The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War multiplayer beta is coming up very soon, and developer Treyarch has now shared a little more insight about what to expect from it.
Lead game designer Tony Flame said on Twitter that the beta will represent “quite an upgrade” over the alpha that PS4 players got to play in September. “I don’t think anyone quite realizes what this team can do in a short amount of time,” Flame said. “From new features to the core feel, nearly everything has taken leaps forward.”

My favorite part tho: the new lobby music kicks it

Flame also pointed out that the Black Ops Cold War beta will be a separate download compared to the alpha, so you can delete it from your PS4.
The Black Ops Cold War beta runs October 8-9 on PS4 for people who preordered the game, while all PS4 users get in October 10-12. The next weekend expands the game to Xbox One and PC, in addition to PS4, and cross-play across systems will also be available.
