Modern Warfare II Open Beta Dates and Rewards

Before getting into the rewards you can earn, it’s important to know when it’s even possible to participate in the COD Modern Warfare 2 Open Beta. While the title says open, there are different dates for players depending on the edition they purchases and the platform they’re on. As the trend has gone for the past few years, PlayStation players will get the earliest access. Below you can find all of the important dates.

  • September 16-17: PlayStation Early Access
  • September 18-20: PlayStation Open Beta for all on the platform
  • September 22-23: Early Access for PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.
  • September 24-26: Open Beta access for all platforms and players.

The early access designations in the schedule are set for players who have preordered the game already. Playing on PlayStation will net you two different weekends and preordering, in general, will give you a couple of extra days. But everyone will have access by September 24. Each weekend will also have a list of rewards and those can be found listed below.
