Activision has announced that the Call of Duty: World At War beta starts today for the Xbox 360.
You can guarantee yourself a token (that allows you to get into the beta) by either pre-ordering Call of Duty: World At War for Xbox 360 (either at GameStop stores or online) or by registering to become a member of the official Call of Duty: World At War web-site. The tokens though are in limited supply so you better get registering before they’re all out!
For those wondering, the PC versions beta will also start soon. To learn more about either beta check the official Call of Duty: World At War beta web-site.
The Call of Duty: World at War multiplayer betas will provide players with an opportunity to play as U.S. Marines, German Wehrmacht, Japanese Imperial Army and Russian Red Army factions in a variety of game types (Team Death Match, Free-For-All, Capture the Flag and War), across three different maps:
* Castle: The Imperial Japanese Army faces off against the Marine Raiders in a daytime battle, located on the grounds of an ancient, Japanese castle.
* Makin: The U.S. Marine Raiders square off against the Imperial Japanese Army in a nighttime fight, set in an outpost on the Makin Atoll in the Pacific.
* Roundhouse: The Wehrmact will fight the Red Army to the bitter end in a daytime struggle that features tank and infantry combat, set in a desolate, war-torn European train depot.
The betas will last for a few weeks; however, the full battle will commence on November 11, 2008 when Call of Duty: World at War is released to retailers nationwide.
Call of Duty: World at War will be released on November 11th, 2008 for the PC, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii and DS.
