"Together with Raven Software, we're excited to share that the 'Call of Duty: WWII' Open Multiplayer Beta on PC will kick off on September 29th and run through October 2nd on Steam.

"The PC Open Beta is just a small part of the full 'Call of Duty: WWII' Multiplayer experience coming to Steam in November. This test is a critical step on our road to delivering the best possible online experience on Steam at launch in November, with the following key goals:

"Stress test core gameplay systems and online backend infrastructure at scale

"Provide PC fans with their first hands-on experience of the boots-on-the-ground combat coming in Call of Duty: WWII Multiplayer

"Engage with the PC community to fine-tune and optimize the PC experience for November (sic)"

This comes after a successful console beta test in August.
