Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta start time and dates

The Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta is kicking off in October, bringing fans their first taste of the next Call of Duty title from Treyarch. If you want to check out the game before purchasing it, there will be an Open Beta to test out the multiplayer.

This could be a good way for teams and players to get an early start, and learn the ropes before possible esports tournaments for Black Ops Cold War begin.
