The Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War open beta has been extended and that means more game time for those who haven’t pre-ordered COD 2020.

Some PS4 owners have been able to play quite a lot of the new Call of Duty title, which will be launching on November 13, 2020.

Meanwhile, Xbox One and PC open beta players had to wait until Saturday before they got access.

And the good news is that everyone will be getting another 24-hours to explore Black Ops this week.


Activision has confirmed that they have extended the official times on open beta across PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The official Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War beta end date has been changed to Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

This means that the Call of Duty beta end time has been changed to 6pm BST, or 10am PDT, on Tuesday.

A message from Activision adds: “Thanks to the code-breaking efforts of our incredible community, an extra day of the #BlackOpsColdWar Beta has been unlocked. The Beta will now end on Oct 20th at 10am PT.

“Equip all weapon attachments now through the remainder of the #BlackOpsColdWar Open Beta.

“During the Beta, experience signature Black Ops combat across traditional 6v6 modes, the higher player count 12v12 Combined Arms, and a brand-new 40-player mode, Fireteam: Dirty Bomb.

“The Beta will feature a selection of the game’s Multiplayer maps set in distinct global locations during the Cold War. Players can progress and rank up in the Beta-specific levelling system where loadout items, including new weaponry, covert spy tech through Field Upgrades, and badass Scorestreaks can be unlocked by earning XP.”

Gamers can unlock the following bonuses over the remaining beta time:

  • Unlock Adler in Call of Duty Mobile.
  • Reach level 10 to unlock the Mutual Animosity blueprint.
  • Up to 4 tier skips in Modern Warfare and Warzone.

Here’s more on that Mutual Animosity blueprint that can be unlocked this week: “All players who reach Level 10 within the Beta will receive the “Mutual Animosity” SMG Weapon Blueprint at launch in the full Black Ops Cold War game.

“This Blueprint comes pre-equipped with four attachments for a versatile stealth SMG build, and could be a mainstay in your arsenal across all game modes.

“A Weapon Blueprint is a variant of a weapon family within the game, complete with its own unique name and cosmetic differences.

“Weapon Blueprints may also come pre-equipped with attachments, allowing you to use them on that specific weapon without needing to level it up to unlock those attachments organically. These attachments can be swapped out in favor of other attachments earned by levelling up the weapon normally.

“Try to explore every weapon within the Black Ops Cold War Beta to find what works for you and experiment in Gunsmith to craft your perfect tool of destruction. You may find the perfect gun and attachment setup that’ll be instrumental in earning those high-end Scorestreaks, destroying the enemy team’s vehicles, equipment, and Scorestreaks, or better yet, leading the squad to a well-deserved victory.”

The Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War beta will be the last change for gamers to play the new COD before its official launch date.
