After revealing that the franchise is heading back to its roots with World War II, the summer proceeded to get only busier for Call of Duty: WW2. Fans got a look at the multiplayer side of the popular shooter at E3 2017, followed by the new horror-inspired Zombies mode at San Diego Comic Con a month later. With a private beta set to kick off later this month, Sledgehammer Games has announced a few rewards for participating players.
As a way of saying thank you to fans, Sledgehammer Games announced a couple of unique beta items players will receive for jumping in during the Call of Duty: WW2 private beta that runs on the PlayStation 4 from August 25-28. Known as the Private Beta Combat Pack, items included are a calling card, an emblem, and a helmet with the star logo and the word beta emblazoned on the side.

Eager players will need to first pre-order the game and then redeem the access code on the main Call of Duty website in order to access the closed beta sessions. Participating fans will then get their hands on these exclusive in-game rewards once the full game launches in November.
This news comes on the heels of the multiplayer beta gameplay details last week, which seems to center around the new divisions system. During the private beta test, players can opt to join one of five total divisions including Armored Division, Mountain Division, Airborne Division, Expeditionary Division, or Infantry Division. Each of the five divisions grants a special skill and training which can increase in effectiveness through normal progression.
At this time, Activision nor Sledgehammer have revealed what sort of modes will be available during the beta test. For now, PlayStation 4 players get exclusive access to the test when the gates first open on August 25. Weekend 2 of the beta test begins on September 1 and it finally opens up to all three platforms and before ending for good a few days later on September 4.
Call of Duty: WW2 launches on November 3, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
