World at War 360/PC beta official, PS3 beta ‘coming soon’

Demos are so last generation. These days if you really want people to trial your game and feel useful doing it, you have to launch a beta! Glorified demos or not, they’re certainly gaining popularity, and Treyarch’s Call of Duty: World at War is but the latest game to ride the crest of this beta-shaped wave.

Last year only Xbox 360 and PC owners managed to get in on the Call of Duty 4 multiplayer beta, as is the case this year — Activision has today announced that both a 360 and PC multiplayer beta will begin this October, preceding the game’s November 11 launch — leaving the PS3 out in the cold somewhat. However, it seems that the tide may have turned this year! After a quick query on the possibility of a PS3 beta, Activision told MTV’s Multiplayer Blog, “We will have more information on that coming soon.” So fingers crossed!
