More info on the Beta:

We know you have a ton of questions about the upcoming CoD: WW Beta, so we put together a quick FAQ on the Xbox 360 Beta. Stay tuned, we’re in the process of developing a much more in-depth FAQ on the PC and Xbox 360 Betas.

QUESTION: What is the CoD: WW Xbox 360 Beta?
ANSWER: Treyarch is recruiting dedicated Call of Duty fans of to help test Call of Duty: World at War’s performance from a gameplay and backend standpoint. Feedback and performance data from this Beta will be instrumental in ensuring CoD: WW’s success from Day One! This Beta will have a limited space so make sure you get your name in the hat to get a token!

QUESTION: Who gets to be in the CoD: WW Xbox 360 Beta?
ANSWER: For U.S. consumers, read on to find out more. For our international comrades, many more countries will have access to the Beta program, so stay tuned! People interested in joining the beta in the U.S. can join one of two ways:

  • Guarantee a spot by pre-ordering the game through GameStop or
  • Getting first-crack at a token by heading to CallOfDuty.com and signing on as a new community member. Remember, space is limited so the earlier you register, the more likely you’ll get a token.

QUESTION: If I already have an account on Callofduty.com, should I create a new one?
ANSWER: No! See below for how the handout of tokens will work, but if you already have an account with us there is no need to sign up anywhere, you’re already in line!

QUESTION: How does token distribution work for members of CallofDuty.com?
ANSWER: To reward the most dedicated CoD fans, the order of distribution on CallofDuty.com is as follows:

  • Charlie Oscar Delta members who migrated their accounts over to CallOfDuty.com
  • CallofDuty.com members
    (CallofDuty.com members will be prioritized by they date in which they joined CallofDuty.com. The longer they’ve been a member, the better chance they have of getting a Beta Token.)

QUESTION: How will we get the keys?
ANSWER: Beta keys will be emailed to the address you have associated with your membership on CallofDuty.com. We will be announcing the start of the Beta on CallofDuty.com as well as emailing everyone selected to participate.

QUESTION: When will the beta start and how long will it last?
ANSWER: The beta is tentatively slated for October and will conclude prior to the game’s November 11th launch. As soon as we approach the launch of the Beta, we will notify everyone who is eligible to participate.

QUESTION: Will I have the opportunity to provide feedback?
ANSWER: Absolutely. When the beta launches, we’ll provide information about how you can communicate back to Treyarch.

QUESTION: Will there be a PS3 beta? If not, why?
ANSWER: No, there won’t be a PS3 beta. The Xbox 360 and PC environments will provide the feedback that we need to make any back-end technical modifications to the co-op and multiplayer features, which means an optimized experience for everyone, independent of the console they own.

QUESTION: When will more information be released on the PC beta?
ANSWER: More information on the PC beta will be posted soon, please stay tuned. The PC beta is also planned for October.

Oh well, I made a new one. I hope I get a code!

Hopefully I'll get the beta test because this is the first game in awhile that I've seriously considered getting at launch.

Thanks LinkinPrime for the updating of the post. I'll try to stay on top of this once more info is released.

@the Beta release info:

I'm almost certain I won't get a token due to the fact that I was one of those that registered a few days after the announcement. I really hope there's enough tokens to go around. Perhaps they will release some extra ones later on? Please IW! PLEASE!

Last year I signed up weeks after the beta was announced and was able to get in the COD4 beta. There might be hope, we'll see when they start giving out tokens.

Ehhh I dunno about the leaked perk list. Seems possible but come on, the second chance perk seems to be too good.
Free 360 game by completing 2 offers. If you don't believe it just give it a shot. I spent $4 to get Dead Space. $13 to get Madden 10. PM me if you need help.

The medic class in COD3 was able to revive teammates, that isnt too far-fetched id say.

I'm sure it'll be good, but I don't know that I can play yet another WW2 game multiplayer.

You took the words outta my mouth. I gotta go trade a few things in tomorrow at Gamestop and i'm planning on moving the credit i've currently got on Socom over to this. Didn't even realize this was coming out so soon. Between this and Gears 2 no time for another shooter plus the beta is free and Socom is another $60. :D

Activision said Gamestop 360 preorders will get into the beta, but no word yet on when the keys will be given to Gamestop.

Right now the only other thing for preordering is you will have the M1A1 unlocked for multiplayer from the beginning of the game.

I got to play the level in the OP last month as part of the competitive coop game mode. It's like playing the scoring mode in Halo 3. Lots of fun.

Oh, neato. Thanks for the heads up, Hitman!

If I am not mistaken, isn't this the same gun in COD2? If so, I hope they improved its stats.

Keifer Sutherland voicing the American General in this game and saying things like "Outstanding, Marines! Out-fucking-standing!" at the end of a victorious MP round makes this my GotY 8-)

No news on the beta.... Gamestop says they are expecting them but have no idea. Callofduty.com says nothing and is full of people crying about the lack of beta news.

I believe Gary Oldman is voicing the Russian. No, not Gary Coleman. But that would be funny.
