Call of Duty: WWII’s private multiplayer beta, which begins Friday, Aug. 25 on PlayStation 4, requires pre-ordering the game. However, customers of Comcast’s Xfinity Internet service can get in without a pre-order.

Beginning today, Xfinity subscribers can request a code through this site to get access to the beta. The dates are still the same: PS4 on Aug. 25, Xbox One on Sept. 1. All requests for an Xfinity code must be made by Aug. 31. The beta ends for both platforms on Sept. 4.

The promotion, announced this morning, is part of Comcast’s larger efforts in esports and video gaming, said Matt Lederer, its executive director of partnership marketing. “Our partnership with Activision is a natural extension of our esports affiliation and gives us the chance to offer our customers something really special,” he said.

The beta will offer three maps and three modes, plus a preview of Call of Duty: WWII’s new War gameplay mode. This post has more details on what is included in the beta.

Call of Duty: WWII launches Nov. 3 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
