Call of Duty: WWII will stage an open beta for all PC gamers from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2, Sledgehammer Games announced on Thursday. There’s no obligation to preorder the game, as was the case in the console beta that wrapped up earlier this month.

“The PC Open Beta is just a small part of the full Call of Duty: WWII multiplayer experience coming to Steam in November,” Sledgehammer Games wrote. “This test is a critical step on our road to delivering the best possible online experience on Steam at launch in November.”

The beta is meant to test multiplayer gameplay systems and Call of Duty: WWII’s infrastructure at scale, while also giving fans a taste of the game and a chance for Sledgehammer to take their reactions in and make last minute changes before the game’s worldwide launch on Nov. 3.

Sledgehammer gave the following minimum specifications for the PC beta, noting that these recommendations could change prior to launch.

  • OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
  • CPU: Intel Core i3 3225 or equivalent
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • HDD: 25 GB HD space
  • Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 at 2 GB or AMD Radeon HD 7850 at 2GB or better
  • DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
  • Network: Broadband Internet connection
  • Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
