Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II is scheduled to release on Oct. 28, 2022, but fans won't have to wait that long to get their first glimpse of the game with the beta coming this weekend.

Call of Duty has made many shocking announcements in the past few weeks. Including what the Gulag would be, what the full list of Killstreaks would include and even a big announcement revolving around the map for Warzone. One of the biggest pieces of news though revolves around a change in perspective.

Call of Duty is adding a lot of changes across many different facets of its game including multiplayer. One change is adding a third person.

Call of Duty is adding some specific modes that will just be third-person enabled modes, meaning Call of Duty is no longer just a first-person shooter. This is a big shift that people are excited to try out in the open beta.

Here is exactly what Activision had to say about the change via their website:

In this mode, the camera is set a few feet back over the right shoulder of your Operator. This allows you more perspective on your overall surroundings, in exchange for less depth of field in front of you.

Activision on the third person mode.

How much does this change for the overall game? Well. that depends on how much you play the third-person modes. If you are interested this is drastically going to change the way you see the game with a wider perspective.

In the multiplayer reveal trailer, you can see the third person in action around the 2:20 mark. Check out the video below:

The public beta will be available on PS4 and PS5 from Sept. 16 through 20 for those who preordered and Sept. 18 through 20 for everyone else. There will also be a second weekend for Xbox and PC as well.
