Knowing how to get early access to the Black Ops Cold War Beta with Xfinity can make the wait for the game's next public showing a little easier. The beta will have several windows during which players can try out the game before release, and Xfinity customers can get in early. Here's how.

How to Get Early Access to Black Ops Cold War Beta with Xfinity

As of Sept. 21, Xfinity customers can request early access codes. To do so, they must follow these steps:

  • Visit xfinity.com/callofduty
  • Click "Request Early Access Code" on the landing page
  • Sign in with their Xfinity log-in credentials
  • Click "Request Free Code"
  • Enter the code on the Black Ops Cold War Beta page

Codes can take around 24 hours to be delivered to the primary email account associated with the Xfinity subscription. Codes are platform-specific, and the PlayStation 4 gets access to the Call of Duty beta first.

PS4 users with Xfinity will gain access to the beta Oct. 8 and keep access through Oct. 10, when the open beta on PS4 begins, until it ends Oct. 12. All Xfinity users who requested and input codes will gain access to the second weekend of beta play. Early access for that second weekend runs Oct. 15-16, followed Oct. 17-19 by full open beta access.
