Infinity Ward has announced that the Beta Weekend 1 on PlayStation 4 has been extended for 24 hours and will now end on Tuesday, October 18 at 10AM PT.

In the same announcement tweet, Infinity Ward has revealed that the beta feedback they have been receiving has been helping them optimize the game for launch.

The game features a new matchmaking system that is designed to give players the highest quality games than before, which they needed to use the beta to stress test for launch.

  • But there will be 2x or even 4x or even 10x or even 1000x the amount of players on launch, I don’t get that whole “stress testing the servers” thing.

    • There’s probably more people playing the beta than there will be playing the game at launch since everyone who pre-ordered the beta and got their code, got 5 friend codes aswell. So 6x the amount of people are playing the beta than there would have been.

      • You are not accounting for those who got a beta code from a friend and ended up buying the game, but I guess that’ll get negated by the amount of people who’ll cancel the pre order lol

    • djml9

      They might have not had all the servers up for the beta

  • Aidan

    I swear, if they don’t extend it for Xbox one…

    • Activision Shareholder

      Then what? You’ll never buy a cod again but you do it anyways? 😀

    • CoDforever

      why would they? PSN had problems, thats why they extended it. If xbox too then they will

      • Brad of Duty

        Why would they extend this one? PSN gets it next weekend

      • BradyAlucard

        “PSN had problems” sure, blame it on PSN and solely PSN, when this could have happened to XBL just as easily, and it could this weekend you never know. It’s pretty hard to stop a hacker group so this false misconception that XBL is the perfect, best online service is no longer the case like it was last generation.

    • Mick

      It’s probably going to be fixed for us anyways. I doubt it man don’t get your hopes up.

    • Stefan Lang

      They might still do it just as a thank you to everyone for playing.

      • Brad of Duty

        If they don’t it’s a big fuck you to Xbox players

        • ScOott

          Not really no one got to play the day it came out.. If xbox gets an extra day great, if not it’s not a feck u, ur not entitled to anything…

          • Playstation has access to it aswell, so if they extend the xbox weekend, that gives another day to playstation too.

          • PS4 gets two weekends. Xbox only gets one.

        • djml9

          Is it really when day 1 on ps4 most everybody was unable to play?

          • Brad of Duty

            I saw plenty of gameplays up on day 1 so don’t even tell me that. Also it’s already a massive fuck you that the PS4 has two betas. For bo3 there were 2 betas, one being exclusive for each system.

          • djml9

            The vast majority of people didnt get to play on day 1

        • They already done the whole “fuck you” thing with PS4 having two weekends and Xbox only one weekend.

        • darren

          How? Were you waiting 10 hours to play a game? Are you still experiencing issues? Oh right! Xbox hasn’t had issue one yet. Besides, be patient. You’ll get your chance to get bent over by IW and Activision next weekend. You’ll be begging for them NOT to extend it.

    • ccrows

      Who cares, and this is coming from an XB1 owner.

      You really only need 1-2 days to know if your gonna like the game or not… *shrugs*

    • S[e]v[e]n

      meh who cares by the time the beta is over for xbox1, it will only be 10 days before the game comes out.

  • Brad of Duty

    If they don’t extend next weekend’s it will be over for them

    • Edward Richtofen Adolf is bae

      Hey it’s captain tinfoil hat

  • Well who could have guest this would have happened? Omg what a plot twist!

  • Matchmaking is still a major issue, even if it is for a minute or two, still quite major.

  • ScOott

    I hope the match making isn’t like A.W.. I’m having to sweat alot, I don’t know if it’s cuz it’s a new game n I just haven’t reached full potential yet or if the match making is hardcore skill based.. I haven’t had to try this hard since my first CoD tho..

  • lunator100hd .

    The manchmaking is broken, i have to wait for 2-3 min just to find a lobby and then another 3min to start the game, why it says ”waiting” for no reason?

    • “Waiting” is basically “Waiting for players”, but could be more than just that idk

      • lunator100hd .

        12 players in a lobby and still ”waiting” for 2 min, wtf?

    • Frank Rizzo

      I know right.

      When the beta was broken on Friday afternoon, that staus bar in the bottom right was spouting off all sorts of random bs. That also leads me to believe that the connection bars aren’t legit either.

      • Partyin’ Pete

        Everyone always has 5 bars, but my gunfights say otherwise.

  • DEMOLITION12

    do i really want to play this lag comp shit for another day though

  • Assist King

    The TTK style worked on Ghosts because the maps were bigger. Some were too big. This is like trying to play hardcore on Nuketown in BO3. A lot of other issues, but hoping it is because it is just the Beta. Sick of that fucking guy yelling Wolverines at me all the time. That is annoying as hell. He tells me to try harder when we win and great job when we lose.

    • lunator100hd .

      Yeah this guy is a bad idea.

      • BradyAlucard

        I think it gives the game character.

        • Yo mumma

          while on the topic of bad characters… who else thinks that the Quatermaster sounds like a robotic Ned Flanders?

          • BradyAlucard

            Meh I think he’s fine. Better than the Black Market guy from the 54i.

          • Yo mumma

            Yeh good point.

    • BradyAlucard

      Nah, it worked on Ghosts because of the hit detection, and the camping was its biggest problem, I’ve never seen such creative ways to camp. The gunfights were usually fair most of the time because of how the hit detection worked. I don’t even think it was a matter of TTK, if the health would have been oh-so-slightly increased, then it could have been a much more enjoyable experience.

      • Assist King

        People camp in every COD. Ghosts was no worse than any other games. Playing BO3 right now and two guys camping their ass off.

        • BradyAlucard

          Ghosts had worse camping than any other game I’ve ever played. The maps and dullness catered to it.

      • Assist King

        Hit detection was good in the game as you said.

        • BradyAlucard

          Or maybe it was the TTK that made it seem like the hit detection was good (although that might be disproven with test videos).

  • djml9

    It’s too close to launch”, they said. “They wpmt be able to change anything”, they said.

    • They also said that sniping was chest-high/headshot only but look what’s happening. You can’t trust Infinity Ward.

      • RdJokr

        Who said chest/headshots only? I sure as hell don’t recall anyone from IW saying that. Plus, if anybody paid close attention to all the footage from CODXP, they would’ve noticed all the snipers’ description anyway.

        • w
          • RdJokr

            Well there are a lot of factors involved in the game as well, so they probably thought that in theory it would be hard to achieve such things.

            Sadly, quickscoping is even easier to do with Quickdraw being a thing for the snipers now.

          • There’s no problem with trying to defend this game or its developers, but don’t you think we need to start looking at their products and statements from a critical standpoint? The time for assessing their actions must occur now before the franchise kills itself. I’m just saying that if they’re not going to follow through with what they say, then just simply don’t say it as to prevent further disappointment. By the end of the day, I just want this game to be good. I yearn for those feelings of fun and fulfillment that I had with Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops 2. Is that too hard to ask for from Activision?

      • tuby

        I have no problem with QS.

  • Partyin’ Pete

    Cool, maybe I’ll actually find a match by then.

  • Yo mumma.

    Honestly digging the game so far, lots to fix by far but the only main issue I have ATM is in gunfights . I find that if you take even a little bit of damage in one fight you will probably lose the next one . Anyone having this problem ?

  • darren

    Funny. All the hype, and all the be they’ve released about this game. “New” this, “new” that, whatever. But the biggest change to the game, they never announced, and just slid it in now.
    A new matchmaking system is a pretty HUGE thing to change, and this is the first time hearing of it? I guess it just goes to show how out of touch Infinity Ward is.

  • [EV] BLISS

    When are they going to increase the MAX LVL which right now is 30?

  • Qaotik

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but the netcode seems so bad that I get Johnny 5’d each match

  • darren

    “It’s me, Infinity Ward. You know, the people who brought you beloved Modern Warfare series and fish AI. We’ve listened to you and your feedback, and decided we know better. You know, we brought you Modern Warfare. We knew what you wanted then. So, obviously, nothing has changed. We dropped our greatest title ever, Ghosts, so I think we know better than you. So, because you guys can’t figure us out, we’ll give you another day of beta just so we can stress test our servers. And don’t worry Xbox owners. You will get the very same experience as PS4. ”

    At Least We’re Consistent

    • Jay Evan

      Triggered AF

  • BradyAlucard

    The issue with this game isn’t with petty things like aesthetics, I absolutely love this game when the lobbies aren’t too sweaty. The issue with recent CoD games is that they’re too chaotic and random, especially with the maps in this game, but all in all it is leaps and bounds superior to Ghosts and Advanced Warfare no question. Frost is my favorite map in the beta so far, and the game isn’t “bad”.

  • They better i’m still level 11 lol too busy to play a lot but we still got it next week so i’m good

  • Former

    Shit better get extended for Xb1 next weekend.

  • Abel Rayado

    The game is good but you get killed way to quick. Can you guys fix that?

    • Kobrah

      I can’t fix it. Sorry ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • awlagfare

    I love this game man! it makes me desire mwr even more!
    I don’t know where u guys all live but as a dutchman constanly in american lobbies getting a positive k/d was imposible. I did loved the sniping though, so atleast there was 1 positive thing. And come the fukc on, even though it’s a demo why can’t they make the servers work, friday night i was only able to play 1 game, saturday 1 hour aaaaaand ‘conecting to matchmaking’ for 30 minutes

    • tuby

      maybe its just your skill lvl I didnt have any problems to get good positive k/d,
      And I am from the Netherlands also.
      Agreed with the service issue

      • awlagfare

        maybe your a camper:-) kidding. me and buddies who always have a positive kd and pretty much no life every cod every year all suffered from it. It was really really really hard to win a 1 v 1 situation every fakking time.

        • Tuby

          I am no camper. I didnt had much trouble to get positive kd during the beta.i be honest and also had some sweatty matches. But moreover I hope the matchmaking will be better by release and grind the prestiges.

  • Anyone have an extra beta code for ps4?

    • ScOott

      If u on the forum, message me on there n I can send u one… unless u want me to put it on here n hope no one trolls u n takes it lol..

  • Alex

    Ohh who cares.. One thing that shits me to tears are the laser gun sounds FML.
    It’s just not fun for me 🙁 It’s been a shit few years for COD,

    Can pew pew please fvck off

  • im worried about PC port

  • Sam

    I think the art style of this game is on point! It feels like mw3 on acid and I love that haha. Very impressed with it feels like a true cod game welldone IW!! Ignore the hate this is fun it takes skill and cods needed that for years.

  • M0987

    looking at the lukewarm to negative reception so far, it looks we got another ghosts or advance warfare dont we?

  • Genuinely not hating on the game, but I’m surprised at how identical the game looks to BO3. Honestly I was expecting the multiplayer to be a bit more unique and surprise me when the footage comes out but from the footage I’ve seen you could mistake it for a BO3 DLC with bits of AW added. It’s no wonder people always rip on COD developers for not trying something new

  • Andrew Morgan

    Hi would Anyone have an extra beta code they don’t need for xbox one pm me tnx

  • lunator100hd .

    Markofj already got a nuke……..im done.
