As has been a tradition in recent years for the Call of Duty franchise, there are actually multiple different ongoing early looks at the game, some of which are PlayStation exclusive.

The first betas available are considered "early access" open betas, only available to players who have pre-ordered the game on their respective consoles. These will be the earliest looks at the game, starting off both of the weekend sessions before opening up to all players.
