'Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War' Beta: How to Get a Free Xfinity Code

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War hosts its highly anticipated multiplayer beta this October, and Xfinity customers can be among the first to experience the action across PS4, Xbox One and PC. Below, we'll explain how to get a free early access beta code without pre-ordering the game.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta dates

Before getting to the actual steps, here's a reminder of all the Black Ops Cold War beta dates, for those who may have missed them during prior reveals:

  • October 8-9: Early access PS4
  • October 10-12: PS4 open beta
  • October 15-16: Early access for Xbox and PC/PS4 open beta
  • October 17-19: Open beta on all platforms

The code offered through this Xfinity partnership allows Comcast customers the opportunity to play during the early access period on their platform of choice. For those on PS4, that is the weekend of October 8. On Xbox and PC, the earliest start date is the weekend of October 15. You can, of course, continue to play during open periods as well, along with everyone else. This code basically just gets you a couple more days with the beta than the general public.
