In a classic case of "all fun and games," mega-gaming house Activision has just announced that you can get virtual swag by merely watching people play the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 beta. Yes, you heard that right! A case of spectator sports meeting the gaming world where you literally gain rewards for lazing on your couch munching chips. It's this weekend, peeps, and it's exclusive to PS5 and PS4. I'm not joking.
Let the weekend couch marathon begin! The general public has its first shot at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 beta this weekend. For those folks whose fingers were shish-kebabbed from incessantly pressing refresh to pre-order the game or steal away a key courtesy of Activision, there's an early access period. However, fret not if you missed out. If you didn't manage to get your hands on a beta code, Activision’s sneaky stash is officially on pause. But, there’s a silver lining! You can tune into beta streams and, lo and behold, earn rewards while comfortably snuggling in your PJ's.
Here’s the dealy-o: link your Activision ID with Twitch, plonk down on your couch and watch streams using your linked Twitch account. Voila! Rewards will roll down to you in 30 minute, one-hour, two-hour, and four-hour intervals. Souvenirs include Desk Decor loading screen (because your virtual desk needs sprucing up), K1LLF33D weapon charm (extra luck, anyone?), Let’s Fight weapon vinyl (for that tough guy vibe), and Dangerful weapon blueprint (don’t ask me, I don’t make these names).
Now, while this first weekend, running till October 10, does have a PS-excusive vibe, other platform enthusiasts need not turn green with envy. The gaming gods have been kind. The party picks up again from October 12-14, opening its early access doors for Xbox and PC gamers. The grand finale will be October 14-16, when everyone and their grandmother can team up, irrespective of their preferred gaming gadget, to play together in the final open beta.
The inaugural early-access weekend flaunts four map and four modes for beta testers with an additional map added when the beta becomes a free-for-all for PlayStation testers on Sunday. If you're currently juggling between screens checking out what's included, keep your undies on and head here for a complete guide.
In an interesting turn of events, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's new Create-a-Class system has thrown us a curveball with a tactical vest focus. Talk about an interesting development! Brace yourselves folks; exciting gaming times are upon us!
