Beta sessions for highly anticipated Modern Warfare 3 commence this October. Gamers stashed in the bunker and Xbox controllers at the ready!

Call of Duty MW3 Preps for Big Entrance on Xbox

Get ready to wash off those dust-covered combat boots, Xbox squad. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, a.k.a. the game that makes you miss your bedtime. It is going to make a dramatic parachute drop into your Xbox just in a month's time. The word ‘excitement’ doesn’t even begin to cover it, folks!

And what do we get as a bonus? Well, how about an open beta for fans to smash buttons into? The event is quite an operation, with multiple rounds across different systems, so let’s break it down like an old rifle for you. Here’s the tangible, honest-to-goodness scoop on when you can play the MW3 beta on Xbox, whether you’ve pre-ordered or you’re hopping into the free, open beta period. Spoiler: It’s happening sooner than you think!

Grab your tactical gear if you've pre-ordered Modern Warfare 3 or managed to snatch an early access beta code. You can then dive right into the virtual shootout on October 12th. To be specific, the first round of the Xbox MW3 beta is open for action from October 12 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST till October 14 at the same time.

For those of you wanting to freely leap into the beta (no pre-order required), we’ve got you covered too. The open-to-the-public beta warfare commences on October 14 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST until October 16 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST. The beauty of it all is that pre-order players also have the chance to play throughout the second open beta period. If you’ve strapped in a pre-order for MW3 on Xbox, you’ve signed up for a solid four days of relentless gaming action.

Are you riddled with anticipation for the upcoming MW3 beta? Would you be willing to consider a 48-hour non-stop gaming session? (Disclaimer: We're not responsible for any sleep lost.) Let us know if you’re playing and how much coffee you plan on consuming.

On a somewhat related note, Modern Warfare 3 Multiplayer Reveal Trailer recently showcased some classic COD maps in action. Let's just say, it's like seeing an old flame at a high school reunion: emotional, nostalgic, and a little bit terrifying.

Some of the recent user comments on the upcoming beta include a candid remark from Altaria_97, who expressed miss for the days of the original MW2 maps. BRT15, on the other hand, fired a salty bullet at Activision for allegedly offering less content at the same price.

Well, whatever the case may be, there's no denying that the countdown to MW3's arrival on Xbox has begun. And whether you're new to the battlefield or a seasoned veteran, the thrill of the fight awaits. So gear up, dive in and remember the golden rule: It's just a game... (Right?).
