E3 2007: COD4 Multiplayer Beta Announced

One of the highlights of Microsoft’s press briefing was Activision’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare which thrusts the hugely popular military-themed FPS into the current day while showing off Infinity Ward’s incredible attention to detail. During a brief (too brief!) single player demo, a multiplayer beta was announced at the event and today, Activision and Infinity Ward have scheduled the beta for August. From the press release:

Through the Xbox LIVE gaming and entertainment network, players will get to experience the party system and join in progress for matchmaking that’s as quick and fluid as the gameplay. Delivering innovations, including create a class, player ranking and the new perk system, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer delivers unlimited possibilities across new, detailed game environments and modes.

“This August gamers will get a sneak peek at what is going to be the best multiplayer game this fall,” says Grant Collier, Studio Head at Infinity Ward.
