As we know from previous Beta’s, details can be changed at a moments notice.

Particularly in years with heavy server outages, Beta dates have been extended to compensate for the lost playing time.

In addition to new maps and modes, the beta also comes with a heavily-requested Field of View slider on all platforms. Check out the best settings for Black Ops Cold War’s FOV feature here.
