Wondering whether the MW3 beta requires PS Plus subscription? We’ve got answers for you. It’s another time of the year once again when players can gracefully get their hands on a new Call of Duty game, especially one that promises the return of the series’ most dangerous threat so far. 

So if you’re looking to get your hands on the MW3 beta on PlayStation, we’re here to provide you with the necessary information you need to access the beta. If you need a quick refresher on the series’ campaign before MW3, then we suggest going over our Modern Warfare story so far guide. With that said, let’s talk about needing a PS Plus subscription to play MW3 beta. 


Does MW3 beta require PS Plus?

You do not need a PlayStation Plus subscription for both PS4 and PS5 to play the MW3 beta. However, players in Germany will need a PS Plus subscription to play the beta due to the game’s age rating. 

However, while you don’t need a PS Plus subscription to access the beta outside of Germany, you will need internet access to participate in the MW3 beta. 

MW3 beta start time for PlayStation 

As always, the first weekend is exclusive to PlayStation, with early access granted to those who pre-ordered, while the second week of the beta is open to all players at no cost. The first weekend of the MW3 beta is set to kick off on Friday, October 6 at 10 A.M. PT and conclude on Tuesday, October 10 at 10 A.M. PT. 


Players who pre-ordered the game on PS4 or PS5 can jump in starting from the first date. Following that, the remainder of the weekend, beginning on Sunday, October 8 at 10 AM PT and ending on Tuesday, October 10 at 10 AM PT, will be open to all PlayStation players, including those who didn’t pre-order.

While we can’t wait to get our hands on the MW3 beta, it’s also worth adding that it’s not the only big Call of Duty event that’s around the corner. If you want to know what’s in store for the future of the Call of Duty franchise, be sure to tune in for Call of Duty Next.
