The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Gungight beta is almost here and ahead of its release, PlayStation 4 users can go ahead and start pre-loading tomorrow. That way, they'll be set when the alpha starts on August 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. The alpha will end at some point on August 25 so if you're interested, pre-load so you don't miss a minute. This alpha is only available on PlayStation 4.
The Gunfight alpha features a 2v2 mode where your loadout is random and unpredictable - you might start with a shotgun and handgun or a sniper rifle. This means you and your partner will have to think on the fly and adapt to any situation. The alpha includes five different maps.
