The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare open beta is running this weekend and features cross-play between Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Infinity Ward developers said during the stream that Keyboard and Mouse inputs would be supported on consoles. In the game's lobby, it will indicate what inputs other players are using. Players can opt-out of cross-play if they want. There will be an option to filter out different inputs, so you can choose to play against those with only a controller if needs be.
Voice chat and parties will be supported across all platforms, but to access multiplayer, all players are going to need to sign up for a Call of Duty account. Cross-play will be available across all multiplayer modes with exception to Ranked play or competitive tournaments.
The cross-play beta starts tomorrow, September 19 for everyone who has pre-ordered the game on Xbox One and PC in addition to all PS4 players. Then on September 20th comes the open beta where anyone can play. This weekends beta will run through to the 23rd. You can find the start times of the betas below.
