The MW3 beta has multiple rounds across different systems though, so we're here to break down exactly when you can play on Xbox - both for pre-orders and for those looking to jump into the free, open beta period.
Call Of Duty MW3 Xbox Pre-Order Beta (Release Dates & Release Times)
If you've pre-ordered Modern Warfare 3, or have gotten hold of an early access beta code via other means, you can start playing on October 12th. Here are the full beta release times for the first round on Xbox:
- MW3 Xbox Pre-Order Beta Release Times: From October 12 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST until October 14 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST.
Call Of Duty MW3 Xbox Open Beta (Release Dates & Release Times)
For those of you jumping into the beta once it's open to everyone on Xbox, here are the full beta release times for the second, open-to-all beta session:
- MW3 Xbox Open Beta Release Times: From October 14 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST until October 16 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm BST.
Of course, pre-order players can continue to play throughout that second open beta period as well, so that's four days in total for those of you who've locked in a pre-order for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on Xbox.
