Earlier this year the folks at Activision announced the next installment in the Call of Duty franchise in the form of Call of Duty: WWII. The game is expected to be made available across consoles and even PC, and if you’re a PC gamer looking forward to the game, you’ll be pleased to learn that the open beta will be kicking off this month.

Sledgehammer Games, the developer behind the title, has confirmed that Call of Duty: WWII’s open beta for the PC will begin on the 29th of September. The beta will allow gamers to experience a small part of the game’s multiplayer, which we guess is more or less the reason why many gamers play titles like Battlefield and Call of Duty to begin with.

The goal of this open beta is to stress test the game’s servers, meaning that the developers want to ensure that when the game is officially launched, things will go smoothly and players will not encounter too much lag or interruptions. If you are interested, the minimum system requirements for the game have also been posted online.

This will require gamers to own a PC with Windows 7 64-bit or later, an Intel Core i3-3225 or better, at least 8GB of RAM, 25GB of HDD space, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or an AMD Radeon H D 7850 with 2GB of VRAM or better. If you meet these requirements, then you’ll want to mark down the 29th of September on your calendar.
