No PAL Beta For Call of Duty 4

The yanks take it all

Posted by Staff
Activision has confirmed that when the multiplayer beta for Call of Duty 4 hits later this month it will only actually hit North America.

SPOnG spoke to Activision and was told simply, "I can confirm it's U.S. only." No explanation is available as yet, although one is expected shortly.

There are no technical reasons why the beta could not be made available in the U.K. and Europe, as Halo 3 demonstrated. The restrictions are more than likely due to logistical reasons relating to Activision's infrastructure for either distributing the software or gathering results.

SPOnG was enamoured with Call of Duty 4 when we came across it at Activision's preview day last month and we're more than a little disappointed that we won't be able jump into the beta. Whatever the reason is, had better be good, or... something bad.

You can read more about Call of Duty 4 on SPOnG's dedicated game page.

Bloody bastards. Oh well, seems to me like a PR hype demo anyway. Surely this game has to go gold a few days after the beta ends? How can they make any changes and then find time to test them?
