Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Beta Gets An Extra 24-Hours

Good news, everyone! Those of you enjoying the Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta will get an extra day to play it. A combination of letting fans have some fun and some backlash appears to be the reason the beta was expanded on. The news came down on Twitter as it seems the beta extension was part of a reward to the community, however, people are also calling foul on the fact that PC players have been relentless during the beta for hacking and cheating. Which has led to many disabling cross-play so they can get a normal match in. Whatever the reason, you get more time to play the Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta! You can get full details on it here as it will now end on October 20th at 10am PDT.
