Thanks to the Call of Duty community, players who enjoy the open beta version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will continue their playing time for 24 hours.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War this week came in beta for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, with crossplay enabled. After emails were sent over the weekend tempting players to solve a series of coded messages, the community came together to solve puzzles. The award was a one-day sequel to the cross-platform beta, meaning it will now close at 6pm British time on October 20, instead of the previously announced 19 October.

“Thanks to the efforts of our incredible code-breaking community, the extra day #BlackOpsColdWar Beta has been unlocked!” official call of Call of Duty on Twitter wrote on Twitter. “The beta version will end on October 20 at 10:00 Pacific time.”
Not all fans will be grateful for the extra time. As Wes reported yesterday, players of the Cold War Call of Duty: Black Ops consoles turn off crossplay to try to escape from PC scammers in beta. Despite progress that has not gone from beta to full release, scammers have already been spotted destroying the game for others.
