Another year, another Call of Duty. Four years after Black Ops Cold War, Treyarch is back again with Black Ops 6. Promising political power struggles and the return of round-based zombies, the latest entry in the Black Ops series should be huge.

To take part in the Call of Duty Black Ops 6 open beta, you need to “Pre-order any digital edition or subscribe to select Game Pass plans.”

The words are not ours, but they belong to the official Call of Duty Black Ops 6 Xbox store page, which details everything you need to know about the FPS title’s editions, what’s included—and how to be a beta participant.

So, it doesn’t matter which edition you opt for, as long as you pre-order and show you’re keen, you can guarantee yourself access to the open beta. We know Black Ops 6 is a first for the franchise as it is included with Game Pass from day one.

Given the Microsoft and Activision merger, this should come as no surprise and could well be a business decision made with each subsequent Call of Duty game.

Check out more news about the Black Ops 6 release including news of the old Prestige system returning, as well as the first-time addition of multidirectional diving.
