Medal of Honor: Warfighter’s multiplayer beta, which is exclusive to Xbox 360, will go live at the end of this week, according to senior designer Ben Jones.

The date of October 5 was dropped during the latest podcast from Major Nelson.

The beta will feature the new multiplayer mode called HotSpot, where players “attack and defend randomly-selected locations on the Sarajevo Stadium map in Bosnia.”

Inspired by “real life operations,” players will team-up in pairs using the game’s co-op Fireteam system.

The multiplayer beta will be available for a limited time for XBL Gold members and participants will receive an hour’s worth of double XP for the multiplayer mode in the full game.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter launches on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 23 in the US and October 26 in the UK.

Players that pre-order the Limited Edition before the game launches will receive The Hunt Map Pack at no extra cost.
