Anyone can now start downloading the Call of Duty: WW2 PC beta to be ready for this weekend.

Activision has surprisingly made all files for the upcoming Call of Duty: WW2 PC beta available online – and because the upcoming beta will be open, anyone can hit the button to begin the download.

The download comes in at 14GB, and you’ll need about 25GB of free space for the install, so it’s a good thing we can start the download as soon as possible. The beta goes live on Friday, September 29, and will remain available until Monday, October 2. We’re still waiting on an exact time.

If you’re going to be playing, be sure to grab the latest Nvidia drivers. You can take a look at the minimum, and recommended beta specs below, where you’ll also find details of all the content. It’s quite a generous beta, and mirrors the console beta from earlier in the month.

If you’re looking for help and advice when it all kicks off, we’ve got some very useful tips for the best loadouts, Division choices and more.
