Thanks to the effort to break the Call of Duty community code, players who enjoy the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War open beta will see their gaming time extended by 24 hours.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War went into beta across PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this week, crossplay enabled. After emails tempting players to solve a series of coded messages were sent over the weekend, the community gathered to tackle the puzzles. Rewards is a one-day extension to the cross-platform beta, which means it will now close at 6pm UK time on October 20th, instead of the previously advertised October 19th.

“Thanks for trying to break the code of our amazing community, an extra day of #BlackOpsColdWar Beta has been unlocked!” the official Call of Duty Twitter account tweeted. “Beta will end on October 20 at 10 a.m. PT.”
It’s possible that not all fans will appreciate the extra time, though. As Wes reported yesterday, players of the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War console are killing crossplay to try to escape the PC cheaters in beta. Despite the progress that does not bring from beta to full release, scammers see the game as ruining for others.
