Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's open beta is live now to all PlayStation players, running until Tuesday 20th September, before taking a couple of days rest, and kicking off again for the weekend on the 22nd. The beta is available for all players on PS5 and PS4, and there is a surprising amount to dive into, and you don't even need a PlayStation Plus subscription to do so.

There are four maps to play in a series of different game modes, including Team Deathmatch, Domination, Prisoner Rescue, Knockout and Search and Destroy. There are 10 unique items to unlock as you level up, rewarding you with cosmetics that will be unlocked immediately if you decide to pick up the full game at launch (on 28th October).

The timing on this one is fantastic, considering that exclusive Oni Operator skin was just announced amidst the ongoing war of words between Sony and Microsoft regarding Call of Duty exclusivity.
