Ubisoft has confirmed to Eurogamer the first people to pre-order Tom Clancy's EndWar for Xbox 360 will get access to the open beta.
As reported by IGN, Ubi is billing the beta as a "VIP demo". Those taking part will be able to try out the multiplayer element of the game and help out with an online stress test.
The VIP demo will begin in early October. Access tokens are limited and will be dished out on a first-come, first-served basis.
Tom Clancy's EndWar is out this autumn on PS3 and Xbox 360.
UPDATE: Ubisoft has now informed us this deal only applies when you pre-order the game at GameStation in the UK.
