What with the excitement of giving away 20,000 keys for the Xbox 360 version in one hour yesterday, we quite forgot to add that Activision has restated plans for a Call of Duty: World at War PC beta.

The betas - 360 and PC - both allow players to play as US Marines, German Wehrmacht, Japanese Imperial Army and Russian Red Army factions in team deathmatch, free-for-all, CTF and "War" across three maps.

The maps are Castle (a daytime battle in the grounds of an ancient Japanese stronghold), Makin (a nighttime fight in an outpost on the Makin Atoll in the Pacific) and Roundhouse (a daytime fight in a train depot, featuring tanks and infantry combat).

Activision has said details of the PC beta will pop up on www.callofduty.com/beta and that it will all last for "a few weeks".

Call of Duty: World at War is due out for PS3, 360, PC, Wii, DS and PS2 on 14th November.
