Eurogamer is happy, historically sensitive and proud to announce that we will soon have thousands of beta keys for Call of Duty: World at War on Xbox 360 to give away. (Yes, we're reinforcing the servers first.)

That's because Activision remembers you all for your spectacular devotion to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and wants to reward it. At least, that's the way we like to think about it, although we suspect the real decision probably involved words like "bespoke", "convergence" and "segmentification".

The beta will launch this month, we've previously been told, although how long it will last and what you'll be able to do on it have yet to be announced.

We're also told that you will be guaranteed access to the beta if you pre-order the game from GAME in the UK, and that you can do this right now. The full thing is due out on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, PS2 and DS from14th November.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
