What To Expect
The beta will allow you to head into battle and test out three of the six available combat rigs. You will be able to fight on three different maps and test four different game modes.
There will be four game modes available for you to test out on three different maps.
The game modes will feature fan favorites Team Deathmatch, Kill Confirmed, Domination, and will also introduce a whole new game mode called Defender.
In Defender your team must take control of a drone and do whatever it takes to defend it and keep it in your possession. Points are gained for holding the drone so teamwork is vital. As one teammate holds the drones and avoids death, it will be up to his teammates to ensure his survival.
The three maps that you will be able to play will be Frontier, Frost, and Throwback.
From the Activison Blog:
FRONTIER Circular, two-lane, fast-paced
Frontier is a small section of a giant space station that is in orbit around the planet Neptune. The action is funneled down a long, central corridor with side paths offering an element of strategy and a constricted lower lane for players craving chaos.
FROST Linear, three-lane, medium-paced
A research facility set atop the icy surface of Jupiter’s moon Europa. Ample opportunities for vertical combat and rapid encounters around sleek modular elements highlight this frozen battleground.
THROWBACK Bent, three-lane, medium-paced
This throwback 1950’s ‘Main Street USA’ locale sits on a giant, rotating, torus-shaped space station. A large circular lane rings the perimeter, while a large center square with multiple avenues of approach and two opposing windows offers a wide range of engagement opportunities.
New Ways To Play
Along with all these things you will also be able to test out the new crafting system that was revealed earlier today. You will now be able to upgrade your base gun and alternate between different prototypes of it. Prototypes will come in four levels; rare, common, epic, and legendary. Each level will have different perks that will aid you in battle with epic and legendary having the most sought after perks, one of those being the Tactical Nuke. You will be able to craft better guns with Salvage. Salvage can be earned in different ways so the more you play the more prototypes you will be able to acquire.

A new way to earn experience has also been introduced. Mission Teams will allow you to complete missions for different teams that will go towards experience for your player. You will also be able to earn calling cards, camos, Combat Rig cosmetics, and prototypes unique to your team. In the beta you’ll be able to test out two of the four available teams: JTF Wolverines and Orion Initiative.
