World at War Beta on XBox Live

Yesterday saw Call of Duty: World at War Beta released for free download on XBox Live for all those that missed out on a Beta Key.

If you open up your Dashboard and navigate to the games / demos section, you can start the download. Wait until it has finished and get WaW action before the release date in just over a week.

This move comes amidst a highly charged game release period, with Gears of War 2 coming out tomorrow, Fable 2, Fallout 3 and Dead Space already taking up too much of our time, not to mention FIFA 09. There’s also Mirror’s Edge and Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts coming soon and the inevitable Guitar Hero title.

Looks like Activision are suitably buttering us up to make sure all CoD4 gamers make the jump to WaW…

Of course, this is only available for XBox Live Gold subscribers…

The download is 868MB, so you’ll need a larger 360 to get hold of it. Standard broadband downloads it in about 10 mintues.
