also includes a new progression system call “Divisions”. Players will “enlist in a division and progress through the ranks”. Divisions will include infantry and armored options. Activision confirmed that there will be “Zombies” as well, but provided little other information on this mode.

Players who pre-order the game will be eligible to participate in a private multiplayer beta, but there is [currently] no date for this event. The beta will likely be available first on the PS4 and then make its way to other platforms.
