We are pleased to announce the launch of the Xbox360 Multipayer Beta of Call of Duty: World at War today.

Demonware, who are based in Dublin, Ireland, worked closely with Treyarch throughout the development of Call of Duty: World at War, extensively overhauling the COD 4 networking layer and developing dozens of new features for the online portion of the game. Demonware also worked on the PS3, PC & Wii versions of the game.

Since we have some links with the folks in Demonware and we want you to experience the latest multiplayer networking technology we have ten access keys to the closed beta on Xbox 360 to give away free to the first ten people to e-mail aphra at gamedevelopers dot ie and provide me with your real and forum name and your age. (These are in addition to the five we gave away earlier in the week!)

See the forums for terms and conditions at http://www.gamedevelopers.ie/forums/viewtopic.php?t=5196

Demonware have been busy working on other titles too. Keep an eye out for their influence on Guitar Hero: World Tour (PS3, X360, Wii, PC & Mac) as well as the new Bond game, Quantum of Solace (PS3 & Wii).

Thanks to the guys in Demonware for this great prize.
