    I imagine everyone knows this coming and all of the new features by this point?
    New engine, small to large player counts, SP and Spec Ops are returning, etc, etc.

    Gunfight Open Alpha is available on PS4 this weekend (today until the 25th) and it's really good.
    Really nice looking, plays really well. Still has the tight responsive control and feedback but the new ballistic-based weaponry (no longer hitscan) means realistic recoil and bullet drop so it doesn't entirely feel like CoD that you remember.

    Quite excited about launch now!

    Managed to get on the first time but now I can't seem to get on. Still connecting to online services apparently!

    Itís definitely having more issues with connections tonight than it has done all day. To be expected, unfortunately - I canít recall anyone thatís handled servers brilliantly for big titles pre- or on launch.

    Word from Charlie Intel is that a restart of your PS4 is required apparently to get back online. I W have also updated the playlist with a new map.

    Was fine for hours this morning and its bloody good fun. Haven't been interested in cod multiplayer for a bit but this is really addictive.

    I lost 7 games and won once. But I really like this gunfight 2v2 mode. So much fun :)

    An alpha for a game that's released in two months? They really should have started working on it a bit earlier.

    Wow, played for an hour there. The 2v2 idea is fantastic and very addictive.

    This really is a very good COD...

    In one match it was just me vs 2, I annihilated them :-) so much fun!

    Very, very tactical too.

    5 maps open now, and a second Gunfight game mode where you need to scavenge the weapons.

    Really enjoying it, played a couple of hours on my own before hopping on with a mate, it's much better with comms, guns sound and feel meaty to use and it's definitely got me interested in going back to Call of Duty again. I just want to see how they handle all the in game purchasing before deciding to pick it up.

    @Derblington what's the 5th map called/like? Played Docks briefly before going out which I really enjoyed, the only one I'm not keen on but probably more to do with me never doing particularly well on is the one in the woods.

    Have you noticed the enemies name appear above the players head when looking for them, do you think this is a design choice?

    I had a go on Friday and thought it was alright. Had a good go tonight on the new scavenger mode and won a few games. A bit good this and if the campaign is good it'll be a purchase at some point.

    Maps are too small to be scavenging imo. Loving the game overall though.

    Great game! Even better when u can play with someone and talk to call out where enemies are.

    Some annoying things that luckily have been picked up on reddit, my main 2 are the black and white screen on near death and the headglitching, especially on stairs. You cant even see their head but they can see you, very frustrating.

    But, solid game, great guns and feels tight otherwise. Looking forward to this one.

    The damage effect had been called out by YTers from gameplay events previously. I hope they change it but it doesn't seem like it for launch.
    Headglitching has unfortunately been a part of CoD forever.

    Much as I'm enjoying this, Gunfight really isn't something I'd play much of. I'm far more interested in their regular and large scale modes.

    The new maps are really good, they're definitely on to a winner with this game. Haven't been this excited for call of duty since COD4, the gunplay feels quality and the 2v2 goes up a few notches when you're playing in a party.

    I'll be picking this up at launch, shame the alpha ends today!

    You can just pre-order at amazon and then cancel after you've got the code.

    Urgh, left it too late to get in on the Pre-Order / Cancel meme via Amazon - they issue 'within 48 hours' so no point really as the open beta starts then. Loved the Alpha, this is the most interested I've been in a COD since MW2 probably.

    If there's any spare codes going, I'd love one and be eternally grateful.

    [Edit] Took a chance on the Amazon Pre-Order. Will update if it's worth trying so late in the day.

    This is good.
    I really want to try out their large-scale modes though.
