The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare beta is now live, and just like the full release, allows for cross-play between all available platforms. The beta is free for PlayStation and PC players, as well as Xbox Live Gold subscribers.
Currently, the beta supports Headquarters, Team Deathmatch, Cyber Attack, and Gunfight. Ground War will also be making its debut this weekend. According to a known leaker and YouTuber, the beta also has a hidden custom games mode.
TheGamingRevolution's tweet, which can be read below, explains that players can input a secret code that allows them to play custom games with all modes, perks, weapons, and killstreaks unlocked. It sounds unbelievable, but TheGamingRevolution has a proven track record of accurate leaks.

It is something that requires a button combination in the menu. #ModernWarfare
He previously leaked information about how Gunfight would work in the beta, and accurately leaked that the beta would have a level 10 cap. Before that he, leaked almost everything there was to know about the Black Ops 3 Zombies DLC. He's also been consistent with various other weapon and information leaks from prior CoD games. Still, every leak should be taken with a grain of salt. TheGamingRevolution continues to post spoilers obtained from data mines to his twitter, so peruse it at your own peril.
In addition to the supposed secret code, beta players have discovered an easter egg about who the villain might be. Spoilers may follow below, so if you'd like to play the game blind you should probably stop reading.
YouTuber, Chaos, discovered a crate on one of the beta maps that says "Zakhaev Arms" on it. The spelling is the same as in Imran Zakhaev, the villain from the very first Modern Warfare game. For the uninitiated (or those who just don't remember), Zakhaev is most well known for getting his arm shot-off by Captain Price in the fan favorite mission "All Ghillied Up," and then is later killed by protagonist Soap in the game's climax. His name appearing on a crate might just be a nod to the franchise, but it could also be an indicator he is returning once again.
