How To Get Access to the Call of Duty Vanguard Beta

In the brand-new first trailer for Call of Duty Vanguard, Activision revealed that an Open Beta for the game will be coming soon. Despite this, many fans have been review-bombing the Vanguard trailer.

At the moment it is not known what game modes or maps will be included in the Beta, however, Sledgehammer Games has announced there will be 20 Multiplayer maps in Vanguard at launch.

While every Call of Duty fan will want to play the Beta for Call of Duty Vanguard, not everyone will be able to. This is because the Call of Duty Vanguard Open Beta is only available to gamers who have pre-ordered the game already.

Although, a pre-order of any version of the game will give you access to the beta, so there’s no need to splash out on the Ultimate Edition unless you want to.

If you have pre-ordered the game digitally or have a pre-order code, you will be able to pre-load or download the Call of Duty Vanguard Beta from your platform’s store.

But when will the Call of Duty Vanguard Beta begin?

I wasn't going to buy cod again because cold war is unplayable due to the amount of cheaters. As its got an anticheatim now again interested. The sbmm is really bad in cold war and us older gamers don't stand a chance. I hope they look at this again. I think sbmm was much fairer in ww2. Warzone gets too much effort put into it at the expense of the paying gamers. It will be worse than ever with treyarch involvement. They ripped us off with cold war giving us mainly old maps. A very lazy team.
