Call of Duty: Vanguard will soon be available to PlayStation 4 and PS5 players who pre-ordered the upcoming game. PlayStation Early Access will kick off on September 10.
Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer has just been revealed and the long-winded info dump also brought information about the Vanguard Beta and the two weekends those who prepurchased the game can look forward to. Please take note that internet access is required for both weekends.
Weekend 1: PlayStation Early Access
PlayStation 4 and PS5 players, welcome. The first open beta early access weekend will take place from Friday, September 10 at 17:00 GMT to Monday, September 13 at 17:00 GMT.
Digital preorders will be automatically registered for Early Access — those who preorder a physical version may find their Early Access code on the retail receipt or sent via e-mail.
Early Access codes can be redeemed by visiting this link while logged into an Activision Account.
This Beta weekend will introduce the following samples of the full MP content:
- Three new Vanguard maps: Hotel Royal, Red Star, and Gavutu.
- Three traditional game modes: Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Kill Confirmed — and a new one called Patrol, available during Weekend 1.
- A return to Champion Hill, now with a new weapon set.
Those who show up and manage to reach level 20 will get a special prize: a Weapon Blueprint for Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone (available in Vanguard following the game’s launch on November 5 and in Warzone when the new main map launches later this year). Also, those playing Call of Duty: Mobile will receive an Arthur Kingsley Operator, available shortly after the end of the Beta.
Weekend 2: Crossplay Beta
Depending on the platform, the start of Vanguard’s second Beta weekend — from Thursday, September 16 at 17:00 GMT to Saturday, September 18 at 17:00 GMT will either be an Open or Early Access Beta. More information to come next week.
