Last week with the PlayStation Early Access Beta, Call of Duty: Vanguard kicked off its latest round of testing and this coming weekend we’ll be having access to the full open beta on all platforms, with Activision adding some new content to explore.
We will be getting access to the Search & Destroy mode, a new map, and additional playlists, including 24/7 Team Deathmatch.
In addition to the core content of the Beta introduced in Week One – the Champion Hill experience as well as Patrol, Team Deathmatch, Domination and Kill Confirmed on Hotel Royal, Red Star, and Gavutu – Week Two will begin with a new map and mode. Search & Destroy will be available starting on September 16, along with a new map – Eagle’s Nest – that can be played across all five core modes.
At the beginning of this open beta period, two additional featured playlists will become available: a Solos version of Champion Hill, and a 24/7 Team Deathmatch playlist on Royal Hotel and Eagle’s Nest with Combat Pacing set to Blitz. Crossplay will be active through the beta’s second weekend, allowing players to play with friends.
Those who participate in the beta and reach level 20 will receive two rewards:
- A Weapon Blueprint for Call of Duty Vanguard and Warzone, available in Vanguard following the game’s launch and in Warzone when the new main map launches later this year.
- An Arthur Kingsley Operator in Call of Duty: Mobile, available shortly after the end of the Beta.
Activision Blizzard will be launching the Call of Duty: Vanguard’s second weekend of beta testing this Thursday on September 16 for all PlayStation owners and those who have pre-ordered on PC or Xbox.
Following September 18, the true open beta for Call of Duty: Vanguard begins for all platforms and will continue until September 20. Call of Duty: Vanguard storms onto PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5 on November 5.
