Call of Duty: Vanguard’s Crossplay Beta will take place in the next few days.

Since 7 p.m., pre-orderers of the full version on PC (Battle.net, system requirements) and Xbox have been able to try out the beta version of the shooter – as well as all PlayStation users, including those who have not pre-ordered the game. From September 18th at 7pm the crossplay beta will also be open to all interested players on PC and Xbox. The test run will last until September 20th.

The following multiplayer content can be tried out:

  • New cards for Vanguard: Hotel Royal, Red Star and Gavutu.
  • Classic game modes: Team Deathmatch, Domination and Kill confirmed
  • as well as a new mode: patrol.
  • Access to the new Champion Hill mode.
  • Further content is to follow.

“Beta participants who make it to level 20 will receive a weapon blueprint for Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone (available in Vanguard after its release on November 5th and in Warzone as soon as the new map releases later this year) Call of Duty: Mobile players will receive Operator Arthur Kingsley shortly after the beta ends. “

The Combat Pacing System should also allow a new dynamic game selection and more ways of playing. The following options should be selectable in the queue in multiplayer mode:

  • “Tactical: These are the lobbies that the veterans among you should already be familiar with. Here you get the classic Call of Duty experience. Tactical Combat Pacing only ever consists of 6v6 game modes.
  • Assault: This option offers you a balanced gaming experience with enough room to breathe and enough goals to complete. Assault is somewhere between Tactical and Blitz in game speed. In the first weekend of the beta, the number of players varies between 20 and 28.
  • Blitz: In these action-packed lobbies, the game moves up a gear. When choosing Blitz, prepare for a variety of battles. The number of players will likely vary between 28 and 48 players.


For those of you who just want to join any game, you can also select the Combat Pacing ‘All’ setting to try out the various Combat Pacing options in different matches, such as switching between game modes in Quick Play. “
