Weekend 2: Crossplay Beta Part 1 – Xbox / Battle.Net PC Early Access, PlayStation Open Beta

Depending on the platform, the start of Vanguard’s second Beta weekend – from Thursday, September 16 at 10 AM PT to Saturday, September 18 at 10 AM PT – is either an Open or Early Access Beta.

For PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 owners, the first two days of this weekend are Open Access. No pre-order is required.

For those on Xbox Series X or S, Xbox One, or PC via Battle.net, these first two days of the Beta are considered an Early Access period where a pre-order or code is required to play. Furthermore, owners of the Xbox Series X and S, as well as Xbox One, will need an Xbox Live® subscription in order to play during this part of the Beta.

Digital pre-orders will be automatically registered for Early Access – those who pre-order a physical version may find their Early Access code on the retail receipt or sent via e-mail***. Early Access codes – given through physical pre-orders or through special promotions – can be redeemed at callofduty.com/betaredeem while logged into an Activision Account.

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.

Weekend 2: Crossplay Beta Part 2 – Open Beta for All Platforms

The rest of Vanguard’s Beta period – expected to last from Saturday, September 18 at 10 AM PT to Monday, September 20 at 10 AM PT – will be accessible to all players across all platforms.

No pre-order is required for this Open Beta period – furthermore, for Xbox Series X and S along with Xbox One owners, Xbox Live Gold is not required for this part of the Beta.

As the name suggests, crossplay will be active through the Beta’s second weekend, allowing you to play with friends so long as you have each other’s Activision IDs to party up across platforms.

At the beginning of this open beta period on September 18, two more 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.

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 on November 5, 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.

Further intel about these rewards, and exact contents of the Beta, can be found here in the Beta Guide, to be updated on September 16 at the start of its second weekend.
