Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta Plans

This trailer offers the promised look at multiplayer for Call of Duty: Vanguard, the next installment in the military shooter series. This was part of a worldwide multiplayer reveal, and you can watch that in its entirety here. There's also news for Warzone players, as this article outlines plans to add a new Pacific map to the battle royale. There's also this on testing: "The livestream also gave details for the Multiplayer Open Beta, set to kick off early for those who pre-ordered Vanguard on September 10-13 for PlayStation owners and September 16-17 for Xbox Series X/S, PC and PlayStation owners." Requiring a purchase does not sound like an open beta, but this everything you need to know article has a wrinkle: "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. More information to come next week." But there's more already on the Xbox Website, here it says: "Then, from Saturday, September 18 to Monday, September 20, Vanguard will enter its open beta period, allowing all players to participate. Invite your friends and squad up." Here's more on multiplayer support:
The most ways to play. Tactical combat. The sights, sounds, and feel of war on next-generation technology. A focus on a global cast of Operators. All deeply integrated for a new era for Call of Duty®: Warzone™ that includes a brand-new map and a PC anti-cheat system, both launching later this year.

As detailed through an in-depth Multiplayer Reveal led by members of the Sledgehammer Games development team, Call of Duty: Vanguard will put you in the shoes of a global force of Operators in a down-the-barrel experience of brute force weaponry, all built on an engine developed to power 2019’s Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare®.

Combined with updates from Call of Duty’s lead PC developer Beenox and Warzone’s lead developer Raven Software, this reveal event set the tone for Vanguard’s Multiplayer: a deeply connected ecosystem that details the origins of Special Forces.
