This week saw the official Open Beta for the next Call of Duty game available on PC. Thankfully the Beta was extended into further in the week, giving players more time to try out the new WW2 shooter. If you managed to get a chance to play it, then we want to know your thoughts on it!
Call of Duty is obviously one of the biggest gaming franchises out there, launching a new release every year. Whether or not this is a tactic that will last (especially as the prevalence of how much harder it's getting to develop games quickly, doubly so in a global pandemic), Call of Duty: Vanguard is releasing in just under a couple months, and already some have expressed issues with the Beta.
However, we just want to know your raw input. Did you enjoy it? Will you be getting Vanguard this year? Or will you be skipping it? Have you played any of the other recent COD titles? And how does it compare? Let us know all your thoughts, good or bad, in the discussion area below and in the polls!
Personally, I enjoyed Vanguard quite a lot. Despite its issues, the Beta ran pretty well on my PC, a far cry from Black Ops Cold War even a year after its release. Although Sledgehammer Games is going for a neo-WW2 aesthetic, everything is fairly grounded compared to previous titles. But I worry that won't last very long with the introduction of tracer rounds at launch, and the inevitable Anime-themed weapon skins a month after release.
What do you think? Did you play the COD Vanguard Beta? What did you think of it? What did you enjoy most about it? And what are your main concerns? Let’s debate!
