Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta Details: FAQ

Will my Experience in the Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta Transfer To the Full Game?

No, the experience points that you earn in the Call of Duty: Vanguard Open Beta will not transfer over to the full game when it releases on November 5. This to create an even playing field when the full-game launches, as well as to allow the beta to act as a testing ground for potential problems with not only the tech in-game, but also the progression systems and weapons.

Where is the Call of Duty: Vanguard Beta Available?

It is still not clear where the Call of Duty: Vanguard Early Access Open Beta will be available in the world. That being said, we can assume that North America, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand will have access. Access to the Vanguard Beta will vary, however, from territory to territory. For example, we expect some countries in South America, Africa and Asia will have access, and some will not.
