This means players will be able to check the game out and even explore some of the maps. Furthermore, players who will take part in the Multiplayer Beta (Early Access or the Open Beta) and reach a level of 20 will be rewarded with Weapon Blueprint.

This can be used in Call of Duty: Vanguard after the game arrives on November 5. According to the developers, the Weapon Blueprint will also be made available in Call of Duty: Warzone when the new map makes its way sometime this year.

It is good that a subscription is not mandatory to play the open beta of the game and everyone who pre-orders the game can play and enjoy Call of Duty: Vanguard.
