How to Fix Call of Duty Vanguard Beta 'This Game Cannot Be Installed Yet' Issue

Are you trying to play the Call of Duty Vanguard beta? Is Battlenet not letting you do so? For shame. Here's how to fix the issue on COD Vanguard where 'this game cannot be installed yet'.

Call of Duty Vanguard: This game cannot be installed yet

So, it's actually a really simple fix, thankfully. Just a little confusing at first.

If your Vanguard game won't let you install the game with the message 'this game cannot be installed yet', the install button will be greyed out, like the below:

Not to worry! All you have to do is click 'Call of Duty: Vanguard' under where it says 'Game Version' and you'll be able to select which version of the game you want to play. From there, click 'Beta' and the download will become available, as seen below. It'll require 14.5 GB of free space.
