Call of Duty Vanguard Pre-Order Guide

Call of Duty: Vanguard will arrive later this year and as usual, the Call of Duty title will offer multiple editions and plenty of great bonuses for pre-ordering.

Pre-ordering usually benefits players with in-game bonuses and certain editions come with nice goodies too.

While information is still a bit vague, we do know a handful of bonuses that will arrive for pre-ordering the game.

Here's our ultimate pre-order guide for COD 2021.

Pre-Order Dates

Pre-Orders are currently unavailable as the game has yet to be revealed to the world.

Recent leaks suggest a reveal could be coming to Warzone soon and soft pre-orders may be going live in the next few months.

It might be that places start to give players an opportunity to register their interest.


Pre-Order Bonuses

It's likely that the first benefit is that players that pre-order the game digitally will receive access to the beta.

As it stands, the beta has no real details but we could see it arrive in September (which is the traditional period for a Call of Duty beta).

Players also usually receive a flurry of bonuses with it.

Last year, players received a number of bonuses in the Ultimate Edition of Cold War including:

  • Season 1 Battle Pass Bundle
  • Land, Air, and Sea Pack
  • Confrontation Weapons Pack

It's no surprise to see the Battle Pass system return in Vanguard. Last year the bundle granted players 20 Battle Pass Tier skips.

Editions And Prices

Here were the editions available last year:

  • Standard Edition - £59.99
  • Cross-Gen Bundle - £64.99
  • Ultimate Edition - £89.99

The Standard Edition includes the game for the selected platform only.

It's yet to be confirmed if players will be offered another opportunity to upgrade to the next-generation version of the game.

Considering the global pandemic has hindered the ability to produce mass numbers of next-gen consoles, they may opt to go ahead with it again.

Activision allowed players who bought the digital standard edition on PS4 or Xbox One to upgrade to a PS5 or Xbox Series X copy for $10/£5.

The Standard Edition of the game will be priced at $69.99 for PS5 and Xbox Series X.

The Ultimate Edition includes the game (on both current and next-gen consoles), Battle Pass Bundle (including 20 tier skips), Land, Sea and Air pack and the Confrontation Weapons Pack.

The Cross-Gen Bundle allows players to buy the game and get an upgrade to the next-generation version.

Last year was the first launch without special physical editions. Modern Warfare launched with the following editions:

  • Standard Edition
  • Operator Edition
  • Operator Enhanced Edition
  • Precision Edition
  • Dark Edition

It could be that physical editions are re-introduced this year.

There are no physical editions of Black Ops Cold War for PC, it will only be available digitally via Blizzard Battle net.
