Call of Duty Vanguard PS5 Early Access Beta to Use PS4 Version

It looks like the Call of Duty Vanguard early access beta will first be available for PS4 gamers, with the PS5 version using the PS4 game client.

The story is too old to be commented.

Can’t wait until we’re fully away from the last gen consoles.

Yeah it sure sucks a bit to feel like your just getting slightly enhanced ports of PS4/XB1 titles after investing in the new systems, some exceptions obviously being the exclusives. I'm sure I recall a Sony interview where they said the wouldn't do that as well. 🤷‍♂️

i think Covid & Supply shortages changed everything.

And it’s almost been a year!

Wh they were sly/clever they never said they wouldn't do it for any exclusives just that there would be next gen only exclusives. I mean really it's no different to previous gens where they released last gen exclusives in the year or so after they launched the next gen consoles at least this time because its not too hard to they bother giving next gen upgraded versions of the games I recall god of war 2 you had to have a backwards compatible ps3 or you'd have to get the ps2 put to play that came out almost a year after the ps3 and ps4 had exclusive titles release like kingdom hearts 1.5 and 25 collections which took ages before they got a ps4 version among some other tiltes like grab turismo 6 and that never got a ps4 version.

I just want everything on the Switch Lite.. Actually surprised there hasn't been any COD games on it. They always have portable versions.

Extermin8or3_157d ago

Another year seems likely...

Snakeeater25157d ago

They must feel being push really hard by battlefield

Father__Merrin157d ago

I will almost guarantee COD will blow away battlefield

--Onilink--157d ago

Probably, cod is its own kind of monster in terms of sales, regardless of the competition.

And as promising as many things look in BF2042, with DICE everything has been sort of a gamble on how it will actually end up upon release. Even BF4 which is probably their best recent title (and thats saying a lot given how old it is), it was a mess at launch

TheColbertinator157d ago

COD slams Battlefield in terms of sales and popularity. However even taking 20% of the attention away from COD could bring in big cash to EA and could revitalize the series to a new direction.

You know there are going to gimp last gen versions… it’s just for the money

Palitera157d ago (Edited 157d ago )

What else would it be for?

TheRealTedCruz157d ago

I'm confused.
A 3rd party dev/publisher is going to gimp the last gen versions of games in order to cater to a much smaller install base... in order to make more money?

That doesn't make sense to me.

Mr Logic157d ago (Edited 157d ago )

Don't be. In 2014, 1 year after the new consoles Sledgehammer released Advanced Warfare, however the PS360 versions were downgraded versions and made by High Moon.

jukins157d ago

I know right because usually these for profit companies cater to all our dezire instead of worrying about making money /s

anast157d ago

The new Halo is going to smash this game...

BioShockGX157d ago

Battlefield will smash both

DragonWarrior19157d ago

Sorry the smashing feature isn't available at launch like 90% of the game.

Jin_Sakai157d ago (Edited 157d ago )

Vanguard will smash sales charts and be played more than both Halo Infinite and BF 2042.

CertifiedGamer157d ago (Edited 157d ago )

COD is going to continue releasing on X1 and PS4 until 2024 because last gen they kept releasing 7th gen ports until Black Ops 3 was released. Activision cares about $$$$ and next gen consoles don’t have the number of users to drop last gen ports yet

Extermin8or3_157d ago

They released ps3 and 360 versions of ghosts, advanced warfare and black ops 3. So that assuming a similar trend that would mean next years modern warfare would be the last one to release cross gen. Although I could see infinity war not bothering and making it current gen only and not bothering with a ps4 and x1 port purely because of all the CODES the modern warfare series is the most popular I think and I strongly suspect has the draw factor to draw significant bumbers from last gen to the current gen console if they are yet to bother.
