The beta for Call of Duty: Vanguard has just released on the Xbox. Players are jumping into the beta to test out the new game, or at least they are attempting to. The beta has been plagued by glitches and errors that have made even getting into a game a huge hassle. Now it seems that even when players do finally get to load into the game, the technical issues won't stop.

Players like the one in the above clip are suffering from game-altering bugs with textures being misplaced and stretched across the entire screen. This has caused some players to simply have their games crash and others have to play in a visual mess. This is not an isolated incident, nor is this the only major issue plaguing the beta.

Players have had major trouble even getting to the point where these visual bugs occur, as the servers are clearly under heavy pressure right now. It is tough to get into matches or even enter the game in any way. Many players are getting error codes that prevent them from getting on. Even some professional players, whose feedback on the game is incredibly important to needed changes to the game, are having trouble logging in.

The launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard's beta so far has been less than stellar, and for what is a very important year for Call of Duty, the start hasn't been great. These issues will need to be fixed for the full game release, and ironing out these problems is partly what a beta is for. Inevitably every game will have bugs that need fixing, it is just the hope of the community that the issues found upon release aren't potentially game-breaking like some of the ones found in this beta.
