Call of Duty: Vanguard has finally arrived. Although there were mixed feelings about the Beta and Alpha, players seem very impressed with CoD: Vanguard’s launch.

Although some players haven’t been too happy with the content for Vanguard’s Zombies mode, generally the feedback for the Multiplayer has been pretty positive.

With players getting on as soon as the game launched, trying their best to level up quickly, you’d think there would be a lot of issues with servers and in-game bugs. Especially when you consider how the Beta and Alpha’s performed.

The post is captioned: “This is one of the most improved games from a beta that I can remember and one of the smoothest COD launches”. This is a very positive note for the developers who likely worked hard to improve the game.

Of course, it isn’t unusual for a Beta to be rough around the edges, and players expect the game to feel better at launch. Yet, the game’s improvements have surprised this player:

“It looks much sharper, the sounds are fixed and it runs and plays much better overall. They have done a fantastic job and so far I love this much more than Cold War, which I have had fun with.”

This user isn’t the only one feeling this way either. Many other comments share the same opinion, with one reading:

“Thought the exact same. Completely blown away by how much better it “feels” and looks. Almost hard to pinpoint the exact reasons, but it feels like a whole different game. Beta almost feels like a mistake at this point based on how different it felt.”

It’s great to see players enjoying the experience at launch, especially within a community like COD’s were it can be quite demanding and hard to impress the players.
