Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha Available On PlayStation This Weekend
It’s an exciting time for Call of Duty fans. Just a few days ago, the next title in the world’s most popular FPS franchise was announced: Call of Duty Vanguard. The new title is being developed by Sledgehammer Games and is available worldwide, on all platforms, November 5.
Previously, we have already had a World War II title with Call of Duty: World War II, however, the upcoming game will take players on a journey through each and every front of World War II: Eastern and Western Europe, the Pacific and North Africa. In the Call of Duty: Vanguard, players are able to experience “World War II combat like never before”.
Fans will be very happy to hear that Call of Duty: Vanguard will include a Campaign, Multiplayer and Zombies (developed by Treyarch). Additionally, the new title will also be fully-integrated into Call of Duty: Warzone and will bring a brand new map to the game.
Although the game will be released on November 5, PlayStation users can get their hands on the game for the first time this weekend. Call of Duty have announced that the Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha will be available August 27-29, exclusively on PlayStation. The Alpha will be available to every single PlayStation 4 and 5 user and can be pre-downloaded as of August 23. To pre-download the Call of Duty: Vanguard, simply head to the store and search for Call of Duty: Vanguard, if you can’t see it on the store’s homepage.
Within the Alpha, players will be able to test a limited pre-release version of the game’s Multiplayer, including Champion Hill, one of the brand new modes being introduced to the franchise for the first time ever. Champion Hill is, in one way, a miniature, round-based Battle Royale. The map is large, however, it is split into 5 sections with one central buy zone. Squads of 2 or 3, will compete in a round-robin deathmatch tournament where you are required to reduce the opponent’s life count to 0 before your squad is eliminated. Each squad starts with the same loadout, however, you can collect cash to make purchases and receive upgrades.
Alongside the announcement of the Alpha, Call of Duty also announced the Multiplayer reveal will take place on September 7. Additionally, the Multiplayer beta will take place on:
- September 10-13 (PlayStation players who have pre-ordered the game)
- September 16-17 (Open Beta for PlayStation & other platform players who have pre-ordered the game)
- September 18-20 (Open Beta for all platforms)
We will certainly be giving the game a good test, will you?
