Call of Duty has had a long history of console exclusivity, and with the official recent reveal of the next game coming out this year, players will be able to get their hands on the game early, as early as this weekend in fact, but only for PlayStation players. There’s no word on a PC Alpha yet, but there will be an upcoming Beta for all platforms.
Call of Duty: Vanguard was officially revealed recently, and Activision has now also announced that the first Multiplayer Alpha is already starting this weekend. Although not a full multiplayer reveal, the Alpha will test the new Champion Hill game mode, which is a sort of blend between Gunfight and Battle Royale game modes.
The Call of Duty Vanguard multiplayer Alpha starts on August 27th at 10am PT (1pm ET / 7pm CEST) for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 players, and you can preload the Alpha starting now. Unfortunately the Alpha is exclusive to PlayStation consoles, but there are some details for PC and Xbox players that are still exciting.
First of all, the official full multiplayer reveal for COD Vanguard is on September 7th, with a multiplayer Beta planned for soon after. September 10th-13th is exclusively for PlayStation Early Access players, with the Early Access Open Beta for all platforms starting on September 16th, and then opening up to all players regardless of pre-orders on September 18th. The Beta will then finish on September 20th.
