Sledgehammer Games and Activision confirm that Call of Duty: Vanguard there will be an alpha starting on August 27th, 10 AM PST until the same time on August 29th, free of charge for PS4 and PS5 players. It can start now from 3 AM PT onwards. They are Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War pe Call of Duty: Warzone installations can be used via the theme menu, which either loads you into alpha directly or prompts a download from the PlayStation Store page.
The main appeal of this alpha is the new Champion Hill track. This is the Gunfight battle but with a much larger map and survival with a race-mode. As a Duo or Trio, your team competes against each other in a round-robin-style tournament with the goal of reducing team ties to zero. While everyone has the same starting load, you can pick up Cash on the map for upgrading weapons, purchasing new equipment, assigning new Perks and more in between.
The map at this point includes four battlefields – Airstrip, Trainyard, Market and Square – with the Shopping Mall in the middle. With the new system, players can practice four Operators – Lucas Riggs, Polina Petrova, Wade Jackson, and Arthur Kingsley, who were also the main characters of the Campaign – and use 10 different categories for changing weapons. More information will be given on Champion Hill in the coming days so stay tuned.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is out on November 5th for Xbox Series X / S, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and PC with its world first gameplay debuting at Gamescom Opening Night Live on August 25th.
