Twitter Account PlayStation Game Size recently discovered a “Call of Duty: Vanguard Champion Hill Alpha” listing on Sony’s PlayStation Store. It was leaked that a PlayStation-exclusive alpha will be available from 27 to 29 August. The leaked store listing suggests that the alpha will be available for PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 users only and an open beta for all platforms is expected to be available on a later date.

According to the listing’s name it is possible that only the Champion Hill mode will be available as part of the alpha. The new game mode will allow teams of two to compete against each other in closed-quarter maps. Activision revealed that the Champion Hill mode will feature eight teams of two.

How to Download Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha

Prior to the alpha release of Call of Duty: Vanguard, players should be able to pre-download the game files from the PlayStation Store. Here is how you can download the game:

  1. Head to the Store app on your PS4/PS5

  2. Search for “Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha”

  3. Click on the appropriate store listing should mention “Alpha”

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War did not require a PlayStation Plus subscription to access the alpha, so it is possible that the Vanguard Alpha will not require it either.
