The worldwide reveal for Call of Duty: Vanguard is right around the corner, much to the excitement of the community that has been waiting to see what the next instalment of the series has in store. Just a few days prior to the Battle of Verdansk event that will likely reveal the very first trailer for the game, a leaker has claimed that players will be able to get their hands on the game sooner than first thought.
Just like 2019's Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, a playable alpha of the game is expected to launch, giving players an opportunity to experience Vanguard for the very first time. Here's everything we know about the Vanguard alpha.
Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha Start Date
Twitter user @WW2Vanguard has claimed the Vanguard alpha will begin on August 27th, much to the surprise of fans that were expecting it to take place in a few weeks.
As always with leaks and rumours, it's important to take them with a pinch of salt until official information is revealed from either Activision or Sledgehammer Games.

Thanks to Sony's existing marketing deal with Activision, the leaker also states that the alpha will be exclusive to PlayStation players, leaving Xbox and PC players with a longer wait before they can test the new game for themselves.
It's unclear as to whether an alpha will launch for other platforms but based on recent Call of Duty alphas, the chances of it happening are relatively slim.
