This coming week, the community will see Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer for the first time at the CoD reveal event. While PlayStation players were granted a Champion Hill alpha in August, that’s not a true representation of core multiplayer. Those modes will be unveiled by Sledgehammer Games later this week, though, in the Sept. 7 worldwide reveal.
Not much is currently known about the Vanguard multiplayer reveal. Fans can expect to see a sit-down chat with the Sledgehammer developers, where they’ll likely go over different elements of the multiplayer. Of course, there should be plenty of gameplay here too for fans to dissect ahead of launch.
Where and when to watch the Vanguard multiplayer reveal
Tuesday, Sept. 7 is the date set for the multiplayer reveal. Sledgehammer is planning the event at 1 p.m. EST/10 a.m. PST. This is the timeframe that Call of Duty likes to stick to for any kind of event or in-game update.
That’s all that’s currently known about the reveal. The reveal livestream will take place on Call of Duty’s social media channels, including YouTube. Call of Duty doesn’t really go live on Twitch anymore, as Call of Duty has a deal in place with YouTube to exclusively stream their matches and events. However, Twitch isn’t ruled out as a possible location for the multiplayer reveal, especially as a special circumstance for this year’s big release.
When the event does go live, fans will see a plethora of multiplayer details showcased. This could include the Create-a-Class system and all of its aspects, like perks and equipment, as well as information on maps, scorestreaks and everything in between.
The CoD: Vanguard multiplayer reveal is followed by the start of the early access beta on Sept. 10. This weekend is only for PlayStation users only. Xbox and PC players who pre-ordered can jump in the following weekend, starting Sept. 16. Then, the open beta for all platforms starts Sept. 18.
