Activision will finally announce the much-leaked Call of Duty: Vanguard this week. The publisher confirmed that the reveal will take place on 19 August as previously reported. The company has been uploading and sharing a handful of key images and teasers over the past few hours. The images show off the previously-leaked box art along with a 19 August reveal date.
Users have also started spotting the same image across the internet including on the PlayStation Store tab on PS5 consoles. However, the biggest confirmation comes from the official teaser trailer which has been uploaded to the Call of Duty YouTube channel. The short clip includes a range of settings including a train, a desert, forest etc.
The video pans across all these war-torn locations but they all have one thing in common. They all have this hidden face somewhere in the area. We don’t know who this person’s face belongs to but he has something to do with the game’s story for sure. The trailer then ends with the words “see them rise” alongside a reveal date.
While Activision didn’t share the official details for the game’s alpha test, according to leaks, PlayStation users can look forward to a special alpha test taking place on 27 August 2021. This comes as no surprise. Activision usually hosts a special alpha test on PlayStation ahead of the annual Call of Duty release. We don’t know whether or not users have to pre-order the game to gain access to it yet.
