Try Call of Duty: Vanguard’s new multiplayer mode in September open beta

Activision lifted the lid on Call of Duty: Vanguard last week with a big ol’ infodump covering everything from the basic premise—an international super-squad attempts to hunt down Hitler 2.0—to how developers created the creepy red sky over the in-game Stalingrad. Now we’ve got the final detail that everyone’s been waiting for: When you’ll actually be able to try it.

An alpha test is set to run this weekend, August 27-29, but that’s exclusively on PlayStation consoles, which doesn’t do us much good except that it will feature the new Champion Hill multiplayer mode seen in the trailer above. It’s “a tournament-style, multi-map and multi-life game mode” that pits teams of two or three against each other in a kind of round-robin battle royale: Everyone starts with the same loadout, but cash earned through pickups or kills will enable players to upgrade their weapons and purchase new equipment, Perks, and Killstreaks during “Buy Rounds” that occur between “Combat Rounds.”
