How to download the Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha

You can download the Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha by navigating to the PlayStation Store on either your PS4 or PS5 console. There, search for “Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha.” The results should list the Champion Hill Alpha for Call of Duty: Vanguard, which you can add to your library and install.

Before we dig further into this guide, it's important that we once again acknowledge the ongoing situation at Activision Blizzard. As a show of respect to the employees, we want to take this section to repost their demands that they shared before the walkout earlier this month. In addition to that, we encourage our readers to learn more about and potentially donate to the following charities: Black Girls CODE, FUTURES, Girls Who Code, RAINN, Women in Animation, and Women in Games International.


The Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha will let players experience Champion Hill, a brand new mode set to launch with the game. Sledgehammer Games details the new mode in a post to the PlayStation Blog.

That’s how you can download the Call of Duty: Vanguard Alpha on PS4 and PS5. It should also be known that players do not need to have a subscription to PS Plus in order to enjoy the Alpha.
