Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal event: Confirmed date, how to play in Warzone

Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal event date & start times

Call of Duty games are typically announced in April or May. Following Warzone’s success and everything Activision can do with the battle royale phenomenon, they confirmed that premium CoD games will be revealed later in the year.

While Activision and Sledgehammer Games still haven’t given us an official date, we now know that Thursday, August 19 is the big day thanks to a new image on the PlayStation Store.

In the image, we get our first look at the official Call of Duty: Vanguard logo, alongside confirmation that the event will start at 10:30 AM PT inside Warzone.

You can find out the start time in your region below:

  • Pacific Time: 10:30 AM PT
  • Eastern Time: 1:30 PM ET
  • British Summer Time: 6:30 PM BST
  • Australian Eastern Standard Time: 3:30 AM AEST (Thursday, August 20)

How to play Warzone’s Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal

While unsurprising, the image also confirms that the Vanguard reveal will take place inside Warzone, much like last year’s Cold War announcement.

The event was likely added as part of the Warzone Season 5 update, although what the event actually entails remains unknown.

Regardless, if you want to be part of it, you’ll need to make sure you’re playing Warzone at 10:30AM PT on August 19, so you can take part live. We recommend getting online earlier than the event start time, as it’s likely that servers will be extremely busy with people trying to get involved.

Should you not be able to get on Warzone when the event takes place, streamers across Twitch and YouTube will be broadcasting it live, so you can still tune in and see what happens.

For the Cold War reveal, players were tasked with finding Woods in Verdansk before quickly making their way to Stadium to see the reveal trailer. We imagine that Vanguard will be revealed similarly, but perhaps Activision will be able to do more with the live event concept this time around for the Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal.

Teasers for the game have already been dropping, with content creators receiving videos, while Warzone’s end-game cinematic also changed.
