Call of Duty: Vanguard internal alpha called Slipstream surfaces

Recently, tracking website Blizztrack found an internal alpha build for the upcoming COD title on Battle.net. The digital platform owned by Blizzard houses many of its popular games including the ones from the Call of Duty franchise. Blizztrack owner Helba tweeted about this build and revealed that it is called Slipstream.

Helba also showcased some of the assets the internal build included. He also released the logo for Slipstream in his tweets along with some assets titled Fore which requires an Authentication Code to open. This means that it’s a closed build for the developers to work on, and it’s not a version that players or fans can try. With the game set to release later this year, fans will receive a playable alpha build in late fall similar to Black Ops Cold War last year.

PlayStation Network reveals size of Slipstream for PS4 and PS5

Other than that, Slipstream also showed up on the PlayStation Network. Because of it, fans also found out about the size of the internal alpha builds of Call of Duty: Vanguard for PS4 and PS5. The PS4 clocked in at 28.4 GB with update 1.01 coming in at 26.5 GB. Additionally the PlayStation 5 variant had a download size of around 35.32 GB.
