Sony Online Entertainment just sent me a note letting me know that the Vanguard: Saga of Heroes beta 5… or a “Sneak Peek” as they call it initially… is available to Station Access subscribers who have also opted in to get the SOE Vanguard email newsletter.
Since the beta key is in with the email, there is no place I can send you off to in order to get one. You have to go to the SOE site and opt in for Vanguard mailings.
The note does warn that the beta is “…a large file ? you may want to patch overnight.”
They closed up by letting me know where I could pre-order the digital download version of Vanguard, which will give me access to the game three days in advance.
