Vanguard not launching

Eager to play Vanguard and it downloaded yesterday.
When I first tried to launch, it threw me into EVE Online.
When I tried again on multiple occasions, now its failing to launch anything, nothing happens, and the launch button just returns to red from grey.

Vangaurd is not available to play at the moment. It still being built.

Edit: just saw the road map that vanguard is supposed to have a 4 day playtest starting today


Edit: @Martin_Vanzyl are you an omega clone? And have the launcher fully updated?

Yes, omega and yes, everything updated.
