Call Of Duty Vanguard Returns To WWII This November (VIDEO)
Following numerous leaks, several teases, and (finally) an official announcement, Call of Duty Vanguard has made its big reveal, bringing with it a whole host of initial details. As revealed in an official trailer, Vanguard is shown to be a stunning recreation of the World War II setting, portraying the epic and intense historical struggle from the faces of four distinct fronts: Eastern Europe, Western Europe, North Africa, and The Pacific.
As per the latest Call of Duty blog post, Sledgehammer Games establishes the new single-player campaign as “the origins of Special Forces,” following the experiences of four playable heroes as they battle the Axis and ultimately “change the face of history” with the formation of Task Force One. Vanguard is additionally teased to feature “a deeply engaging and raw campaign” wrapped with the “signature combat you’ve come to expect from Call of Duty.”
“Whether dogfighting over the Midway Islands, defending Stalingrad with a sniper’s precision, airdropping over France, or blasting through advancing forces in North Africa, this is a deeply engaging and raw campaign, with the signature combat you’ve come to expect from Call of Duty. Test your mettle across beautiful but battle-scarred war fronts as hope strives to triumph over conflict.”
As one might surmise from the new trailer, Call of Duty Vanguard utilizes the same next-gen engine from 2019’s Modern Warfare, enabling spiffy upgrades like “breathtaking visual fidelity, a photo realistic world, lifelike characters and impressive graphical performance that enhances gameplay.” The coming entry is also boasted as “the most connected Call of Duty ever,” featuring integration with Warzone, full cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-gen support, a robust multiplayer experience, as well as a number of free post-launch updates in the pipeline.
