After days of leaks and rumors, Call of Duty: Vanguard was finally announced this week. Launching on November 5, 2021, this iteration returns players to the era of World War II, but more expansive than ever before.
Developed by Sledgehammer Games, the single-player campaign will explore four different frontlines of World War II – The Pacific, Europe’s Western and Eastern Fronts, and North Africa. The campaign will introduce the genesis of the Special Forces with Task Force One, an elite team traversing the war. You play as four different soldiers attempting to turn the tides of war.
In addition to the massive single-player campaign, the game’s multiplayer mode will be launching with 20 maps on day one. Plus the Zombies mode will feature the first-ever crossover. Zombie mode is being developed by Treyarch Studios with more details to be revealed later. As for Warzone, the free-to-play game will feature a “new map, new gameplay, and new experiences,” according to the press release along with a new anti-cheat system.
“Call of Duty: Vanguard is primed to deliver a stunning range of gameplay experiences for the entire Call of Duty community. Vanguard’s breadth of content is a hallmark of the title, with more multiplayer maps on day one than ever before and the first Zombies crossover in Call of Duty history,” said Johanna Faries, General Manager, Call of Duty, Activision in a statement. “Warzone fans will also experience a host of exciting new things to come as part of the new launch. We can’t wait to share more soon.”
