We’re going back to the past in Call of Duty: Vanguard, that doesn’t mean we can’t move the series forward though. The new game follows every theater of war in World War II. The Call of Duty blog outlined everything that we want to hear about the new game and it’s impact on Warzone. It’s scheduled for release on Friday, November 5th, 2021.

Single-Player Campaign

Here’s what they had to say on the blog about the campaign:

Experience combat through an interweaving story of multinational heroes that formed Task Force One and set the stage for Special Forces as we know it. Introducing the heroes of Call of Duty: Vanguard:  

Private Lucas Riggs, 20th Battalion, Australian 9th Infantry Division, British Eighth Army.

Sergeant Arthur Kingsley of the 9th Parachute Battalion, British Army.

Lieutenant Wade Jackson, Scouting Squadron Six, United States Navy.

Lieutenant Polina Petrova of the 138th Rifle Division, Red Army.

The four playable characters overcome the desperation and chaos of war, captured by the Axis powers, each rising from the trenches to become one of the original Operatives; the prototype for the modern special forces soldier as they fight for victory in tide-turning battles across the globe.   

Battle through FOUR theaters of war, all throughout the globe-trotting campaign. This one looks and feels like the biggest Call of Duty campaign yet.

Multiplayer Makes Bigger Promises Than Previous Games

20 maps at launch. That’s really all I needed to hear about this game. Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare both launched with a paltry amount of maps. Vanguard is looking to change that this time around. That’s 20 maps with 16 of them built for the normal core multiplayer gameplay.

It also includes an advanced version of the Gunsmith introduced in MW. Gunfight is getting a makeover and turning into Champion HIll, a 2v2 based mode. Close-quarters, quick-action, and small-squad combat highlight this revision of Gunfight. The multiplayer reveal is coming soon and information about the Alpha and Beta tests are incoming as well.

Zombies Is Back!

Treyarch is confirmed to be making the Zombies game mode for Call of Duty: Vanguard. For fans of the game mode, that’s music to your ears. It also means that Sledgehammer can work more on the Multiplayer and Single-Player Campaigns. The Dark Aether storyline continues and builds more lore on top of the mountain we already have with the Zombies modes of games past. If you thought Black Ops Cold War‘s Zombies was horrifying, just wait until you see where it all came from in Vanguard.

They promise more details on Zombies as Halloween approaches. We can’t wait.

Warzone Is Finally Getting An Anti-Cheat

A brand new map and anti-cheat are coming. That should really be all you need to get excited. But there’s more!

Raven Software continues their work on Warzone and they’ll honor past gameplay and progression. Players of Modern Warfare, Vanguard, and Black Ops Cold War can look forward to all your Battle Pass or purchased content carrying forward. All four games will advance your current battle pass as well. Full integration between Vanguard and Warzone comes at launch when the map comes out later this year. This is truly the most connected Call of Duty experience we’ve ever had.

More information about the anti-cheat and new map is coming closer to the launch of Vanguard.

Meanwhile, that’s all we have for right now, but this is incredibly exciting news about the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard. Pre-orders for the game are open now. Join the fight on November 5th, 2021.

Rise on every front.
