Activision announced it would be releasing a new spin to the multiplayer first-person shooter title Call of Duty series, Vanguard.
Call of Duty: Vanguard brings players into the beginnings of Special Forces and experiences the nitty-gritty ambiance of World War II. It will also be featuring the series first-ever Zombies crossover.
Vanguard will be using the next-gen Call of Duty engine introduced with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to bring the four major theaters of WWII and its characters to life. The engine will also help enhances its gameplay for a next-level Call of Duty experience.
Vanguard will feature both solo and multiplayer modes. Multiplayer, in particular, will have 20 multiplayer maps at launch, which includes 16 core maps that will uniquely bring adrenaline-pumping pacing and reactive gameplay environments.
Besides getting the classic game modes, it will also have a new mode called Patrol, an objective-based mode featuring a constant-motion scoring zone. In addition, a new tournament-style mode called Champion Hill hosts a series of head-to-head matches in either solo, duos, or trios in an arena consisting of four maps.
Developed by Treyarch Studios, it will also be the franchise first to have a Call of Duty Zombies crossover, connecting the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies storyline.
Activision also mentioned that the game would deliver a fully optimized experience and extra features for PC players, including ease-of-use settings, multimonitor support, and input latency reductions.
Vanguard will launch worldwide on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Battle.net by November 5, 2021.
