Call of Duty: Vanguard launches November 5 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X with full crossplay support, Activision announced on Thursday. The new Call of Duty game returns to World War II and offers a single player campaign, online multiplayer and co-op Zombie modes. Additionally, Call of Duty: Vanguard will “seamlessly integrate” with Call of Duty: Warzone, the studio’s hugely popular free-to-play battle royale title. You can pre-order Call of Duty: Vanguard, starting at Rs. 3,999 on PlayStation and Xbox consoles and $60 (about Rs. 4,470) on Battle.net for PC.
Call of Duty: Vanguard Campaign
The single player campaign in the new Call of Duty game tells the original story of a multinational special force outfit called Task Force One. With soldiers from the British Army, the Red Army and the US Navy, Task Force One embarks on a journey and battles in four World War II theaters: Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Pacific and North Africa. You can learn more about Task Force One and their journey in the Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal trailer.
Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer
Vanguard developer Sledgehammer Games is promising 20 online multiplayer maps at launch, 16 of which will be built for “core gameplay”. A new Caliber system delivers “immersive and reactive environments” that will impact destruction and rate of fire. It also promises weapon customization like never before, thanks to an improved Gunsmith. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s 2v2 Gunfight mode is getting its next version of Call of Duty: Vanguard. You’ll find out more during the Open Beta, taking place between September 10 and 20, a leak previously revealed.
Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies
For the first time in Call of Duty history, Zombies mode crosses over – with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War Zombies, which is last year’s game. That means Treyarch Studios will lead the development of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s co-op Zombies experience, which will continue the Dark Aether storyline we’ve seen in Black Ops Cold War Zombies. More details will be revealed during All Hallows Eve, Call of Duty: Warzone’s Halloween event.
Vanguard 🤝 Warzone
A new root map will be coming to Call of Duty: Warzone later in 2021, which will help roll out full integration with Call of Duty: Vanguard. The two games will then share free post-launch content, new maps, modes, events and playlists. Vanguard joins Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War to support universal advancement. That means you can play any or all of the four ongoing Call of Duty games to build your rank and battle pass.
“Call of Duty: Vanguard is poised to deliver a stunning array of gameplay experiences for the entire Call of Duty community,” said Activision’s general manager for Call of Duty, Johanna Faries, in a prepared statement. “Vanguard’s breadth of content is a hallmark of the title, with more day one multiplayer maps than ever before and the first Zombies crossover in Call of Duty history. Warzone fans will also experience a host of exciting new things as part of the new launch. We can’t wait to share more soon.”
Call of Duty: Vanguard Editions
While the game is available starting at Rs. 3,999, the “Standard Edition” as it’s called, only offers the PS4 or Xbox One version. If you have a next-gen console in PS5 or Xbox Series S/X, you have to pay Rs. 4,999 for the “Cross-Gen Bundle” that guarantees you’ll get a version of Vanguard optimized for your system. Certain bonuses are also payable. There is even more pre-order bonus content available on the Rs. 6,699 “Ultimate Edition”. PC gamers can choose between the $60 Standard Edition or $100 (about Rs. 7,450) Ultimate Edition.
You can pre-order Call of Duty: Vanguard on Battle.net, PlayStation Store and Microsoft Store. Call of Duty: Vanguard releases November 5 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC via Battle.net.
