Call of Duty Vanguard: Official Release, Systems, and Everything That You need to Learn:

Call of Duty Vanguard

- (Wallet or purse) There are a few constants in the games schedule that you can count on, and a regular Call of Duty release is without a doubt one of the most dependable.

Call of Duty Vanguard teaser: A new take on an old setting?

It's a franchise that has released approximately one game every year for aeons, and we now know a lot about the upcoming instalment in the series, Call of Duty: Vanguard, which is set in World War II.

Rumours and facts are still flowing, presenting us with some snippets of information that Activision has yet to reveal, and this is where we'll be collecting all we know about Vanguard.


Continue reading to learn everything there is to know about.

When will Call of Duty: Vanguard be released?

As previously said, Call of Duty games don't have especially flexible release schedules - you can typically anticipate one to come out around Autumn each year, and 2021 will be no exception.

Sledgehammer Games, who previously developed Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Wwii, both very well-received entries in the series, is Vanguard's major developer, and they're already building on it for quite some time.

The game's launch date was disclosed in Aug as part of a Warzone live event, and it is as follows: 5th of November, 2021


Platforms for Call of Duty: Vanguard:

When it comes to platforms, we've now received complete confirmation of what you'll be able to play Vanguard on. The game will be available on the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.

When the game is released, next-generation consoles will be approaching their one-year anniversary, so you can expect them to lead the charge for more graphically intense and smooth-running gameplay, but every platform will aim for 60fps.

It has also been revealed that the game, like Civil War, would be cross-platform and cross-generational. Of course, whether an extra year for the oven allows the next COD to push its graphics farther than Cold War remains to be seen, but we're hoping for 4K action and ray tracing to ensure everything looks its best.

Α and β tests for Call of Duty Vanguard:

Ahead of the game's debut, there were a number of well publicised testing to allow gamers to get their hands on a select Vanguard pre-launch maps and modes.

That include Alpha and Beta tests, and we were among who participated in both. The testing allowed us to explore several new maps and try out a variety of weaponry, and we were quite impressed with how things are shaping out.


But that's all until launch - there are no further testing planned, and Sledgehammer Games is hard at work incorporating the lessons learned from the many, many hours of playing.

Gameplay of Call of Duty: Vanguard

Although there are a few things we can be confident of when it comes to a COD game, there are still some genuine uncertainties.

What we do know is that it will be a first-person shooter with a rapid time-to-kill and twitchy gameplay, as well as a very short yet dramatic narrative and a sizable multiplayer component.

We understand that the single-player plot follows a squad of troops through several World War II fronts, documenting the origins of special operations forces, while multiplayer will start with 20 maps, one of the most places ever served up by a COD game at launch. The first demo is placed above this section, and it depicts playable character Polina's entrance to the conflict in the pandemonium of Stalingrad.

There are a few new improvements coming to Vanguard as well, expanding on concepts introduced for Modern Warfare in 2019, some of which can be seen in the clip thus far. For example, weapon mounting is becoming more difficult, with blind firing and mounted mobility joining the party, and from what we've seen, there's also a lot more climbing.

Unbuildable cover will allow you to modify the battlefield more than any previous COD game, and a comprehensive Gunsmith system will allow you to customise your weapons to an almost obsessive degree of detail.

There's an online multiplayer mode called Champion Hill, which sounds like a small-scale battle to the death and looks like a lot of fun, and we'd expect to see some new and returning pieces of equipment and weapons to round things out.

We played a lot of this mode during the initial Alpha test, and it is definitely far more similar to Modern Warfare than Cold War, as befits the games' common engine. Recoil was more difficult owing to antiquated weapons, and there were lots of problems to work out - but that's what these testing are for, so we're looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

The game's multiplayer announcement broadcast took place in early September and has plenty of fascinating information to give about how some of the game's new features will actually function in action, so make sure to watch the entire thing if you're especially interested - it's embedded above.

The narrative and title of COD Vanguard:

Activision's official announcement trailer shows that pre-reveal picture leaks hinting at a WWII scenario were correct. And, while that little film didn't reveal everything (it was just a teaser, after all), it did corroborate a few things that later trailers have confirmed.

Vanguard will be centred on four locales seen in the teaser. Soldiers will fight on the main battlefields of the War on the East Front, Western Front, Pacific Front, and North Africa.

In addition to this campaign, which should cover the world and offer different aesthetics, there will be a full continuation of the zombies mode, developed by Treyarch in collaboration with Sledgehammer, which is an intriguing development.

This is the first time we've seen such collaboration amongst companies on a single title, with Treyarch explicitly carrying on its history on Zombies from Cold War - but we'll be back in World War II, where it all began.

The reveal trailer above makes it appear like a map-hopping good time, so we're excited to get our teeth into it.

Integration of Call of Duty Vanguard and Warzone:

Since the introduction of Vanguard in Warzone, it has been obvious that the Battle Royale would be an important element of Activision's plan for the franchise in the future. That is verified by the fact that Warzone will receive a massive amount of new content when it is released.


Finally, there will be a whole new map, as well as the significant announcement of anti-cheat software for PC gamers, to assist battle the tide of hackers that has been overpowering the game on various platforms in recent months.

We know understand that the next map will be situated in the Pacific, and from the little glances we've gotten, it looks extremely stunning, especially in compared to the rather dreary landscape of Verdansk that we've been destroying for so long.

Warzone will also get a slew of new weapons based with Vanguard, but it won't lose any of the guns or skins that players have earned or purchased thus far - it'll be a veritable feast of material.

Only time will tell if this implies Warzone is truly travelling back in time, or if we'll be playing in a modern-day setting on an ancient battlefield - for now, all we've seen is the terrain from a zoomed-out viewpoint.
