If there’s one thing in the gaming industry that you can count on, it’s the annual release of a new entry in the Call of Duty franchise. In more than 15 years, the series has never gone a year without giving out a new entry, with many sub-series like Black Ops or Modern War under the same umbrella.
Call of Duty: Vanguard, as we now know it will be titled, will be the next entry developed by Sledgehammer Games that takes place during World War II. This group was originally lined up for last year’s entry but was pushed to this year to be released Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War instead due to internal problems.
At this point, details are still scarce, but the new reports have given us a solid bit of information to go for, plus, we can safely assume that when looking at the process. past of the series. Here’s everything we know and suspect, about the next entry in the best-selling FPS series.
Release date for Call of Duty: Vanguard is a big question mark in everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, we haven’t received any specific answers from the developer or publisher yet – but that doesn’t mean we don’t have a general idea of when the game will come out. Call of Duty titles almost always launch in the fall, usually in November, and early reports have quoted Activision employees as saying the game will be released in the fall. Call of Duty is a franchise that can essentially dominate whatever release window they choose to work on, so competition was never a factor when they decided to release their game. themselves and so far, November has proven to be extremely profitable for them.
So far, limited details about Call of Duty: Vanguard was just mentioning that it was an experience built for the next generation; However, that could be marketing talk. With that said, we can’t imagine a scenario where the game doesn’t appear on PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
Looking back, it seems more likely Call of Duty: Vanguard will also hit PS4 and Xbox One platforms along with current generation hardware. It was until Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in 2016, the series stopped releasing on the PS3 and 360 generations, three years after the launch of PS4 and Xbox One. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War It’s also cross-generation, and we expect this sequel to at least follow that trend, but will have to wait for the official reveal to know for sure.
We’re sorely lacking any gameplay footage of Call of Duty: Vanguard, and we won’t get it as soon as we hope, or even the way we usually do. Activision has confirmed that the game won’t be at this year’s E3, where the annual entry is usually first revealed with a trailer or gameplay. Instead, they will take advantage of their ongoing free-to-play access, Battlefield, to reveal the game. A similar marketing tactic was used to tease and reveal last year’s entry, Black Ops’ Cold War, also.
We knew the game would go against all the platforms so familiar to the series, going all the way back to the Second World War and that Battlefield the map will change to reflect the new game’s setting, just like when it switched to a 1980s style for Cold War. Rumors suggest season 4 could be where we start getting some new revelations in the battle royale leading up to a full trailer in the game itself.
As mentioned, we know the game will take place during World War II, but those are all the details we have to go on about the game’s single player campaign. World War II is a good foundation for Call of Duty games, with Call of Duty: WWII released just a few years ago, so it will be interesting to see what areas of the conflict are covered, as well as the perspectives we offer, in this familiar time period.
The Call of Duty formula is now complete. While we haven’t seen a second of the game yet, we feel pretty confident in saying it’s going to be another solid, satisfying, and enjoyable FPS that leans more towards the shooter’s fun side than one. little more than pure simulation. The single-player campaign is sure to feature a mix of traditional gunfights, as well as activities that focus on stealth, vehicle parts, and large parts for which the series is famous.
Each Call of Duty title tries to innovate in some way without dramatically changing the gameplay formula, such as through new motion options, so we’re excited to see how. Call of Duty: Vanguard will distinguish themselves, especially when choosing to return to a familiar context.
The only thing we know for sure is that, apparently, there will be a multiplayer component to Call of Duty: Vanguard. Regarding maps, guns, utilities and modes, nothing has been confirmed. If you follow Call of Duty regularly, or even any other FPS, there are several modes you would expect to be there in some form, such as free for all, teamfights , some sort of flag capture and possibly kill confirmation. More fun modes like gun games and anti-hunting would also be great to see a return, but for now, we’ll just trust the tried and true classics, plus maybe a New mode, at launch.
Zombies, the third mainstay in most Call of Duty titles, also return. That seems appropriate considering it was in World at War where the zombie mode originates. Expect lots of zombie exploding fun with your friends and a huge and overcomplicated array of puzzles if you want to complete the mode to its fullest.
Battlefield will continue as the battle royale mode for the franchise, tied to Call of Duty: Vanguard when it switched to World War II settings before the game came out.
Another aspect that we can almost guarantee coming is the paid DLC. Whether it’s in the form of cosmetics or standalone maps, or the more common combat system, there’s something for you to spend your money on. Call of Duty: Vanguard. We expect a season, or whatever system they will be using, to be detailed at the same time or very soon after the game is officially revealed.
Until we get that important release date, there’s no way to pre-order Call of Duty: Vanguard. For now, all we know is that the reveal will come after E3, so keep a close eye on the news and events happening in the coming weeks. Battlefield for updates when the release date may be revealed. When that happens, we’ll let you know all the details about the different versions that will surely be made available and where you can get them.
