Stars like Kevin Spacey have collaborated with the game, and the fandom is massive. It is a league in its own right, a legend of a game franchise undoubtedly.
The recent addition to the Call of Duty game is “Call of Duty: Vanguard''. The game was introduced during Warzone’s recent event and the game has been created by Sledgehammer Games developing studio. The game nearly took three years to develop as per the sources. Initially it was to be released in 2020, but for some reasons the release was delayed. This time Call of Duty is set to take us back into time, to the most impactful war that mankind has ever had, that is, World War 2. The trench war is set to get you excited and shuffling in your chairs to get that perfect position to play the game and win. The event revealed that the game will be released on November 5th of this year. It will be available on all major consoles such as the PS4, PS5, Xbox One and more as well as on the PC.
Vanguard was revealed officially during a gameplay presentation that showed inside the game glimpses. It showed how several players ganged together in order to take down a train that was armoured. Right after they successfully destroy it, the sky starts getting full of bombs being dropped on them via the bombers that were used during World War II.
In Call of Duty: Vanguard, the gamers get to choose among four nations to fight for as four different characters. They are Seargent Arthur Kingsley, who fights for Great Britain; Lieutenant Polina Petrova from Russia; Lieutenant Wade from The USA and Private Lucas Riggs for Australia. On choosing the character, you get to their specific war-front.
The game will also come with a multiplayer option, just like many of its predecessors, with a different gaming mode out of which, one even allows you to kill or get killed in a single bullet. There is the usual multiplayer mode and some Blitz games. In Blitz games, several players are left in a confined and small map for a high intensity face-off against each other.
Call of Duty: Vanguard comes with a total of twenty map options. All these are sure to be great, and there are 16 map options in the game that allow for only a six vs six matchup. There is a Champion Hill named multiplayer gaming mode as well in the game. In this one, you can observe a combination of Call of Duty: Warzone and the two versus 2 gunfights. This is one of the modes that players wait eagerly to try out. The Zombie mode will be similar to the other previous versions of Call of Duty, and this time the zombie mode is being developed by Treyarch.
The trailer for the game is already out and can be viewed on YouTube and other similar streaming platforms as well as the official website of Activision. The trailer is just a teaser for now, but the full trailer should come out soon enough, so stay tuned.
Beta Vanguard and Pre-Orders
Vanguard will also release a beta version soon enough, probably before the original game rolls out. The beta version is speculated to be available to those who have or will pre-order the game on time. The beta allows the developers to have an insight into how the game would work in the market and on the players’ computers and consoles in real-time scenarios. They will be able to point out the bugs or any other technical glitches, before the original game is released, and develop patches accordingly.
The patches keep rolling out for most games even after the game has been released officially, however, those are to provide some basic tweaks. The DLCs that we are expecting from Vanguard are also of high quality which can level up to the benchmark that the game has already set in our minds through the glimpses.
The initial beta testing will be available for only the PlayStation consoles, PS4 and PS5 respectively. Sledgehammer Games are also providing additional things when you pre-order the game.
The Free Loot in the Warzone Event: Verdansk Battle
There are some free Loots and rewards that are available for the buyers to get with Call of Duty Vanguard when they participate in the in-game event or pre-order it. The buyers get a Night Raid Blueprint for a Mastercraft Weapon. The weapon can be used in the Black Ops Cold War as well as Call of Duty: Warzone. Then there is an Arthur Kingsley skin and some Frontline Weapon Pack that the buyers will get.
Through Warzone’s “Battle of Verdansk” event on the 19th of August, Activision had also released a free loot offer to get Double XP and Weapon XP as well as a Double Battle Pass XP.
