Call of Duty: Vanguard released
The shooter franchise returns to WWII for latest entry
Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games have announced the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
In Vanguard, players will experience the origins of Special Forces fighting across four major theaters of World War II. Multiplayer features 20 maps, 12 Operators and over three dozen Weapons in the revamped Gunsmith all starting day one. Vanguard multiplayer delivers new ways to play with the Combat Pacing system and the Champion Hill mode. Vanguard also brings a franchise-first Zombies crossover developed by Treyarch, expanding upon the Dark Aether storyline that players were introduced to in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.
DLC Season One will bring a brand-new map, Caldera, to the free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone, along with new gameplay experiences. Operator, Weapon, and Battle Pass progression will also be synchronized across Vanguard, Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare when Season One begins on December 2.
Releasing alongside Vanguard, the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative is a multifaceted approach to combat cheating, featuring new server-side tools that monitor analytics to identify cheating, enhanced investigation processes to stamp out cheaters, updates to strengthen account security, and more. RICOCHET Anti-Cheat’s back-end anti-cheat security features will also come later this year with the launch of Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific map on PC.
Vanguard features unified progression and supports cross-play across next-generation and current-generation systems.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net.
