Before we were all transported to explosive battles within the Modern Warfare and Black Ops series spin-offs, the Call of Duty franchise focused on the various battle theaters that erupted during World War II. In 2021, developer Sledgehammer Games has gone back to that thematic formula to deliver a brand new experience for the Call of Duty faithful with the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard. The excitement for this entry is palpable - the rich content suite on offer for this new annual Call of Duty game can be pointed to as the sole reason for that unrelenting hype. Before Call of Duty: Vanguard finally arrives on November 5 for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net, allow us to break down all the important details about the game that you must know before going in.
Everything You Need to Know About 'Call of Duty: Vanguard'
If you’ve been catching dubs in Warzone for the longest time now and hope your progress carries over once you hop into Call of Duty: Vanguard, then you have nothing to worry about. Your shared progress will come into play when you hop into the new WWII-inspired Warzone map “Caldera,” which is said to be just as massive as the “Verdansk” map. With this new map, a name change will also be implemented - Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific. This evolution of Warzone will also bring with it a wealth of WWII firearms and a new anti-cheat system called “Ricochet.” Keep in mind that November 30 will probably mark the end of the current map through the “Last Days of Verdanks” limited-time event.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is kicking things off right with a batch of meaningful content for its very first season. We’re even getting some worthwhile preseason content in the form of a remastered classic map (“Shipment”) and The Last Days of Verdansk limited-time event & modes. That content will arrive at an unannounced date sometime in November. On December 2, players will be introduced to new maps & modes, new weapons & gear, and new zombies updates. On that date, players can also look forward to the massive Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific update.
