The critically-acclaimed Call of Duty® franchise returns with Call of Duty®: Vanguard, in which players will experience global combat through the eyes of heroes of World War II and the fateful events that brought them together. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Vanguard is a deeply engaging narrative, featuring a select group of soldiers from different countries and backgrounds who rise together to meet the world’s gravest threat, change the fortunes of the war, and set the table for what we know today as special forces combat.
Through the remarkable journey of these steeled soldiers, players will experience influential battles of World War II as they fight for victory across multiple theaters of war – the Eastern and Western Fronts of Europe, the Pacific, and North Africa. Whether dogfighting over the Midway Islands, defending Stalingrad with a sniper’s precision, airdropping over France, or blasting through advancing forces in North Africa, the Call of Duty: Vanguard campaign will immerse players in a deeply engaging and gripping character-driven narrative experience featuring combat on an unparalleled global scale, while also telling the harrowing stories of those who turned the tides of war and changed history forever.
In addition to the campaign, the relentless adversity of global warfare pushes the action forward even more in an epic package of content, including the game’s thrilling multiplayer and cooperative modes. Players will become the vanguards of the changing face of war as they make their mark across Call of Duty’s signature core gunplay and multiplayer experience. Players will also be able to prove their mettle as they try to survive the relentless onslaught of the undead in a chilling new Zombies experience, developed by Treyarch Studios.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will also usher in a new and unparalleled Call of Duty®: Warzone™ integration post launch, and feature cross-play, cross-progression, cross-generation play, in addition to a massive calendar of free post-launch content that adds in new multiplayer maps, modes, seasonal events, community celebrations and more.
History was written in these fronts. It was won with these tactics. It was preserved by these heroes. It’s time to experience the terrors and triumphs through their eyes and rise to the greatest challenge the world has ever known. It’s time to rise on every front.
