Sledgehammer Games has announced the next Call of Duty with the reveal of Vanguard. The game will launch in November. Set in the course of World War II, the shooter will feature a single-player campaign that is “historically inspired” as effectively as a multiplayer mode, and integration with Call of Duty: Zombies and Warzone.
The single-player campaign types the core of Vanguard. It focuses on the particular forces’ origin and the telling will be from various points of view. Sci-fi writer Tochi Onyebuchi is working on the story, in addition to Sledghammer’s narrative group.
According to Sledgehammer, the narrative will cover untold stories of Task Force One’s multinational heroes who changed history and set the stage for the particular forces. It will also feature characters drawn from actual-world personalities, which includes Lt. Polina Petrova or Lady Death, based on Soviet Union sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko.
There will also be multiplayer with 20 maps outdoors of the campaign. The game modes will include things like Champion Hill exactly where players can duel solo or in two- or 3-member squads. The Zombies mode, created by Black Ops studio Treyarch, will connect with Black Ops Cold War’ preceding undead story.
Raven Software is simultaneously creating a Vanguard map for Warzone, the battle royale spinoff. The new map will be launched later this year and will be accompanied by a new anti-cheat method. The crossover has been described as a new metaverse that connects Vanguard, Modern Warfare, and Black Ops Cold War.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will launch on November 5 and be readily available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Computer.
The announcement follows Activision Blizzard, Sledgehammer’s parent firm, coming below fire for sexual harassment following a lawsuit that was filed by California. Since then, personnel have staged walkouts whilst a number of higher-profile developers, which includes President J. Allen Brack, have left the studio.
