The new Call of Duty: Vanguard delves into the origins of special forces across four major theatres of World War II. Through a gripping single-player story, 20 multiplayer maps, and an all-new Zombies experience exploring the existing story canon, players will be on the edge of their seats.

The single-player campaign, developed by Sledgehammer Games, takes players on the journey of ordinary soldiers from diverse backgrounds as they take on the horrors of war. Multiplayer in Call Of Duty: Vanguard has received great attention, with 20 maps, 12 operators, and over 30 weapons. There are new ways to play with the Combat Pacing system and the multi-arena survival Champion Hill mode. All these new additions can be shared by all thanks to unified progression and cross-play across next-generation and current-generation systems.

Not only are players treated with a plethora of options, but Season One of Call of Duty: Vanguard will bring a whole new map called Caldera to the Call of Duty: Warzone experience. The all-new introduction of a Zombies crossover also expands on the Dark Aether storyline from Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War. Along with these free additions, the RICOCHET Anti-Cheat initiative will aim to hinder cheating by monitoring analytics, strengthening account security and much more.

“Vanguard launch is just the beginning. This new release marks the start of unprecedented breadth and depth amazing content experiences to Call of Duty players going forward,” said Johanna Faries, General Manager, Call of Duty, Activision.

To celebrate the launch of the game, MMA champ Alex Volkanovski; Aria-nominated hip-hop artist Youngn Lipz; celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer; and pro streamer, Fresh, challenged each other to test their skills in making the ultimate Call of Duty squad.
