Activision prepares for one of the biggest Call of Duty launches ever this week

Call of Duty fans are going to be in for a good deal of content this year, with both the launch of the new Vanguard game, and it’s first season of DLC.

Brace yourself

There is a ton of stuff coming for Call of Duty fans to sink their teeth into, here in 2021. This week sees the launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard, which will offer up what sounds like a pretty cool new campaign that will showcase WWII-era action in a new way.

On top of that though, there’s an all-new zombies experience, with an all-new storyline. Then there’s the gigantic new multiplayer, which will of course also tie-into Warzone. Oh, and you won’t have to wait for more content either, as the flow starts up almost immediately.

Vanguard Day One Content Includes:

  • Cinematic single-player Campaign featuring a multinational group of heroes including Arthur Kingsley, Polina Petrova, Wade Jackson, Lucas Riggs, Richard Webb and many others united in the fight against evil
  • Multiplayer – fight enemy Operators across 20 maps, plenty of modes including the multi-arena survival tournament Champion Hill, and other features at launch including Combat Pacing, Hardcore Playlists and Private Matches
  • Zombies – a franchise-first crossover into the Dark Aether with a new storyline entitled “Der Anfang”
  • 12 Task Force Operators at launch, ready to fight in Multiplayer/Zombies and prepared to deploy later in Warzone upon Vanguard’s integration in Season One
  •  More than three dozen weapons at launch, and most can be completely overhauled in a revamped Gunsmith and outfitted with up to 10 attachments
  • New XP systems and tons of challenges to reward players
  • RICHOCHET Anti-Cheat begins its implementation with server-side initiatives

Pre-season Content Includes:

  • Fan-favorite Multiplayer map Shipment returns November 17
  • Access to free Vanguard Tiers on the Black Ops Cold War Season Six Battle Pass System continues
  • Operation: Flashback begins in Warzone on November 18 – an encore limited-time mode for Verdansk, celebrating its past 18 months of hosting over 100 million players strong in Warzone. Two unique awards will be up for grabs.
  • On November 24, fans can get intel on Vanguard’s new Warzone map, based in the Pacific on an entirely new island called Caldera, via Warzone and Vanguard limited-time multiplayer challenges entitled “Secrets of the Pacific”
  • On November 30 and December 1, players can see what happens to Verdansk before Warzone goes dark to prepare for Caldera and Season One

Want more? Well good, because there’s already a healthy dose of talk about the first season of post-launch DLC. Season 1 kicks off on December 2nd, and is pretty loaded.

Season One Begins December 2; Content Includes:
