Call of Duty: Vanguard officially announced, to be revealed in Warzone
Activision has released a teaser trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard. This is the official announcement of the next instalment in the series. On Aug. 19, players will have a chance to see the Call of Duty 2015 game during an exclusive event in Call of Duty Warzone called the Battle of Verdansk.
The first trailer for Call of Duty – Vanguard opens in a sequence of battles that focuses on World War II. A sniper’s nest appears to be near Russia, a desert battleground, a German forest and a beach littered by destroyed aircraft. Each area has a face in it, sometimes with a name (Petrova Cyrillic, Sergeant. Kingsley), hinting at characters that will appear in the game. These characters could also be the same as the official art of the game at the end.
The trailer featuring each of these battlefields also seems to imply that the game will likely take place in all four theatres of WWII: the Eastern Front, the Western Front, North Africa, and the Pacific — something Activision and the Call of Duty team have been teasing for the last several days.
It seems that Activision and developer Sledgehammer Games will announce more information about the game on Aug. 19 at 1:30 p.m. Warzone. This event will likely be similar to previous events in the Call of Duty battle royale video game. You’ll want to log in before the start time so you can get in. Activision will likely reveal more details about the event before it begins on Thursday, although it is unclear what it will be.
Activision Blizzard, the publisher of Call of Duty, was facing a wide range of allegations. It is accused of creating a hostile work environment for women, paying them less and subjecting them to sexual harassment. In July, the lawsuit by California’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing also claims that perpetrators are not effectively punished.
