Following the launch of Season 5 for Cold War and Warzone, many Call of Duty fans are now turned their attention towards the next mainline entry into the franchise, Vanguard, which will take players back to World War 2.
There have already been several mysterious Vanguard teasers sent out to Warzone creators in different regions, and even a brand new cutscene that plays for winners at the end of a match, introducing them to a sniper called Polina.
Now, it’s finally happened, the official reveal for the highly-anticipated Call of Duty: Vanguard took place in Warzone. In case you missed anything we’ve put together some of the top moments.
Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal trailer
The official Call of Duty: Vanguard trailer was revealed on August 19, through an in-game Warzone event and it’s living up to the hype.
The action packed trailer ran at just three minutes but delivered so much to the community.
From fighter pilots and tanks, to classic WWII weapons, fans are excited to see more trailers and game play for Vanguard. The game is set to release on November 5, 2021.
Warzone Event: The Battle of Verdansk
Players were told to log into Warzone early as the event was set to begin at 1:30PM ET. Squads set off into Verdansk in a team of 32 with a simple objective in mind, unlock the trailer.
When deployed, players’ objective dictated to “Destroy Armored Train” and were given a minute to set up and prepare for it. Players had RPGs, ARs, Snipers, and whatever else they needed to do damage to this train.
Once the train arrived it was time for players to unload damage to different sections of the train. This required the lobby to do 135,000 damage as a team and took around 10 minutes. Once that happened chaos ensued.
Fighter pilots in the hundreds took over the skies in Verdansk. Players then had to run for their lives, literally. Avoiding the rain of bombs, you had to get to the exfil location to survive and unlock the Vanguard trailer.
Missed out on the event? No worries, Activision announced that it will be playable all weekend long. Meaning players can still have a chance to earn the rewards for playing through the event.
