Call of Duty: Vangurad
The most anticipated title of the show is probably Call of Duty: Vanguard. Many players have been waiting for the show to see the gameplay trailer.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be released on 5th of November as leakers have already spread on internet. This weekend PlayStation alpha will be live in champion hill mode. Vanguard is described as a totally new take on WW2. WW2 had huge battles and battlefields, and it will be the same for Vanguard, too. But this time the game will be evolving around real people who fought in World War 2. So characters are diverse people from all around the globe. Call of Duty: Vanguard will be telling the stories of people who were in original Special Forces during the war, the birth of Special Forces.
There will be 20 maps where players can play with their favourite agents, including Polina, one of the deadliest snipers in history. The gameplay footage that has been shown in the show was a part of the Polina’s story. The game starts with Polina and her team on their first special forces mission going in to Berlin right at the end of the war.
The gameplay footage shown in the Opening Night Live was captured in game engine. Here is the gameplay video, enjoy:
