Call of Duty: Vanguard will come with a multiplayer mode with a more tactical approach, 20 maps available, and a new patrol mode.
Activision’s upcoming title, Call of Duty: Vanguard, will be inspired by the Second World War, as it did in the first three iterations of the franchise. Today, the developer in charge of this year’s new Call of Duty edition detailed the key elements of its multiplayer mode.
20 maps with realistic recreations.
This year, it will include 20 maps to begin with, 16 of which are intended for the standard six-vs.-six clashes in the saga’s signature modes like Hot Spot or Search and Destroy.
Some of these maps are genuine places that have been scanned and recreated in this new Call of Duty to increase immersion in the game, with weather effects and improved lighting complementing this accurate reproduction.
One of the most intriguing aspects of Vanguard will be a new multiplayer mode called Patrol, in which we will have to move in time with a specific point that will appear on the ground and with which we will go through the entire scenario “patrolling” while defending ourselves from ambushes and enemy attacks.
A more tactical game strategy.
Another pillar of the new player appears to be a more tactical approach, similar to Modern Warfare, which was created by Infinity Ward in 2019.
Furthermore, the shooting mechanics evolve, with the ability to mount the weapon on a surface such as a railing or a window frame for stability, and even raise it above a cover and shoot blindly without the enemy seeing us, with suppressive fire that our teammates can use to advance or perform other actions.
12 operators available.
Vanguard will have a total of 12 operators with extremely varied backgrounds at launch, and we will learn more about them as we advance with them in multiplayer, as well as earning cosmetic prizes that are closely connected to the history of the operators with whom we level up.
Vanguard will have a PC-optimized edition.
This year, Beenox is in charge of developing the PC version of Call of Duty, which will include limitless frames per second, a plethora of customization choices, support for ultra-panoramic monitors, new graphics settings that we can tweak, and NVIDIA Reflex technology to decrease latency. There are also settings for reducing motion sickness and improving text readability.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will be available on the Xbox One, the Xbox X Series X|S, the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation 5, and the PC.
