The annual series returns amidst ongoing strife and distress.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is going back to World War II, but that doesn't mean it's a story players have heard before.
It's a game that is "rooted in, but not beholden to" history. The story is something of a realistic what-if, exploring what the origin of the first special forces task group would look like as an effort of the Allies to stop a secret Nazi plot in the final stages of the war. Alongside this setting, the game features new tech that changes up the gameplay, with a team that is the fruits of an effort beginning back in 2019 to "rethink the studio for the future," per Sledgehammer Games COO Andy Wilson.
