The last time Call of Duty fans visited World War 2 they saw Private Ronald "Red" Daniels liberating a Nazi concentration before returning home. Going into Thursday's reveal, fans wondered whether Call of Duty: Vanguard would revisit Private Daniels, create a new World War 2 campaign, or ditch the mode altogether in favor of enhanced multiplayer and Zombies. Coming out of the reveal, fans' questions have finally been answered.
Will Call of Duty Vangaurd have a campaign?
Yes, Activision and Sledgehammer Games have confirmed that Vanguard will have a new World War 2-based campaign. The Vanguard reveal trailer showcased some elements of the campaign, including glimpses of the four characters that will be playable in the campaign.
Vanguard's campaign will be markedly different from the 2017 Call of Duty: World War 2 campaign. The latter took place entirely in the European theater of World War 2 and focused solely on a squad from the 1st Infantry Division. Vanguard will showcase much more of the war, as it will visit the four primary theaters of World War 2: the Eastern Front, North Africa, the Pacific and the Western Front.
The trailer also revealed that Vanguard's campaign will depict some pivotal points of the war. Glimpses were scene of Sledgehammer Games' take on the crucial Battle of Midway and Battle of Stalingrad. Both of these campaigns helped to turn the tide of the war and see the Allies claim victory.
Players will have to wait until Nov. 5 before they enlist with the Allies, but they have at least they have a campaign to look forward to.
