What To Expect At Call Of Duty: Vanguard Reveal Event
The big event will serve as the proper introduction to Vanguard’s multiplayer package. One of the modes, Champion Hill, was playable during an alpha test for PlayStation users in August, but the event on Tuesday promises more details across the board for Vanguard’s multiplayer.
In terms of what we know already, Activision has said Vanguard will have 20 multiplayer maps at launch, which is the most in the history of the Call of Duty franchise.
Whether or not today’s livestream touches on the battle royale game Warzone remains to be seen. As announced previously, Warzone is getting a new map later this year, presumably around the time that Vanguard launches in November. Activision is also launching new anti-cheat software for Warzone to help get rid of cheaters.
For many, multiplayer is the bread and butter of the Call of Duty series, so expectations are high for Activision to deliver the goods during the Vanguard reveal today. The game runs on the Modern Warfare engine, which also powers Warzone. This is a big deal because 2020’s Black Ops Cold War used a different engine.
Following the multiplayer reveal today, Activision will host a PlayStation-exclusive beta test September 10-13 for people who preorder Vanguard. Open betas for everyone, across all platforms and regardless of preorder status, will take place later in the month.
The reveal of Vanguard’s multiplayer and the beta tests are happening at the same time as a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, in which the state of California alleges a culture of sexual harassment and discrimination against women.
