For annual entry in Call of Duty franchise, upcoming 2021 first-person shooter title Call of Duty: Vanguard from developer Sledgehammer Games and publisher Activision is going back to series roots and focuses on events of World War II.

Activision and Sledgehammer Games has recently wrapped up Open Beta test for Vanguard on all available platforms. A brand-new trailer has been released today, highlighting key-moments from campaign story for newest Call of Duty.


Special Forces heroes have assembled in Call of Duty: Vanguard story trailer to take down Nazi forces of WWII.





Nearly a month ahead of release, Sledgehammer takes players to theaters of World War II and introduces everyone to Task Force One. These founders of Special Forces have joined together to repel all efforts of Nazi Germany in WW2.

Latest trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard delves into its campaign premise and backstory of four playable characters. Sledgehammer Games may have taken an alternate history approach for Vanguard story and has changed few details.


Activision only showed-off a campaign gameplay demo for Vanguard at Gamescom 2021 event featuring Soviet sniper Lt. Polina Petrova, who takes it upon herself to go up against soldiers of Nazi invading regime and made it out alone.

Allied heroes are busy fighting Nazi forces across the globe during World War II as they attempt to establish a Fourth Reich. Sledgehammer took inspiration from real-life soldiers to portray the heroes of Vanguard to win a historical battle.


Vanguard is seemingly shying off from depicting many true events and chose to go with a not-so direct adaptation of WWII. For example, dev team has switched up "Swastika" sign in several cases with "Iron Cross" to avoid controversy.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is scheduled to release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S platforms on November 2021. At launch, Raven Software will roll out new anti-cheat system to combat cheats and hackers.
