Following the Battle for Verdansk event, Activision showed the reveal of Call of Duty: Vanguard, the next title in the first-person shooter focusing on the events of World War 2.
Players who participated in or watched the latest Call of Duty Warzone event got rewarded with a brand new trailer. In it, countries waged war against each other across Europe and the Pacific between 1939 and 1945. It gave hints as to the direction in which Activision will take its fan-favorite franchise.

Call of Duty Vanguard
Centered around World War 2, players are thrown into the Axis-Allies conflict through four major stories in the campaign. After the axis captured them, four characters will be the turning point in this war. Sledgehammer Games doubled down on graphic enhancement and realism, as well as being cross-platform and cross-progression.
Players are expecting a lot from the Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer mode. Twenty maps will be available from day one, each with its own setting and environment. Even successful game modes like 2v2 Gunfight are seeing a second generation flourish. Treyarch also participated by developing the Zombies mode, a precursor to Black Ops Cold War Zombies.
The game also keeps its connection with Warzone, bringing along a new map and a long-awaited anti-cheat system. More information about Call of Duty: Vanguard and the open beta will come in due time.
Battle of Verdansk
On the Battle for Verdansk, 32 players per lobby cooperated to intercept and destroy a weapon of importance. Transported inside a train convoy, the task force’s first goal was to set up enough explosives in a tunnel to deal sufficient damage. The train slowed down, allowing players to finally take their chances against it.
Two highly accurate turrets per seven wagons were difficult to take down. However, multiple vehicles, weapon caches, and heavy guns helped deal with the situation. After hundreds of explosions and thousands of bullets, every wagon ended up in ashes. Taking down the locomotive was the second to last objective and most players forgot to remove themselves from the situation.
Bombers filled the sky of Verdansk, unloading explosives after explosives. Some players were too late to flee and succumbed to the battle but they will rise again with the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard.
