From the Call of Duty IP, the series returns once again with a new installment as 2021 flips the calendar to November. This time, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare & Call of Duty: World War II developer Sledgehammer Games returns with another title set during the Second World War, Call of Duty: Vanguard. More interesting is the game is utilizing Infinity Ward’s engine from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019) for the new title.
So, in theory, the game is anticipated to overflow players’ hard drive space as the 2019 title is the one that started off the IP’s reputation for requiring 100+ GB minimum right off the bat. However, Call of Duty: Vanguard is not a part of that trend, Instead, Sledgehammer Games reveals that the new game will ask for roughly 60 GB depending on your platform.
Recently, the developer went on to feature the roadwork laid out for Call of Duty: Vanguard in terms of post-launch content. With that, Season 1 is to begin at the start of December. You can view the full schedule in the image below:
In terms of post-launch additions prior to Season 1, Sledgehammer Games reveals that it will be delivering one map to Call of Duty: Vanguard. In that, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s Shipment is getting another makeover for the new game. The game studio previously offered a reworking for the same map on its 2017 game before. Additionally, there will be a ‘Last Days of Verdansk’ event leading up to Season 1.
Namely, that is due to there being a new map for Call of Duty: Warzone come December, Caldera. Atop of that, the standalone client is receiving a renaming as well later on. Instead, Call of Duty: Warzone will be titled ‘Call of Duty: Pacific Warzone’. For base multiplayer, new maps, modes, and additions to Zombies is also underway for then.
