What to Expect at the Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer Reveal
As the embedded tweet above indicates, Sledgehammer Games is explicitly set to share news about Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer maps, modes, weapons, features, and more. Thanks to a blog post from Sledgehammer Games about upcoming beta content, it seems fair to assume that maps like Champion Hill, Hotel Royal, Gavutu, Red Star, and Eagle's Nest might make an appearance at the event today alongside new game mode Patrol. Patrol, based on the Hardpoint mode, is described as an "objective-based mode" that includes "a scoring zone in near-constant motion." Essentially, players will constantly need to be moving around if they are looking to earn the most points.
As for features, Sledgehammer Games previously noted Combat Pacing will be in the beta. Combat Pacing essentially allows players to determine just how deep in the muck they want to get with Tactical, Assault, and Blitz options. The number of players in these lobbies will vary depending on the map size and Combat Pacing specifically selected with Tactical being the classic experience while Blitz is for "high-action lobbies where the intensity is cranked up to frenetic levels."
It is worth stating that while the various Call of Duty studios were not specifically named as part of the California lawsuit against Activision Blizzard over sexual harassment and discrimination against women, the overall company continues to deal with the very public fallout from it. As noted above, the Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer reveal is set to take place later today, September 7th, at 10AM PT/1PM ET. Call of Duty: Vanguard itself is set to release for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net on November 5th.
