Call of Duty: Vanguard (Series) Review
Posted: 5 weeks ago, last updated 11 days ago.
Vanguard offers similar gameplay to previously Call of Duty games like Modern Warfare. You can mount weapons on flat surfaces, open doors and perform takedowns. This year you can also blind fire from behind cover, breaking through walls and fences or climb structures to gain the element of surprise.
The multiplayer mode offers 20 maps, customisable weapon classes and a new way to select different pace of combat in these games. A new Patrol mode tasks you with capturing and holding a moving zone to earn points for your team. There will be a Zombies mode in this game that will act as a prequel to Black Ops Cold War Zombies. The game will also bring changes to the battle royale Call of Duty Warzone experience, unlocking new maps and weapons.

In the US, ESRB state: This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the roles of several members of an elite Allied fighting unit battling Nazi and Axis powers during World War II. Players recount events of the war, complete various missions, and use pistols, machine guns, sniper rifles, and explosives to kill enemy soldiers in frenetic, realistic combat. Battles are highlighted by frequent gunfire, explosions, cries of pain, and blood-splatter effects. Some sequences/cutscenes depict more intense instances of violence: a dramatic airstrike killing several soldiers, resulting in depictions of severed limbs and mutilated corpses; restrained prisoners beaten or burned alive; a soldier stabbed in the throat, close-up. A zombie mode depicts several instances of decapitation and dismemberment, as players use guns and bladed weapons to kill hordes of undead soldiers. The game includes customizable player cards that can be equipped as part of players' identity. Some of these cards depict marijuana-related items (e.g., illustrations of cannabis, characters smoking) and female figures designed with deep cleavage and/or wearing revealing outfits (e.g., lingerie). The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
