Call of Duty: Vanguard is an upcoming 2021 first-person shooter video game developed by Sledgehammer Games and published by Activision. It is scheduled to be released worldwide on November 5th, 2021, for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and S. It serves as the eighteenth instalment in the overall Call of Duty series. The game establishes a storyline featuring the birth of the special forces to face an emerging threat at the end of the war during various theatres of World War II across the globe.

An open beta version of the multiplayer was also made available for all platforms in September 2021, presenting a selection of five maps and traditional multiplayer playlists, such as Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed and Search and Destroy with the newly introduced Patrol and Champion Hill game modes. Those players who reach Level 20 in beta will receive an unique StG 44 weapon blueprint available to use in Vanguard at launch and in Warzone at a later date.

I loaded up the multiplayer beta on September 11th, 2021 and despite some very obvious issues (you will see and we discuss them during the stream), I thoroughly enjoyed the gameplay and went on to reach Level 20 in my spare time. Very much looking forward to November 5th!
