For years, the world has endured the largest and deadliest war ever seen, but the tides of World War II are finally turning.
Now a select few must rise to finish the job and change the landscape of the war for good.
The critically-acclaimed Call of Duty franchise returns with Call of Duty: Vanguard, in which players will experience global combat through the eyes of heroes of World War II and the fateful events that brought them together. Developed by Sledgehammer Games, Vanguard is a deeply engaging narrative, featuring a select group of soldiers from different countries and backgrounds who rise together to meet the world’s gravest threat, change the fortunes of the war and set the table for what we know today as special forces combat.
Through the remarkable journey of these steeled soldiers, players will experience influential battles of World War II as they fight for victory across multiple theatres of war – the Eastern and Western Fronts of Europe, the Pacific and North Africa.
This is their story. This is Call of Duty: Vanguard.
Dogfight over the Pacific, airdrop over France, defend Stalingrad with a sniper’s precision and blast through advancing forces in North Africa. The single-player campaign will immerse you in a deeply engaging narrative experience featuring combat on an unparalleled global scale.
Become the vanguard of the changing face of war as you make your mark across Call of Duty’s signature core gunplay and multiplayer experience featuring a massive launch day offering of 20 maps including 16 built for core Multiplayer.
Continue the Dark Aether storyline and prove your mettle as you try to survive the relentless onslaught of the undead in a chilling new Zombies experience, developed by Treyarch.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will usher in a new and unparalleled Call of Duty: Warzone integration post launch, and feature cross-platform play, cross-progression and cross-generation play.

In Call of Duty: Vanguard, a game where your lead-spitting WWII loadouts are critical in the fight for the future of the free world, the DualSense’s adaptive triggers apply varying degrees of feedback to help create the feeling of weight on the trigger, which is applied differently for different weapons, producing a more accurate and realistic experience with each one.
So whether you’re lining up targets with your marksman rifle, or blasting through doors and walls in Vanguard's new reactive environments with your LMG, you’ll be able to feel the power and heft of your weapon.
Across the game’s multiple fronts of WWII, there will be moments that the explosive impact of combat is on full display, and with the help of haptic feedback in the DualSense you will feel the action that’s happening around you pulse through your hands.
So whether you’re feeling the fast, rolling jolts as you’re handling your assault rifle, or experiencing the impacts of the bursts and debris around you when enemy fire is tearing through your cover, you will be immersed in the moment.
The kinetic sounds of war are present throughout Call of Duty: Vanguard, and already tense moments are heightened with the help of the enveloping nature of 3D audio that PlayStation 5 supports.
From the intricate noises of gunfire and shrapnel, to the more encompassing sounds of the Luftwaffe raining down its fury, the chaos of the moment will be on full display, and all around you.
Jump into Campaign missions and streamline your access to Multiplayer and Zombies by utilizing Activities for Call of Duty: Vanguard, which can be found on PlayStation 5’s dashboard.
There’s no need to delay as you’re fighting to rise on every front to change the fortunes of the war for good.
