Game overview

Rise on every front in the latest instalment of the critically-acclaimed Call of Duty franchise.

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.
