Call of Duty: Vanguard Multiplayer Reveal and Open Beta Details

Become the original Special Forces in Vanguard’s intense, adrenaline-fueled Multiplayer.

From the map and mode offerings on day one, to advanced weapon customisation, to all-new social and Combat Pacing features, and a deeper focus on Operators, Vanguard’s Multiplayer is a deeply connected ecosystem that details the origins of Special Forces.

As detailed through an in-depth Multiplayer Reveal led by members of the Sledgehammer Games development team, Call of Duty: Vanguard will put you in the shoes of a global force of Operators in a down-the-barrel experience of brute force weaponry, all built on an engine developed to power 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
