Call of Duty Vanguard launches today for all major consoles, ushering in yet another huge win for Activision and the CoD franchise overall.
While not the highest-scoring entry in the series history, Vanguard is certainly doing its part to pull its weight. Fans and critics alike are in agreement that this is another solid entry in the long-running series, with things like the campaign mode providing a classic cinematic feel being one of the highlights. While the single-player is all well and good, we all know the bread-and-butter here is the multiplayer modes. Warzone is still alive and kicking with a huge player base, but Vanguard provides a welcome respite for something a little different. Coming off a spooky season like Halloween is the perfect time to roll out a ton of zombie-killing fun, with the horrors of the Nazi regime of World War II as a backdrop. Couple that with great game-play balance, killer sounds and graphics, Vanguard is sure to be a hit this Christmas with big and little kids alike (we’re looking at you dad).
