The gameplay of the new Call of Duty: Vanguard compared to other titles in the franchise, this one uses the same graphics engine as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released in 2019, and this has been modified in order to include better visual effects. New types of smoke, particles and ambient lights have been added to give a greater sense of realism.
The new gameplay therefore presents improvements in relation to previous games in the franchise. It will now be possible to destroy walls and other objects by shooting at them and, according to the developers, this will help a lot in multiplayer matches. Some of the game’s scenes will also be interactive, meaning they will force players to quickly press one or more buttons to complete them. In terms of the movement of characters, this is now more fluid and the power of weapons is more effective so that the impact of certain projectiles can throw enemies at a short distance.
Focusing now more on Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer itself, this one will feature no less than 20 multiplayer maps at its November 5 release, all of which are based on the battlegrounds where the conflict took place. Scenarios will react to players’ actions, with new areas appearing during matches and others disappearing as the fight unfolds.
The new Call of Duty: Vanguard will have a more tactical and relaxed online multiplayer experience compared to other titles in the series. Weapon customization possibilities are increased through the returning Gunsmith mode and there will be different types of special ammunition.
In addition to this, some new game modes for the franchise were also highlighted, these being Champion Hill and Patrol. These modes promise to greatly innovate the way to play Call of Duty franchise titles and are excellent additions to the title.
Another novelty is the Combat Pacing system. This system will offer three options to players that they will be able to choose while they are waiting for a game or match. The mode includes lobbies identical to the traditional Call of Duty experience and will always be 6 against 6 players.
Assault mode promises to be the most balanced multiplayer option, while Blitz will include more players and increased combat intensity. If they can’t choose, players will have an option that allows them to play in all three rhythms.
Call of Duty: Vanguard will also have a new Clans system that brings elements of the regiments system from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, released in 2019. This system being back is something that many fans of the title have been waiting for, especially the one released in 2019.
