Each of these characters become one of the original Operatives, which are the prototype of for the modern special forces soldier.
Online multiplayer will offer 20 maps available at launch. This game also offers a new Zombies game mode and is the first franchise crossover. This is being developed by Treyarch Studios and will still follow the Dark Aether story.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is powered by the next-generation engine that was first introduced in Modern Warfare. It offers optimized visual fidelity, photo realistic visuals, lifelike characters, and impressive graphical performance that enhances gameplay.
Players can transfer progression, profile and stats, and play on a different platform if they like. This feature is available on all platforms.
Aside from that, Warzone will be getting a new main map and a better PC anti-cheat system. It will also have the universal progression, which will honor previous progress on different games like Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, and now Vanguard.
The new map will be released later this year together with the full integration between Vanguard and Warzone.
