On a more serious note, Sledgehammer says they are fixing those things and taking a “thorough pass at weapon balancing, audio mixing, and visibility.” They are also working on squashing bugs, improving features, and refining the maps and modes ahead of the game’s launch.
Vanguard’s beta was plagued with hackers
There were reports of hackers making their way into Vanguard’s beta and were ruining the experience for those who wanted to try an honest hand at the game. Sledgehammer, as well as Activision, would want to address this issue and perhaps implement a strong anti-cheat in the game.
Call of Duty: Vanguard game modes, new zombies experience, and more
COD: Vanguard’s campaign will take players to four fronts of World War II- Eastern Front, Western Front, Pacific, and North Africa. With an arsenal of weapons, diverse environments, and advanced features, lots of action is promised!
The game’s multiplayer mode will include 20 maps at launch and will also have a zombies mode developed by Treyarch.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is up for pre-order and scheduled to release on November 5, 2021, for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC (via battle.net).
