Unusually, the console version of Vanguard is available at midnight local time outside of the Americas. However, the PC version is locked to be available at the same time globally.

RELEASE DATE - When does Vanguard drop?

Call of Duty Vanguard is going to launch on November 5th - however, we don't have any specific times for those of you out there who are preloading the new Call of Duty game.


A global campaign is going to release alongside the largest multiplayer launch in Call of Duty's history and a new Zombies experience that combines the best of Outbreak, round-based Zombies, and more.

It's going to be an unmissable experience that has never looked better.

WARZONE CONTENT - What about integration?

Here's the fun thing - Warzone's Season Six isn't due to end on November 5th. This means we're not going to be getting Vanguard integration into Warzone from November 5th.


It's a shame, but we're going to have to wait for the new Anti-Cheat system and the Pacific Theatre map. It'll only be a couple of weeks, but that's still a long time when the new Call of Duty title will be sitting right there!

NEW ISLAND WHO DIS? - Warzone is changing the scenery soon

Thankfully, it looks like the Visions of Verdansk event is going to see Verdansk '84 off with a bang. Expect a random selection of in-game events to take place during this event with some exciting rewards on offer. It should be worth checking out even if we can't use Lucas Riggs in Verdansk yet!
