Massive Call of Duty Vanguard Leaks Ahead of Reveal
Call of Duty Vanguard is on the way, and a major series of leaks have been revealed that are worth discussing. Back in March, we revealed that the potential name was CoD WW2: Vanguard, and it looks like Vanguard is the real deal. It’s still very much a WW2-era game and thanks to data miners and leakers, we’ve seen quite a few new leaks about the upcoming Call of Duty Vanguard. This information came through the Black Ops Cold War and Warzone Season 5 Update information. What do we know so far?
Potential Important Dates and Bundles:
Now, these dates might not be legit, but thanks to Tom Henderson – who has a positive track record of reveals, has some key dates, thanks to Modern Warzone. According to Henderson, Vanguard will be revealed on the first day of CDL Champs and will have a trio of playtest periods. Here are the dates that have been revealed:
- Reveal: 8/19/2021
- Alpha: 8/27 – 8/29
- PlayStation Beta: 9/10 – 9/12
- Beta For All: 9/16 – 9/20
- Release: 11/5
- Warzone Season 1: 11/23
This could change, but if true, we have a very clear idea of what is going on, release-date wise for Call of Duty Vanguard. This is certainly huge though. At first, we weren’t sure what would become of Warzone in Call of Duty Vanguard, but the leaks show it’s definitely going to go down. Will we see more WWII-inspired weaponry in the Vanguard Warzone? We sure hope so. Time will tell on that one.
There are a few bundles for Call of Duty Vanguard, revealed by Earthbound on Twitter. You can find the images of all three bundles on Imgur. Each of the bundles comes with their own perks and bonuses. Among the Call of Duty Vanguard leaks was a file that showed the bonus content for the Ultimate Edition. What can you get for your money if you shell out for the biggest, baddest edition?
- Lucas – Operator Skin
- Polina – Operator Skin
- Wade – Operator Skin
- Breacher – Assault Rifle
- Snowstorm – Marksman Rifle
- Thunderhead – Submachine Gun
- Night Raid Mastercraft
- Frontline Weapons Pack
- Exclusive Emblem
- Double XP Tokens
- Open Beta Early Access
You can also see these in the third image on the Imgur link. It’s also important to note that the Night Raid Mastercraft weapon will be instantly available in Black Ops COld War and Warzone. It also suggests that Arthur Kingsley (Operator) will be received at a later date for use in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
There were other bundles to acquire too. One was listed as the “Cross Gen Bundle Download”, which includes the Frontline Weapons Pack, Double XP Tokens, Night Raid Mastercraft, and the Open Beta Early Access. The Digital Download pack seems to be the exact same. However, that Ultimate BUndle is pretty huge if you like new weapons and skins. We’ll just have to see if any of them wind up being p2w weapons.
We also know that purchasing one of the special editions of Vanguard will give you early access to the Open Beta period, which is interesting. We do have the above dates, but we don’t know how early the access will be, or even if the dates are legit. Call of Duty Vanguard is starting to shape up though, and as a fan of WWII films and games, this writer is curious to see how it shapes up. Hopefully, it doesn’t have loot boxes that other players can watch you open, like in CoD: WWII.
