Mere hours after the PlayStation Store leaked when Call of Duty: Vanguard would be formally released to the public, Activision has now released the first official trailer for the next entry in the long-running shooter franchise. Although this trailer in question doesn’t feature any gameplay footage from Vanguard, it does introduce the setting and characters that will be appearing in the experience.
Seen at the top of the page, this initial trailer for Call of Duty: Vanguard establishes in an official capacity that the series will once again be venturing back to World War II. The video itself shows off a number of different war-torn battlefields. Each of these locations also contain facial outlines of a handful of different characters, seemingly suggesting that the campaign will be one that lets players control more than one protagonist. The trailer then comes to a conclusion with the words “See Them Rise” before showing off the game’s splash art and first official logo reveal for Call of Duty: Vanguard.
