What War Does Call of Duty Vanguard Take Place In?
Vanguard will take players back to the era of World War II, focusing on the development of Special Forces across four different fronts of World War II. The story of the campaign is not meant to be a sequel to Call of Duty: WWII, released in 2016.
As seen in the trailer, the single-player campaign for the game will allow players to experience various scenarios from the perspective of four different soldiers: Sgt. Arthur Kingsley, of Britain’s 9th Parachute Battalion; Lt. Polina Petrova, of the Soviet 138th Rifle Division; Captain Wade Jackson, from the U.S.’s Scouting Squadron Six (Navy); and Second Lieutenant Lucas Riggs of Australia’s 20th Battalion.
Call of Duty Vanguard Campaign Story
As mentioned above, the Vanguard campaign evolves around Task Force One, an early iteration of a Special Forces unit tasked with the objective of preventing another Nazi uprising in the form of Operation Phoenix.
