New info on the Call of Duty Vanguard campaign

Activision has announced new details on the Call of Duty Vanguard story campaign. The campaign begins just before the end of World War II.

The focus of the plot is a group of individual fighters with strong characters who emerge as war heroes from their very different fates. The playable heroes come together as a team in the course of the story in order to thwart the plans of Nazi officer Hermann Wenzel Freisinger.

After a rapid start, the player is already deep in soldiers’ boots and the turmoil of World War II. He is part of the worldwide operating “Einsatzgruppe 1”, which consists of four other specialists: explosives expert Lucas Riggs in North Africa, pilot Wade Jackson in the Pacific, sniper Polina Petrova on the Eastern Front and her leader Arthur Kingsley as part of the British parachute battalion. They act separately at first, but at the climax they team up to infiltrate a heavily fortified submarine base and steal information about the mysterious “Phoenix” project.

The new story trailer atmospherically shows how individual, outstanding soldiers can turn the tide of a war.

David Swenson, Campaign Creative Director of Vanguard, provides even more details about Vanguard:

We found the setting for these epic battles in various locations, but we also focused on the personal stories of those who fought in World War II. These are the stories we want to tell. A couple of us sat together to rewrite the mission and it turned out in the course of development that each of us somehow held one of the characters. We had almost played out our roles as we progressed through the level. Ultimately, it made the whole script a lot more believable and stronger.
