Now Playing: Call of Duty Vanguard - Everything We Know

This year's all-digital Gamescom event takes place next week, and Activision is among the companies confirmed to attend the show, making it a likely bet that we'll see more there.

What we do already know about Vanguard's campaign is that it focuses on the "interweaving story of multinational heroes" who make up Task Force One. The four main characters are:

  • Private Lucas Riggs, 20th Battalion, Australian 9th Infantry Division, British Eighth Army.
  • Sergeant Arthur Kingsley of the 9th Parachute Battalion, British Army.
  • Lieutenant Wade Jackson, Scouting Squadron Six, United States Navy.
  • Lieutenant Polina Petrova of the 138th Rifle Division, Red Army.

Each of the characters is playable, and the story will bounce between four theaters of WWII. Players will take part in dogfighting over the Midway island, defending Stalingrad as a sniper, dropping out of a parachute into France, and battling in North Africa.

Additionally, Activision is launching a brand-new Warzone map later this year, and it will honor your past battle pass unlocks and purchases, thankfully. All of this Call of Duty news is happening as Activision Blizzard faces a lawsuit over discrimination and sexual harassment against women.
