Here's Call Of Duty: Vanguard's PS4/PS5-Exclusive Content
PlayStation users are getting a series of bonuses and extras.
Sledgehammer Games has announced the various bonuses that PlayStation users will receive for Call of Duty: Vanguard, and there are quite a few. You won't be getting a separate mode if you are playing on those platforms, but there is still a lot of content that PC and Xbox players won't have access to.
As posted on the PlayStation Blog and relayed by CharlieIntel below, PlayStation users can look forward to monthly double XP events, extra custom loadout slots, and five tier skips with the Battle Pass bundle. Those playing on a PlayStation console will also receive a new Combat Pack for each new season (PS Plus subscribers only), as well as +25% weapon XP when playing together with friends in a party.

Activision and Sony have a deal in place whereby PlayStation users get access to content before other platforms, and Vanguard is just the latest in the series to carry this tradition forward. Before this, PlayStation got to try Vanguard's Champion Hill mode before anyone else, while the beta was made available first on PlayStation before coming to Xbox and PC later.
A recent trailer for Vanguard showed that its PlayStation exclusive content won't come to Xbox or PC for at least a year. This has been the policy with past games, as the special Onslaught Zombies mode stayed exclusive for a year in Black Ops Cold War, as well.
For years, Microsoft had a deal with Activision for Call of Duty exclusivity before Sony won it away from the Xbox company starting with Black Ops III in 2015. Every game since then has featured some form of exclusive content on PlayStation, and so did Destiny when it was published by Activision.
Vanguard releases on November 5, and it's not the only big event for Call of Duty this year. The battle royale game Warzone is introducing a brand-new map, Caldera, and the game is changing its name to Warzone Pacific to coincide with the WWII theme. Additionally, Activision continues to ramp up its efforts in the mobile space for Call of Duty with the acquisition of Digital Legends.
All of this is happening as Activision Blizzard faces a lawsuit and other investigations over sexual harassment and discrimination of women at the company.
