It’s that time of year again where we get yet another addition to the Call of Duty franchise. This time around, we’re jumping back into the World War 2 era but not as typically depicted in past entries. Sledgehammer Games has taken up a slightly different approach, looking at the war through different soldiers’ eyes, thus taking you, the players, to different countries around the world in the highly-anticipated campaign.
So what does that mean for multiplayer? Well, you’ll still be slotting the classic weapons into your loadout. This includes the ever-popular MP40, M1 Garand, and Kar98k, along with new, customizable additions utilizing Vanguard’s take on the Gunsmith. But what about the PVP maps?
Sledgehammer appears to have gone all out in terms of multiplayer maps, dropping a whopping 16 at launch (20 including Champion Hill), a fair few more than what we’ve been used to from both recent Treyarch and Infinity Ward franchise entries. With this number of areas to fight in, there also has to be variation both in location and the look and feel of the maps themselves. Luckily, Sledgehammer has been right on this, utilizing the multi-country campaign as a foundation for its multiplayer settings, creating a plethora of environments that won’t get stale.
Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer map list
Below, you’ll be able to see the full list of COD Vanguard maps that are available from launch. These range from being located in the heart of Germany with Battle of Berlin, to Japan with Gavutu, to North Africa with Desert Siege. This clearly highlights the environment shake-ups with each individual map offering up not only varying vistas but also completely different color palettes.
- Battle of Berlin
- Das Haus
- Desert Siege
- Eagle’s Nest
- Hotel Royal
- Numa Numa
- Red Star
- Sub Pens
These are obviously just the maps launching with CoD Vanguard and don’t include the aforementioned Champion Hill maps and Warzone’s new Pacific battle royale map. This won’t be it for the year either. We expect there to be more map additions as new DLC seasons drop to hopefully extend the lifespan of the multiplayer mode, removing the reliance on Warzone to prop up the game’s longevity.
