Get ready for Vanguard!

Call of Duty Vanguard is coming this year as Call of Duty continues its tradition of releasing a new title on a yearly basis.

Now that the game has been officially revealed and detailed, we can get an idea of what to expect in the next game.

While some may wait to put down their cash on the next game, others will be interested to know what's on offer and what they can do to get the most out of their money.

Pre-ordering the game is the best way to ensure you're playing from the minute the game goes live - so here's our pre-order guide.

Release Date

The game will launch on the 5th November 2021- pre-orders are available now!


It looks like, one again, Activision will be sticking to predominantly digital release for Call of Duty Vanguard.

Similar to last year, Vanguard will come with three editions:

  • Standard Edition
  • Cross-Gen Bundle
  • Ultimate Edition

Standard Edition

The standard edition will get players access to the base version of the game. It's not likely to come with any added extras.

It's unclear if this edition will be tied to the old generation of the game (PS4/Xbox One) or will also be supported for the new generation (PS5/Xbox Series X).

For PC players, the Standard edition is all that will be on offer.

It's expected this edition will cost £59.99.

Cross-Gen Bundle

The Cross-Gen bundle will allow players to purchase the game and play on both old and new generation consoles.

This bundle is not available for PC users.

It's expected this edition will cost £69.99.

Ultimate Edition

This edition will give players the base version of the game as well as other bonuses included below (via @_Nanikos_).

Includes Call of Duty®: Vanguard game, Task Force One Pack, Battle Pass bundle, 2XP, and more. Pre-purchase and receive early access to the Open Beta and additional content for immediate use in BOCW and Warzone™.

Operator Skins

  • Lucas
  • Polina
  • Wade


  • Breach (Assault Rifle) (Tracer Rounds)
  • Snowstorm (Marksman Rifle) (Tracer Rounds)

  • Night Raid (Submachine Gun) (Mastercraft)
  • Fontline Weapons Pack


  • 10 Battle Pass Tier Skips
  • Double XP & Double Weapon XP

This edition is expected to cost £99.99.


It looks like players that pre-order the game will once again get early access to the Open Beta and should again receive some exclusive cosmetics as a result.

For pre-ordering the game, players will also get the Night Raid Mastercraft Weapon Blueprint (for immediate use in Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone™**. See below for more details) and Operator Arthur Kingsley (to be received later for use in Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone**. See below for more details).
