Call Of Duty: Vanguard is coming this winter and while Sledgehammer Games has kept its cards close to its chest up to now, we've gotten a glimpse at the campaign content.

Returning to the Second World War and its aftermath, the story centres on the origins of a Special Forces unit who will fight against the resurgence of Nazism. The four playable soldiers are based on real historical fighters from that period - Sergeant Arthur Kingsley is a British paratrooper, Lieutenant Polina Petrova is a Soviet sniper, Lieutenant Wade Jackson is US fighter pilot and Private Lucas Riggs is an Australian infantryman.

Although the Axis powers have lost, the Special Forces unit are attempting to discover what "Project Phoenix" entails and prevent a successor stepping into Adolf Hitler's shoes. The fictional Heinrich Freisinger is inspired by Heinrich Müller, who was the chief of the Gestapo and instrumental to the Holocaust. After Hitler's death, Müller disappeared without a trace, so it's possible that the writers have taken some creative liberties with his fate.

Furthermore, the multiplayer will offer 20 maps from the get-go with a "franchise-first, universe-expanding Zombies crossover." Crossplay between generations and platforms is possible in these modes and post-launch content in the form of "new Multiplayer and Zombies maps and modes, seasonal events, community celebrations" and more are in the works. And, playing Modern Warfare, Black Ops Cold War, Vanguard or Warzone will contribute to progress in the Battle Pass for new Vanguard goodies. Tidy.

Last month, Activision was criticised for cultivating a toxic environment in its studios and the subsequent lawsuit is seeking monetary relief and damages for the effect it has had on women in the company. SOC Investment Group, one of the company's own investors, stated that Activision's action plan to improve its office culture "do not go nearly far enough." Presently, current and former employees have said that it is "yet to embrace significant change."
