Call of Duty Vanguard’s in-game Warzone reveal event gets new details
Battle of Verdansk participants will be rewarded with cosmetics items
New details about the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard reveal event have been confirmed.
Publisher Activision officially announced Call of Duty: Vanguard with a teaser trailer on Monday.
The game is set to be revealed on August 19 at 10.30am PT / 1.30 pm ET / 6.30 pm BST via an in-game Warzone event titled the Battle of Verdansk.
The Call of Duty twitter account confirmed on Tuesday that participants will be rewarded with in-game gear including new weapon and knife blueprints, a bike skin, a timepiece “and more”.
“Join the fight, defeat the target, get to the exfil and earn rewards,” it teased.
Warzone players will also earn double XP, double weapon XP, and double battle pass XP in the hour leading up to the Battle of Verdansk.
Call of Duty: Vanguard promotional material leaked last week, with artwork revealing several editions, plans for an open beta and more.
Developer Sledgehammer Games then started officially teasing the game by sending teaser videos to content creators.
Teasers have also begun appearing in-game via Warzone, with winning players being killed off by a mysterious character at the end of matches.

Call of Duty: Vanguard will feature a campaign, multiplayer and Zombies modes set in the European and Pacific theatres of World War II, with its plot centring around the birth of modern allied Special Forces, according to VGC’s sources.
It will also launch alongside an entirely new Warzone map said to be set in the Pacific theatre and significantly larger than the current Verdansk map, VGC reported earlier this summer.
According to Modern Warzone and reputable leaker Tom Henderson, a Call of Duty Vanguard alpha test is scheduled for August 27-29, ahead of a PlayStation beta from September 10-12, and a beta on all platforms from September 16-20.
Activision has confirmed plans to launch Call of Duty: Vanguard during the fourth quarter of 2021, with a November 5 release date hotly tipped.
