Unlike recent entries, CoD Vanguard’s PlayStation exclusives don’t include a game mode
PS4 and PS5 players get Battle Pass tier skips, seasonal combat packs and more
Call of Duty: Vanguard won’t feature a PlayStation exclusive game mode, unlike the past two entries in the series.
Last week, ahead of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s release on November 5, publisher Activision detailed the game’s launch content and the road to Season 1, which will arrive on December 2 alongside Warzone’s new Pacific map Caldera.
In a follow-up post on the PlayStation Blog, Activision detailed Vanguard content that will only be available for PS4 and PS5 players, which won’t include a timed exclusive mode – something later confirmed to Modern Warzone.
2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare came with a Special Ops Survival mode which was exclusive to PS4 for one year, while 2020’s Black Ops Cold War included a Zombies mode called Onslaught which is only this week being made available to Xbox and PC players.
PS4 and PS5 players who purchase the Vanguard Battle Pass Bundle, which comes with one season’s Battle Pass and 20 tier skips on all platforms, will get an additional five tier skips.
PlayStation Plus members will receive an exclusive in-game bundle each Vanguard season. The first of these seasonal combat packs will include a new operator skin, a weapon blueprint “and much more”.
PlayStation players that play together in parties will receive 25% bonus weapon XP. And a series of PlayStation exclusive monthly double XP events are planned, each lasting for 24 hours.
PS4 and PS5 players will get an two additional loadout slots too.
Last week, Call of Duty: Vanguard developer Sledgehammer Games revealed a list of changes it’s made to the game following recent online tests.
