Ahead of its November 5 release date, Activision has released a lot of details on CoD Vanguard. However, players are finding plot holes in its story.
Sledgehammer Games, the developer team of the game, has said that it is rooted but not beholden to the World War 2 timeline.
On August 25, during Gamescom, new gameplay showed off several new weapons and elements. Some members of the game’s online community were left unimpressed by the graphics.
Vanguard Alpha received mixed reactions from the Call of Duty community, with the loudest roasting the game’s console graphics.
Some people had claimed that the graphics look like they’re from a Nintendo DS or the year 2000. However, Alpha’s presentation didn’t bother many players.
Call of Duty content creator JGOD, called it insane for the first look at CoD 2021 to be a look at limited console visuals. Now, people are criticizing that the title doesn’t exactly look like a World War-inspired experience.
Black Ops Cold War was the previous installment in the series. Due to inaccuracy in historical details, critics condemned the game. One of the biggest mistakes in the game was the portrayal of the Viet Cong.
A TikTok user named ‘spectrexgaming’ spotted a big mystery in CoD Vanguard. “If red dots weren’t deployed until 30 years after WW2, how are they in Vanguard?” the caption reads.
According to the original inventor of the red dot sight, Aimpoint, they released their first version in 1975. Which is 30 years after the Second World War concluded.
Thus, it turns out that the game’s developers committed a faux pas. They did cover their tracks by suggesting the latest Call of Duty story was not beholden to the timeline. Vanguard is already becoming popular on TikTok, months before launch.
