Call of Duty has been a gamer’s favorite title for more than a decade now. Alhough it might not garner as much hype as it did in the late 2000’s, it’s still one of the hottest franchises in the video game…game.

With that being said, Activision has just announced that the next installment in the series is on the way and gamers will be able to experience the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard at the event inside Call of Duty: Warzone this Thursday (August 19) at 10:30 AM Pacific time.

Looking to add some new spice to an old recipe, the new COD will call on soldiers from around the world to work together on a new threat as opposed to go head-to-head on the battlefield. In their latest blog for Call of Duty, Activision describes the new gameplay and it’s theme or unity.

“Until today, you fought against each other. NATO against Warsaw Pact. Coalition against Allegiance. Now, with this new threat, we are all one squad for this mission.”

“Rally yourself and the three strongest members of your strike team for this operation – it’s the first of its kind, as we all need to work in tandem to scratch that death machine off the map.”

“If we get the job done well during the Battle of Verdansk, rest assured: you and the squad will be rewarded for your efforts. Custom firepower and plenty of special keepsakes are all up for grabs, including some for being a part of this massive mission. But of course, those who do significant damage to this enemy and rendezvous to the exfil point in time will get some additional rewards that will make them stand out from the greenhorns in our ranks.”

Sounds like hella fun.
