What is Vanguard Royale ? The new game mode puts the Vanguard weapons at the center, and you can only use shooters from the latest cod. There are also the new vehicles — aircraft and an anti-air truck.
In the normal Battle Royale there is only the previously known vehicles and all weapons — including the new Vanguard weapons.
Everything about the content and the island Caldera
What’s up to the map? Since new card Caldera is a volcano island in the middle of the Pacific and works very differently than the old map Verdant. Instead of gray concrete walls in the Cold War, it goes into a green island paradise with many beaches, holiday feeling and without skyscrapers with endless staircases.
The developers report that the new map of the old card is only similar to one point: the size. Otherwise, we get a completely new experience created on the basis of the feedback to the War zone since the release. If you want to look at the trailer and many pictures for the new, green homeland of the war zone, you will find more material here:
What’s all going into the game? War zone does not just get a new map. The Pacific Update is a complete revision that affect many areas of the game and creates a new player experience.
