Call of Duty: Vanguard – Warzone Event Start Time, Trailer, and Details Revealed


If the latest Call of Duty: Warzone patch felt a little underwhelming to you, it might be because Activision and the Call of Duty teams recently revealed that the free-to-play battle royale will soon host the official reveal of the next Call of Duty game: Vanguard.

Warzone previously played host to the official reveal of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War which turned out to be a kind of elaborate in-game Easter egg hunt that ended with the debut of the first full Cold War trailer as well as a few new permanent additions to Warzone and Modern Warfare. It wasn’t nearly as elaborate as the best Fortnite events, but it was a fun distraction for an otherwise popular game that sometimes needs a shot in the arm.

Should you expect something similar for the upcoming Vanguard event? It’s tough to say at the moment, but here’s what we know about it so far:

Call of Duty: Vanguard Teaser Trailer

Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s first teaser trailer doesn’t give us much to go on, but it does confirm the biggest pre-release rumor surrounding the game: its World War 2 setting. While it’s only been 5 years since the release of the last WW2-based Call of Duty game, elements of this trailer suggest that Vanguard may not be an entirely “traditional” WW2 game.

Again, it’s not much, but see what details you can spot in Vanguard‘s first official trailer:

Call of Duty: Vanguard – Warzone Reveal Event Start and End Time

If you want to participate in Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s official reveal event, you’re going to have to be logged in to a Warzone playlist starting at 1:30 PM EST on August 19th. The Call of Duty website also notes that if you participate in any Warzone playlist between 12:30 PM and 1:29 PM EST, you’ll receive Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass XP. It sounds like those bonuses end as soon as the actual reveal event starts, so you’re going to want to make the most out of that 59-minute window.

Unfortunately, we currently do not know how long the actual Vanguard event will last. It’s likely that the reveal itself will be brief, but if previous Warzone reveal events are any indication, you’ll be able to participate in a special Vanguard-themed mode (or just enjoy a few new pieces of content) for days/weeks after the reveal concludes.

Call of Duty: Vanguard – Warzone Reveal Event Details and New Weapons

There isn’t a lot of official information available about the Vanguard reveal event, but it’s very much worth noting that previous Warzone reveal events allowed players to participate in special Warzone modes and playlists. While we suspect that the Vanguard and Warzone teams have something similar planned for this upcoming reveal, it’s interesting that the CoD website mentions that the “Battle of Verdansk will begin in Call of Duty: Warzone” starting at 1:30 PM EST on August 19th.” That’s kind of an odd choice of phrasing considering that it feels like Warzone players have been participating in the “Battle of Verdansk” this entire time, but it does contribute to the popular theory that the Vanguard reveal will advance the weird pseudo-serial story that Warzone has quietly been building for quite some time now.

Furthermore, the CoD team recently teased via Twitter that this event will add a new weapon and vehicle to Warzone, but it sadly looks like they’re withholding further information until the event officially starts.
