Today, more details have been released on the Call of Duty: Vanguard campaign. While the campaign is, as usual, only one element of the upcoming Call of Duty title, the cast of characters and plot summary leave us with a special forces task force that looks a lot like Inglourious Basterds.
It is important to keep in mind what is going on within Activision Blizzard at this time regarding ongoing allegations about the work culture. The ongoing lawsuit from the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) against the company is over reported toxic workplace culture. The bulk of the suit focuses on “violations of the state’s civil rights and equal pay laws,” specifically regarding the treatment of women and other marginalized groups. To learn more about the proceedings thus far, including details listed in the lawsuit against Activision Blizzard, please check out our previous coverage here.
We have some new details on voice actors, characters, and more, while the core plotline remains mostly shrouded. We wouldn’t want that spoiled anyway, but the crux of it is that your special forces operation has to head into the heart of Nazi Germany and discover the mystery behind the Phoenix Project, which has intentions to resurrect the Reich as it falls. First, here’s a quick rundown of the voice cast for all of the main story players:
Sergeant Arthur Kingsley – Chiké Okonkwo
Lieutenant Polina Petrova – Laura Bailey
Private Lucas Riggs – Martin Copping
Lieutenant 1st Class Wade Jackson – Derek Phillips
Sergeant Richard Webb – Simon Quarterman
SS Oberst-Gruppenführer Hermann Wenzel Friesinger – Dan Donohue
Jannick Richter – Dominic Monaghan
In Call of Duty: Vanguard, players will take control and play as Arthur Kingsley, Polina Petrova, Lucas Riggs, and Wade Jackson. Given the nature of this special forces adventure that takes place over quite a few locations, these characters start in their own scenario and eventually come together to move into the belly of the beast.
What does this mean? Essentially, it allows this tale to encompass a lot more than the often-explored trek to Berlin, bringing us to the Pacific and other less-explored segments of World War II. This also means we’re almost certainly going to get one of those cool infiltration missions that feel different from standard shooty campaign segments. We took a look at Lieutenant Polina Petrova’s tale during Gamescom.
