Ahead of Call of Duty: Vanguard’s November 5 launch, Activision released a new story trailer showcasing the main cast of characters and discussing their mission in this new World War II-themed setting.
Vanguard’s story trailer highlights the new cast of operators that players will meet in the campaign, which takes place both during and after World War II. Led by Sergeant Arthur Kingsley, the operator cast is introduced as demolition expert Lucas Riggs, skilled pilot Wade Jackson, Russian sniper Polina Petrova, and Kingsley’s right-hand man Richard Webb.
Kingsley’s Task Force One team is assembled to stop a new threat, as the trailer reveals that another group of Germans are attempting to gain power and introduce “The Fourth Reich” after the fall of Hitler’s Germany. The cinematics show fighting across several different settings, including what appears to be the snowy forests of Russia and the deserts of North Africa.
Activision have also revealed the voice actors for Vanguard’s main cast:
- 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
