The rewards include "new weapon and knife blueprints, a bike skin, a timepiece, and more." To claim the rewards, players are required to"join the fight, defeat the target, get to the exfil." The developers also promised that the event would include new elements to the game as per the Call of Duty blog.

The developers said it would include, "a new kind of weapon, hinting "it's bigger than anything we've seen before." The blog also encourages players to work together, stating completion of the Battle of Verdansk will entail "all squads working together to get the job done."

Activision also rolled out a new teaser trailer of "Call of Duty: Vanguard" ahead of its official event in "Call of Duty: Warzone." In a video available below, fans can see elements clearly pointing out that the game is set during the Second World War.

The teaser also shows remains of planes reminiscent of the period the game is set, as well as old weapons. Fans can also see a forest located in Germany. The worldwide reveal of "Call of Duty: Vanguard" in "Warzone" is not really a surprise, especially to fans since the developers pulled off the same stunt when it revealed "Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War" last year.

"Call of Duty: Vanguard" is scheduled to release sometime in the holiday of 2021. The game will launch on PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
