Call of Duty League Reveals Its 2022 Season Schedule, Mid-Season Warzone Tournament

by Rainier on Jan. 14, 2022 @ 12:42 p.m. PST

Players will turn the tides of war to experience World War II like never before in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Vanguard delivers the complete package to Call of Duty fans across Campaign, online Multiplayer and Zombies co-operative modes. Players will witness the origins of Special Forces as they change the face of history, forming Task Force One in a sprawling World War II narrative campaign spanning the Eastern and Western fronts of Europe, the Pacific, and North Africa. Multiplayer features 20 maps on day one at launch. While Zombies fans will experience a signature undead gameplay experience, marking a franchise-first Zombies crossover for Call of Duty.

Later this year, Vanguard players will be immersed in a fully integrated, new Call of Duty: Warzone experience featuring a brand-new map, new gameplay and new experiences. Together, this is the most connected Call of Duty ever, all powered by the next-generation Call of Duty engine introduced in Modern Warfare.

It's time to rise on every front.

"We’re just one week away from the 2022 Kickoff Classic. We can’t wait to see all 12 teams battling it out on LAN at Esports Stadium Arlington on Jan. 21 -23 in front of a live audience."
