As we grow closer to the release of this years Call of Duty title, fans have became increasingly disappointed as they realise it may not feature one of their favourite modes.
As the release of Call of Duty: Vanguard draws closer, fans are becoming are increasingly excited, some lucky players have even had the chance to grab a slice of the action in the Alpha version of the game.
The Alpha allowed PlayStation users to experience the new battle royale/Gunfight style mode named Champions Hill.
Now, players are patiently awaiting the arrival of the beta prior to the games full release which is scheduled to take place on November 5.
More information is becoming available to fans, giving them some insight into what they can expect. Of course, while we don’t know a great deal just yet, the fact one mode in particular is yet to be mentioned has got some fans worried.
Back in 2017, Sledgehammer Games brought back the War game mode however it as significantly different to what we had seen previously in World at War.
Now, it seems that fans are hoping the mode will return in this years instalment, despite it not being mentioned thus far.
Reddit user ‘Martian_Zombie50’ took to the platform to share their concerns on the missing mode, the post read “No War Mode in Vanguard is Deeply Disappointing; It Was the Best Game Mode Ever in a COD Game”.
“My favorite COD is WWII (2017) specifically because it introduced the game mode called ‘War’. In my opinion War mode was by far the best game mode of any COD ever. It gave each game breadth and variance that no other game mode could. It strongly encouraged objective-based gameplay rather than the monotony of running around a tiny map endlessly killing.”
“I hoped that Sledgehammer would bring this mode back with Vanguard. Such a shame that the best mode won’t see a new game. We know the reason though: Activision leads decided (erroneously), that more maps in totality at launch, is better for marketing, and they needed that after consecutive years of fewer map numbers”.
The post was soon met with a flood of comments from other users who were also in agreement and hoped they may see the fan favourite mode return.
One user said “Yep. If it was in i would definitely be buying. Spent hundreds of hours in that mode in WWII. I’m gonna have to be fully convinced this isn’t MW ’19 reskinned before i buy if there’s no war mode.”
Another said “War Mode is the only thing that will get me to buy this game. I will buy it on launch, hell I will preorder it if War Mode is in there. Otherwise, hard pass on this and probably all future CoD titles since it appears the game is just not to my liking anymore.”
A third wrote “It seems like you are really going out of your way to assume that its not coming back. We know treyarch did zombies for vanguard as well and we havent heard anything about that either.”
It is too early to say if we will see this mode return, although there won’t be too much longer until we find out.
