Multiplayer and franchise-first Zombies crossover

We will see a tactical approach in Vanguard as compared to the previous Call of Duty predecessors. One map has the name ‘Eagle’s Nest.’ 16 maps out of 20 will have a 6v6 core mode and the remaining 4 will focus on 2v2 skirmishes.
Some features of the fame will include the new ‘Combat Pacing’ option, allowing players to encounter the other via specific combat, ‘Blitz’ allows better target environment, ‘Tactical’ makes you go on a slower pace and set up ambushes, and ‘Champion Hill’ the brand new model, will be out soon.
The game also has the popular Zombie mode as the core. Saving yourself from the dead but undead would be fun. Vanguard will not settle here but will bring change to COD: Warzone by introducing a brand-new map, new gameplay, and new experiences making it the most connected Call of Duty ever.
