Call Of Duty Fans Demand Classic WWII Maps To 'Fix' Vanguard
As will come as no surprise to anyone, Call of Duty: Vanguard hasn't exactly met expectations. Internally and externally, Vanguard has struggled to maintain the attention of new and old fans of Call of Duty alike. Thankfully, fans have a new idea of what could help the game win back some deserters.
Even the game's teams are looking forward to the next title, rather than wasting their time making amendments. The game's season structure is doing enough to keep some coming back every once in a while, but little beyond that - as many opt to stick to Warzone, or even move on entirely.
Players Want Call Of Duty: WWII Maps In Vanguard
Vanguard hopefuls have rallied up to suggest that in order to offset the waning interest in the game, Sledgehammer Games should introduce a number of maps from 2017's Call of Duty: WWII. Because naturally, fans are doing the developer's job for it as Activision is lost in its own hubris, blaming a hatred of WWII for its failure.
In a post on Reddit, one user has suggested that the game's theme and setting makes the crossover perfect for introduction before the arrival of Modern Warfare II. Then again, much like Vanguard, Call of Duty: World War II didn't exactly get rave reviews upon launch.
"Why don't you guys release a WWII multiplayer map pack?" reads the post. "Some of my favourite maps were London Docks, Ardennes, USS Texas, Flak Tower, Pointe du Hoc, Sandbox and Aachen. I'd pay good money for a map pack like that in Vanguard multiplayer."
Fans React To WWII Map Pack In Vanguard
Fans have responded to the notion of WWII maps arriving in Vanguard, and though the map pack model has become outdated in favour of the free updates that arrived alongside Modern Warfare, they're still keen for the maps to make it into the game. "Should be done," said one commenter. "I'd go one step further and add Pierson, Daniels and Zussman as Operators."
"I'd pay for USS Texas to be back!" said another - but others aren't so convinced that the idea will come to life. "If they do people complain it's recycled content, if they don't people complain about too little content," says one sceptical user. "It's a lose-lose."
Though map packs are practically done and dusted for Call of Duty, it'd still be a nice touch for these classic locales to arrive in the game. Still, it's only a nice idea that a World War II content drop would do anything for the game's dwindling numbers. Vanguard is on its last leg already - and maps might not be the thing to bring it back.
