Vanguard Players Mock ‘Historically Accurate’ Audio`

Vanguard, of course, is in the realm of ridicule now. It didn’t take long, but it rarely does when it comes to Call of Duty - the company attracts negativity and hate whatever it does, with the likes of Dr Disrespect and xQc leading the charge on players airing their dirty laundry.

And now, it’s the game’s audio in the firing line from fans, even before the game has a chance to launch.

Vanguard Players Poke Fun At Game’s Audio

One feature that many fans haven’t been entirely won over by is its audio mixing. Many fans have complained that the game’s sounds are incredibly muffled and don’t quite cut through as other FPS titles do - but some reckon this was completely intentional.

In a jibe at Sledgehammer Games, players have complained to the tune of faux-excitement - “The game is supposed to take place in 1945 towards the end of the war/ after the war was over”, says Reddit user ian2345 in a post to the CODVanguard subreddit. “As such, it makes sense that after years of fighting, most of the soldiers have severe hearing damage from having lack of hearing protection. This is portrayed accurately as our character in the game can obviously not hear very well and all of the weapons sound tinny to him and everything sounds muted. I did not expect this attention to detail and I say bravo to you guys for making sure we feel fully immersed that way.”

It’s interesting that this gag has cropped up this way, as the conversation around historical accuracy has circled around Vanguard since its title leaked.

How Historically Accurate Is Vanguard?

Fans Poke Fun At 'Historically Accurate' Audio

Of course, Vanguard being a WWII shooter demands some kind of accuracy to the real events that inspire it, but its dedication to accuracy has been a little uneven. The game’s protagonists are based on real people who were involved in the events of the war, however, a wider conversation opened up when it was rumoured that the game would do away with the video game industry’s censorship of the swastika.

However, the symbol is yet to appear in the game - neither the game’s trailers nor beta have any of the symbols on show, instead of subbing them out for the Iron Cross, as many games set in the same era has opted for.

This could change by the game’s launch, but until then, Vanguard has inconsistent ideas of historical accuracy, for better or for worse.

Despite this, it does look like Vanguard is doing all it can to remain historically accurate without stoking offence - and frankly, that’s all they can do.
