More details about the Call of Duty: Vanguard campaign were released today. While the campaign, as usual, is just one element of the upcoming Call of Duty title, the cast of the characters and the summary of the plot with a special unit that looks very similar leave us behind Inglourious Basterds.
We’ve got some new details on voice actors, characters, and more, while keeping the core story mostly obscured. We don’t want to spoil that anyway, but the whole point is that your special unit needs to get into the heart of Nazi Germany and discover the secret behind the Phoenix Project, which is intent on reviving the Reich when it falls. First, here’s a quick rundown of the cast for all of the main story players:
Sergeant Arthur Kingsley – Chiké Okonkwo
Lieutenant Polina Petrova – Laura Bailey
Private Lucas Riggs – Martin Copping
Lieutenant 1st Class Wade Jackson – Derek Phillips
Sergeant Richard Webb – Simon Quarterman
SS Colonel Group Leader Hermann Wenzel Friesinger – Dan Donohue
Jannick Richter – Dominic Monaghan
In Call of Duty: Vanguard, players take control and play as Arthur Kingsley, Polina Petrova, Lucas Riggs and Wade Jackson. Given the nature of this Special Forces adventure that takes place in multiple locations, these characters start out in their own scenario and eventually come together to move into the beast’s belly.
What does that mean? In essence, this story allows us to encompass much more than the much-researched hike to Berlin that takes us to the Pacific and other less-explored sections of World War II. It also means that we will almost certainly get one of those cool infiltration missions that are different from standard shooting campaign segments. We looked at each other The story of Lieutenant Polina Petrova during Gamescom.
