Warzone Pacific will allow you to fly fighter jets

Activision has introduced a new twist to the traditional battle royale experience, forcing Warzone Pacific players to keep their eyes on the skies in the Vanguard Royale game mode.
On 30th November, Activision introduced a new home for Warzone Pacific in its novel "paradise for combat," Caldera, referring to its dormant volcano.

The announcement paralleled the reveal of Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 1 starting on 8th December and highlighted a menu of incredible feature additions to the game, including World War 2 fighter planes set to pepper the sky.

According to the Call of Duty official blog post, players that opt to play the Vanguard Royale game mode in Warzone Pacific will have to "prepare for the action to heat up both on land and in the air."

Followingly, the developers announced two major feature additions that set the game mode apart from the traditional battle royale in their blog.

Specifically, Activision has announced that Vanguard Royale will include new vehicles and dogfighting, meaning players can pilot fighter planes equipped with heavy artillery to eliminate their enemies in the game.

Best of all, players on the ground will be able to find anti-aircraft weaponry and trucks that they can use to shoot aircraft down from the sky.

"There are also other ground-based vehicles, including a Squad Transport all-terrain car that will help your squad cut through and around the island," Activision noted.

Another key feature is that Warzone Pacific's Vanguard Royale will place a strong focus on Vanguard weapons. Activision notes that "loadouts can only contain Vanguard weaponry, streamlining the meta for more accessibility and room for experimentation."

This means that all weapons on the island will be from COD Vanguard and that players' choice of Operators will also be limited to the Vanguard infantry soldiers.

The developers further note that "the radii and times for Circle Collapses are altered to offer a different pace of play, especially with dogfighting overhead."

They continued to say that players can "expect an in-game event at each Circle Collapse, Bombing Runs, and different items both within Caldera's overworld and contract rewards."

Together, these features are expected to create a unique "Vanguard-specific" experience, which may closely be reminiscent of the game's intended World War 2 era.

With that said, we're curious to hear your thoughts on these feature additions. So be sure to let us know what you think on Twitter.
