Activision debuts a pair of Vanguard cinematics in the wake of the game’s world premier

Yes, we’ve known about Call of Duty: Vanguard for a while. But last night was the official “World Premier” celebration, as the game head’s to release.

World Premier

Call of Duty: Vanguard had its World Premier party last night, and there were a few pretty slick things to spin out of it. First and foremost are a pair of trailers, each one showing off one of the major parts of the FPS.

Those would be the new zombies mode, and the campaign, if you’re wondering. But the show was much bigger than that, with a bunch of non-gaming related stuff, and even a concert.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Premiere With Verzuz Gamez Experience And Live Migos Concert

  • Call of Duty fans Migos performed an epic set of their fan-favorite hits “Narcos,” “Bad and Boujee,” “Walk It Talk It,” “Ric Flair Drip,” “Avalanche” and “Add It Up” among others 
  • Celebrity showdowns included Lil Jon, Lil Huddy and Lil Tecca beating Big Sean and Big Boi while using Call of Duty’s signature multiplayer. The “Lils v Bigs” showdown also included top gamers and personalities to round out the teams.
  • JoJo had fun posing alongside a wall of hunted Call of Duty Zombie heads after talking about her plans for her upcoming tour 
  • New gaming fan, Lori Harvey shared how her super-fan boyfriend got her hooked on the game
  • Fashion Items: celebrity guests JoJo [shirt/shorts: Alexander Wang, shoes: Christian Louboutin] and Teyana Taylor [shirt: self-designed Teyana Taylor tour shirt, pants: Rick Owens, glasses: Chanel, sneakers: Jordan x Travis Scott, jacket: Call of Duty] walked the carpet in style
  • Colton Underwood arrived with his new beau and while on the red carpet mentioned how Call of Duty is a great bonding activity for him and his family, especially during the holidays
  • LA Laker, DeAndre Jordan showed his off-court game skills in the VIP Gaming Lounge
  • The cast of Call of Duty: Vanguard stopped for a group picture on the one-of-a-kind “camo” carpet

So cool stuff, yeah there was a lot of it, and it sounds like it was quite the spectacle. That’s probably to be expected for this kind of a thing, as Activision has a mega-brand with CoD. So big explosive, over the top Hollywood-type stuff is a natural fit.

As for those trailers though, both are great looking, and set the stage nicely for Call of Duty: Vanguard’s launch. That, by the way, happens this week, on November 5th, 2021.
