As promised for Gamescom Opening Night Live, a first-look at raw next-gen footage of Call of Duty: Vanguard has been shared.

In terms of the gameplay, it's the usual Call of Duty fluff. Explosions, sneaking around and a couple of stunning set-pieces for good measure. It looks absolutely gorgeous, clearly taking advantage of next-gen hardware with its impressive visuals.

Call of Duty: Vanguard launches on November 5 across all current Xbox platforms. A beta will be coming ahead of release, but unfortunately, Xbox players won't be able to test out this weekend's alpha preview, which is reserved for PlayStation users.

How do you feel Call of Duty: Vanguard is shaping up? Let us know in the comments below.
