Activision has shared the first look at Call of Duty: Vanguard's multiplayer, diving in-depth into the maps, modes and guns you'll be able to use at launch.

Across 20 various maps set across the globe, players will have a wide variety of different locales to blow to bits with their buddies. The majority of the stream focused on various developers discussing changes for this year's iteration, which appears to be based on tactical gameplay. This involves destructible environments, tactical sprints and offering the player freedom in how they approach combat.

We'll be honest, as impressive as the buzzwords sound for Call of Duty: Vanguard, the gameplay shown looks largely the same as previous years. We'd be hard-pressed to truly spot any difference from previous entries. However, no doubt fans of the series will already be on board.

If you're not interested in watching the full in-depth discussion about Call of Duty: Vanguard, then check out the much shorter trailer below:

Xbox players will be able to check out the early access beta on September 16-17, with everyone joining in the fun on September 18-20. If you want to see if there are any improvements in the formula before its launch this November, this is your best chance.
