Call of Duty Warzone and Vanguard fans celebrate as Activision introduces classic maps in Season 4

Activision has a habit of releasing classic Call of Duty maps to its new games after a few seasons. A prime example of this is when they released Call of Duty: World at War and WW2 maps on Vanguard as expansion.

Now, Activision has announced another map as an addition to the Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune.

Sledgehammer Games announced the release of the iconic USS Texas battleship map from World War 2 on Vanguard. The map, however, will be titled a bit differently, as USS Texas 1945. For those uninitiated, Activision released Vanguard in connection with WW2, hence adding this map was obviously a must.

Apart from this, the franchise has plans to add one more map, called Desolation, in the upcoming season. Interestingly, this one will differ from USS Texas 1945, as it will consist of more space for players to move around. From cruising through mountains and creeks to walking into a devastated village, the map will provide a classic real-life experience.

Furthermore, players will get a chance to fight in a brand new gun-game mode, Blueprint, which will be introduced during the release of Season 4. So charge your controllers, as Activision is all set to take you on a fresh journey.
