Call of Duty: Vanguard is launching later this week, and will bring World War II back to the world of bro-shooters. Whilst that was not necessarily something that we wanted, Sledgehammer Games have somehow managed to hype us all up for its release this Friday. The big question, though, is when can we dig into this juicy beast?

Let's be real: we all know that Call of Duty: Vanguard is releasing on Friday, November 5. The thing is, though, that the game will be available to play at different times in different countries. Whilst it will launch for everyone on November 5, it will be available to play at different times depending on where you live. So, hence the question "When can I play Call of Duty: Vanguard?"

When Is Vanguard Releasing Across the World?

Call of Duty: Vanguard will not be releasing concurrently across the world, instead releasing at different times in different countries based on their time zones. Below are a list of the main release times across the world.

Whilst Call of Duty: Vanguard won't be available till mid-afternoon in places like Sydney, Australia, the game is available for preloading already, allowing you to download the game before you can play it. This is fantastic for players, like me, who are insanely hyped to get our hands on this latest project from Sledgehammer Games. Why am I so excited? Well, because I won't have to wait to play the game after it releases. It is already downloaded!

In addition, the new Warzone Caldera Map will be available earlier for those of us who decide to purchase Vanguard. If you pick up Vanguard between launch and the release of the new map on December 3, you will be able to access the new Warzone Map 24-hours earlier than previously. Thus, don't forget to buy Vanguard if you want to play Caldera on December 2!

So, to summarise: Call of Duty: Vanguard will release at different times across the globe. Thus, if you want to play Vanguard on-launch, you need to pay attention to your local release time. Additionally, the game is already available for preload, and if you pick up the game before Warzone's Caldera Map launches on December 3, you can play the new map 24-Hours earlier than everyone else!
