Call of Duty: Vanguard has been officially revealed, and we even have a sneak peek at what different editions we can expect out of this year's CoD. Let's take a look at all the Call of Duty: Vanguard Editions that will be available at launch, and let's recommend which edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard you should buy.

A new year, a new Call of Duty, a new assortment of absurdly over-priced editions of the game. Developers are apparently incapable of releasing a complete game, instead choosing to withhold content for the purpose of pennies in the pocket. Anyway, enough cynicism! Call of Duty: Vanguard has been revealed, and now we even have information on the content included in each of the different Call of Duty: Vanguard Editions.

How to get Arthur Kingsley?

Arthur Kingsley is one of the Vanguard operators that will also be available in Warzone and Black Ops Cold War through a pre-order of Vanguard. Those who want to play the new operator in CoD: Mobile as well just had to play the Vanguard beta with the same Activision account that is used for CoD: Mobile.

Which Edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard Should you Buy?

We would recommend picking up either the Cross-Gen or the Ultimate Edition of Call of Duty: Vanguard. That being said, it really just depends on what you want out of it. If you currently have a last-gen console, and want to upgrade in the near-future, then you should definitely pick up the Cross-Gen Edition. In terms of the Ultimate Edition, this is really only for those of you who are hyped about the new operators and weapons. Personally, I just want to play the game: so if I purchased the Ultimate Edition, it would be for the Battle Pass, and not for the bundles. It is all just personal preference, though, so we'd really just recommend thinking about what works best for you, and purchase whichever Call of Duty: Vanguard Edition fits that criteria. Enjoy!
