A couple of Disney’s biggest Nazi hunters are coming to Call of Duty Vanguard, according to a data mine of the game’s files that references both character.
A data miner has revealed evidence of both Captain America and Indiana Jones coming to the latest Call of Duty Vanguard seemingly in an upcoming event. In addition, a Captain America-related calling card was uncovered in the game’s files for players to show off after unlocking Steve Rogers in the game. In a tweet, the game files are listed with ‘S4’ which can be gathered stands for Sledgehammer with ‘4’ indicating Call of Duty Vanguard as the game is the studio’s 4th Call of Duty game. The ‘AH’ might stand for ‘American Heroes’ which could be an upcoming event coming in the game’s first season kicking off in December. Both heroes are not the only thing coming as an Attack on Titan crossover might be coming to the game as well.
Both characters’ placement in the game fit as they were around during the game’s setting as Captain America’s origin took place during World War II and Indiana Jones’ adventures mostly took place during the war as well. Their placement in the game isn’t that odd as Warzone celebrated Halloween with the inclusion of characters from the Scream, Saw and Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchises. Earlier this year saw the addition of John McClane from Die Hard and John Rambo in Warzone’s Verdansk 1984 map. Previous movie tie-in Call of Duty bundles usually cost around 2,400 CoD Points ($20) which on top of the characters comes with additional weapon skins, emblems and emotes.
Call of Duty Vanguard recently rolled out an update that addresses a few problems players were facing. In addition, Activision has removed a disrespectful appearance of the Qur’an and has apologized to the Muslim community. The Qur’an could be seen lying on the floor in Call of Duty Vanguard which is considered disrespectful and led to complaints from Muslim players who voiced their opinion. The most prominent voice was former Vlambeer founder Rami Ismail who criticizes Activision’s ‘needless inclusion’ of the religious book after removing it.
“Could we please just not put text from the Quran on the ground or on places people where people can walk on it,” Ismail asked on Twitter.
“Even if you think religion is nonsense, there’s just no reason to be disrespectful towards two billion people’s culture and beliefs in a videogame for a throwaway asset.”
