Experienced war journalists Alex Potter and Sebastiano Tomada Piccolomini dived into World War II by stepping inside Call of Duty: Vanguard. The two journalists took photos of in-game footage and reported back on their realistic portrayal.
According to Fernando Machado, Chief Marketing Officer of Activision Blizzard:
“Call of Duty: Vanguard captures the epic intimacy of World War II in an incredibly immersive manner. We tested its realism by sending in Alex Potter and Sebastiano Tomada Piccolomini with special camera-like portals into the game engine itself, which took them back in time as if they were a photographer in that period, showing how real Vanguard will truly look and feel to gamers everywhere.”
The photos snapped by the war journalists inside Call of Duty: Vanguard are for sale as limited edition prints at Bleecker Trading NY and its website. Each print run is limited to 25 prints and is priced at $515.
All proceeds from the photography sales will be donated to the Call of Duty Endowment. For those who are unfamiliar, Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit organisation that helps military veterans. For every photo sold, the Call of Duty Endowment will fund one high-quality veteran job.
Call of Duty: Vanguard releases on November 9 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S and PC. Learn more about the game’s campaign here.
