Official Announcements Trailer


Vanguard: Normandy 1944 immerses players into the intensity of online close-quarters infantry combat. In their Raid gamemode, every life matters; hold the line as the defenders, take up ambush positions with your squad, and critically stay alive to hold the objective. Alternatively, assault the objective as the attacking team by advancing with your squad, suppressing the enemy, and wiping out the defenders to capture the objective.

They designed Raid as their principle gamemode because they want to put the player in the boots of an infantry soldier and instantly experience a slice of hectic, fast-paced combat on real-life battlefields without having to run around a large map trying to find the action.

The Team

The team developing Vanguard: Normandy 1944 came together because of the desire to play a historically accurate, tactical, team-based multiplayer game that is still accessible and fun to play (yes, they do believe those features can co-exist!). The Team don’t want to spend 20 minutes walking to an objective, or game rounds lasting over an hour. They want to create an intense and tactical objective-based shooter in a modern engine that is fun to play, yet players still face the threat that a single bullet can end their life. You will find that a well organised squad utilising suppression and manoeuvring as a single fighting unit is the most effective road to success.
