A new collaboration has been launched on Call of Duty: Vanguard where actual war photojournalists were able to capture some in-game war photographs. This is the first time it’s been done for the series and it seems the result has the feel as if they were part of the missions.

The photojournalists were Alex Potter and Sebastiano Tomada Piccolmini, both having a wide experience when it comes to shooting in conflict regions. This included the different battles that happened across the Middle East.

In this particular case, the two went to Activision’s motion capture studios and ventured inside the game for an exclusive photoshoot. You can get an idea of what they did in the trailer below:

There’s no question that there’s a lot this upcoming game has to offer, especially in graphics and visual immersion.

In a statement, Activision Blizzard Chief Marketing Officer Fernando Machado said that the game can capture the epic intimacy of World War II and offer a truly immersive manner. He added that the reason why they actually sent Potter and Piccolomini inside the game is to test its realism.

Potter shared that the pictures he took were typically the situations he normally captures. Piccolmini revealed that he was truly impressed with how immersive everything was.

Call of Duty Endowment

It’s also been announced that limited edition prints of the Call of Duty: Vanguard in-game photography are going to be available beginning October 21 at 3:00 p.m. ET at www.BleeckerTrading.com and Bleecker Trading NY. All proceeds will be donated to the Call of Duty Endowment.

The Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit organization that funded the placement of at least 90,000 veterans into high-quality employment. It hopes to place about 100,000 veterans into meaningful jobs by 2024.

Call of Duty Endowment Executive Director Dan Goldenberg said that this special collaboration is a good chance to continue raising awareness as well as honoring the veterans.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is set to be released on November 5 on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
