Knowing how to pre-order Call of Duty: Vanguard is now the most important task for Call of Duty fans, FPS fans, and new-gen gamers to carry out. 

The behemoth series is back and the game launches on November 5, 2021. If you want to be playing it on day one and as soon as is possible then a Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-order is the way to go, and this page will help you achieve just that.

If you're looking for the perennially popular and reliable mega retailer's pages then here are the direct links to Amazon and each version's listing:

PS5 @ Amazon | PS4 @ Amazon
Xbox Series X @ Amazon | Xbox One @ Amazon

The latest in the series sees Sledgehammer Games take control and take us back to a World War II setting via the Modern Warfare engine and looks to instill the true horrors of war in us as we play. Almost as far as survival horror. You can read up more on the game and its themes, features, setting, and more, in our Call of Duty Vanguard: preview which will set you up nicely before September's Call of Duty: Vanguard beta, too.

Our price and deal-finding tech below will be constantly working hard to dig out the latest Call of Duty: Vanguard pre-order prices wherever you are, and no matter what you play on. Here are the latest prices going right now: 

The news that the PS5 version will boast a 120Hz refresh rate is welcome news too, but also means that you'll need one of the best 120hz 4K TVs or best TVs for PS5 to ensure you make the most of it.

It's worth remembering that this is another big game release that will span two console generations, so there are some key facts to remember when looking to pre-order Call of Duty. 

If you've been lucky enough to get your hands on PS5 stock, then the PS5 version will be, naturally, the best version, but if you're on PS4 still then just pay attention to the fact that you will not get a PS5 version or upgrade for free. You will have a chance to upgrade to the PS5 version via the PlayStation Store for a discounted price but this is the only way - bar buying two copies - of buying one physical copy for PS4 to then use to get a PS5 version.

On Xbox, the picture is somewhat similar as the Xbox Series X and Xbox One versions are separate. The lines are slightly blurred as you can buy an XSX disc that will work on an Xbox one console - but it will not be the new-gen version. 

The simplest way to navigate is to literally just ensure you buy the version that matches with the console you'll be playing on. If it happens to be the last-gen version then at least you can play that version o the new-gen machines even if it won't be the shiniest of versions. One way to get around this could be to go digital on either console, where you can purchase Cross-Gen bundles that'll bag you both versions in one transaction.
