Call of Duty: Vanguard is taking the fight back in time to World War II, featuring all of the war’s locations, operators, weaponry, and more.

While the setting and more are different from previous CoD titles like Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, CoD’s classic game modes are there, offering a familiar feel to anyone who jumps into some multiplayer games in Vanguard.

Vanguard will offer a variety of new and returning game modes. The classics like Domination and Search and Destroy are there, but so are new ones like Patrol, which forces teams to hold an objective that’s constantly moving around the map.

The flagship new mode in Vanguard is Champion Hill, which is a mix between battle royale and Team Deathmatch. It rewards teamwork, communication, and, of course, gun skill, all while being played across four different maps at once.

Here are all of the game modes confirmed to be in CoD: Vanguard.
