Mercenaries of Fortune launches on Xbox on June 22nd. Here’s what’s coming.
Gear up with the Battle Pass
Gear up for the gold hunting battles ahead with the Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass, featuring 100 tiers of new content including two new free weapons: the Marco 5 SMG and the UGM-8 LMG.
- Mark 5: This is the perfect SMG for aggressive players who keep moving. Best when hip-fired at close range, it’s also the first SMG in vanguard to present the Akimbo skills. Now let’s really talk.
- UGM-8: The UGM-8 combines mobility with firepower to allow operators to keep up with their teammates while providing suppressive fire. Use Gunsmith to further skew the gun towards power or speed and find the balance that works for you.
Purchase the Mercenaries of Fortune Battle Pass to instantly get the Task Force Immortal Operator Captain Butcher at Tier 0. Later in the shop, the other two Immortal Operators, Callum Hendry and Ikenna Olowe, appear.
Earn two more weapons – the Thrust Dagger and the Vargo-S Assault Rifle – by completing their in-game challenges or by purchasing their respective store packs later in the season.
Fortune’s Keep, Caldera POI updates and more in war zone
Fortune’s Keep is a mercenary hideout built on top of an otherwise peaceful town with a rich history, and it’s a fully original Resurgence map created by High Moon Studios. It is about the same size as Rebirth Island and features four distinct attractions:
- town, village: Inspired by colorful Mediterranean villages, this seaside community is dotted with cobblestone lanes and flat rooftops to traverse. An ancient fortress occupies the center of the city and invites operators to intense battles with its bell tower dominating this section of the map.
- smugglers cove: Smuggler’s Cove, true to its name, is stocked with supplies, including gas masks, which can come in handy in the event of a circle collapse. Prepare to explore the winding sea caves, grottos bathed in sunlight, a small cluster of fisherman’s huts and a lighthouse.
- To keep: The Keep, the island’s namesake, is a medieval fortress converted into a mercenary headquarters and hideout. Walk the ramparts and head to the watchtowers to defend the area from invaders, but know they can also easily fly over the walls with nearby transfer balloons or sneak into the area using the island’s tunnel system.
- winery: The Vineyard is a laid-back complex inspired by traditional three-lane maps with plenty of collecting opportunities. Head down to the basement to stock up on supplies, or travel to the nearby camp, which contains a helipad and several military tents.
Also prepare yourself for new challenges. Fortune’s Keep adds the Black Market Run Contract, which offers the ability to purchase off-market gear like the Sequencer Grenade and Nebula V Minigun. Track down groups of mercenaries in Cash Extraction and grab their bags of gold before they can unload them off the island.
Warehouse City comes to Caldera: Originally in Verdansk, Storage Town comes to Caldera and lies between the mines, the airfield, the village and the dig site. Search the sprawling complex for contracts and items, and use newfound verticality to quickly traverse the map. Expect over a dozen more point-of-interest changes in Caldera, in part due to the emergence of new mercenary camps. Maybe they’re looking for the alleged Mercenary Vaults?
Armored SUV (during the season): Get in the new armored SUV when you need to travel through enemy-held territory. This vehicle features a mounted driver’s weapon, a special rooftop turret seat, the ability to drop proximity mines, and a nitro boost for rapid acceleration.
ATMs: Hit ATMs in Plunder game modes for bags of gold that periodically spawn nearby. Gold spawns up to a maximum amount.
EMP grenade: Disable vehicles and disrupt enemy players and AI with the EMP Grenade, a non-lethal tool that creates a short-lived area of effect when it detonates. Affected players will be stripped of their HUD information while vehicles are temporarily disabled.
Multiplayer brings new maps, gun game
USS Texas 1945 (Launch): A reinterpretation of the map of the USS Texas from Call of Duty: World War II, USS Texas 1945 challenges the operators to fight on an offshore battleship. Designed for tense, long-range starboard and port combat, the map offers plenty of up-close action amidst its many cramped interiors. Stand at an outlet and do your best.
Havoc (in Season): Sit at a Pacific listening post in a dense village strewn with destruction in this small to medium sized map. Tall mountains and a vast landscape engulf the surroundings as you fight for the central building and along its fortifications by the creek.
The Return of Gun game: Gun Game makes its vanguard Debuting this season as the Blueprint Gun Game, a new twist that uses different weapon blueprints. Be the first operator to go through all 18 weapons to win the match. Eliminate an enemy to switch to the next weapon. Melee an enemy to reset a weapon and get the final Throwing Knife elimination to ensure victory. No perks, killstreaks, or custom loadouts allowed.
Mercenaries of Fortune also brings a new season of ranked play. Climb the ladder as you battle other competitors and earn new seasonal rewards along the way.
