Call of Duty Vanguard PS4 vs. PS5 Comparison: Is There a Massive Difference?
Call of Duty Vanguard has been released for both PS4 and PS5. In this article and video, we will compare both versions of the game.
Sledgehammer Games has developed this latest iteration of Call of Duty that runs on the same Modern Warfare engine that was released back in 2019. It offers a great scalability option for both the last-generation and current-generation consoles.

First up, the texture quality between the PS4 and PS5 versions is like going from high to ultra settings, but it will be hard to spot in actual gameplay. You can notice it in the textures of the clothes, character models, and so on. The PS5 version sports a higher quality texture than its predecessor. You will also get a higher resolution on the PS5 compared to the PS4 and PS4 Pro.
Shadows are rendered with a more detailed approach on the PS5 thus making them look softer in comparison to the PS4. This applies to a couple of other effects too including depth-of-field, particle effects when firing weapons, and so on. Again, these kinds of details are hard to spot in gameplay but you do feel their impact if you go from PS4 to the PS5.
The other major difference is perhaps in the loading. The PS4 version can take a whole minute to load while the PS5 can do it within seconds. It is truly remarkable especially when you play both versions side by side. Check the video above to find a loading comparison between both platforms.
The one difference that does carry an impact on the gameplay experience is DualSense support and Haptic Feedback. Together, these two provide an immersive experience that can’t be replicated on the PS4.
Call of Duty Vanguard still plays decently on the last-generation consoles. You should be in no hurry to upgrade your consoles, and you get the same 60 FPS performance as the PS5 or Xbox Series. In the case of the current-generation consoles, you do get 120 FPS support in addition to 60 FPS.
