Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Best Overall Response (BOR) According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST Version 1.1) as Evaluated by Independent Review Committee [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to planned final assessment for unconfirmed BOR, expected at 26 months ]
  2. Progression-free Survival (PFS) According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST Version 1.1) as Evaluated by Independent Review Committee [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to planned final assessment, expected at 37 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurrences of Treatment-emergent Adverse Events (TEAEs) and Treatment-related AEs According to National Cancer Institute-Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (NCI-CTCAE) version 5.0 [ Time Frame: Randomization up to the last safety follow-up visit, expected at approximately 47 months ]
  2. Overall Survival (OS) Time [ Time Frame: Randomization up to 49 months ]
  3. Best Overall Response (BOR) According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST Version 1.1) as Evaluated by Investigator [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to planned final assessment for unconfirmed BOR, expected at 26 months ]
  4. Progression-free Survival (PFS) According to Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST Version 1.1) as Evaluated by Investigator [ Time Frame: Time from randomization to planned final assessment, expected at 37 months ]
  5. Duration of Response Assessed from Complete Response (CR) or Partial Response (PR) according to RECIST 1.1 Assessed by Independent Review Committee [ Time Frame: Time from CR or PR to planned assessment, expected at 37 months ]
  6. Concentration of M7284 at the end of Infusion (Ceoi) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, 30 minutes post-dose at Week 1, 3, 5, 7 and 6 weekly during treatment up to safety follow-up visit (28 days after last dose, assessed up to 47 months) ]
  7. Concentration of M7284 at the end of the Dosing Interval (C trough) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose, 30 minutes post-dose at Week 1, 3, 5, 7 and 6 weekly during treatment up to safety follow-up visit (28 days after last dose, assessed up to 47 months) ]
  8. Immunogenicity as measured by Anti-drug Antibodies Concentration [ Time Frame: Randomization up to safety follow-up visit (28 days post last-dose of study drug administration, assessed up to 47 months) ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically confirmed diagnosis of advanced NSCLC
  • Have not received prior systemic therapy treatment for their advanced/Stage four NSCLC. Completion of treatment with cytotoxic chemotherapy, biological therapy, and/or radiation as part of neoadjuvant/adjuvant therapy is allowed as long as therapy was completed at least 6 months prior to the diagnosis of metastatic disease. Confirmation of resolution of toxic effects of previous neoadjuvant/adjuvant chemotherapy therapy to Grade less than or equal to 1. For radiation toxicity or prior major surgeries, participants should have recovered from side effects and/or complications.
  • Have measurable disease based on RECIST 1.1
  • Have a life expectancy of at least 3 months
  • Availability of either tumor archival material (less than 6 months old) or fresh biopsies collected within 28 days (excluding bone biopsies) before the first dose is mandatory to determine PD-L1 expression level prior to enrollment
  • PD-L1 high status as determined by central PD-L1 test or by prior testing using PD-L1 immunohistochemistry 22C3 pharmDx assay
  • Other protocol defined inclusion criteria could apply

Exclusion Criteria:

  • The participant's tumor harbors an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) sensitizing (activating) mutation, anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) translocation, ROS1 rearrangement, or BRAF V600E mutation, if targeted therapy is locally approved
  • Has received major surgery within 4 weeks prior to the first dose of study intervention; received thoracic radiation therapy of greater than 30 units of gray (Gy) within 6 months prior to the first dose of study
  • Known severe hypersensitivity to investigational products (M7824 or pembrolizumab), or any components in their formulations
  • Previous malignant disease (other than the target malignancy to be investigated in this study) within the last 3 years
  • Other protocol defined exclusion criteria could apply
