Wanted to try out Vanguard? Been apprehensive about purchasing because it’s been bashed? All the bugs and exploits? Well the Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer is free this weekend. This means you have the perfect opportunity to give the online a go. This was announced in an official Activision blog posted on November 16th. Good timing too, as they just patched some things in the game yesterday.
What Time Does the Free Call of Duty: Mulitplayer Weekend Start?
The Call of Duty: Vanguard free multiplayer weekend begins November 18th at 1pmET / 6pm GMT and ends November 22nd at 1pm ET / 6pm GMT. The game isn’t available to pre-load, you’ll have to wait until the demo begins at that time to install the game’s multiplayer.
How to Download the Call of Duty Vanguard Free Multiplayer
While I can’t say for sure how the download process will work because the demo isn’t yet available, I can give some general advice based on how prior free multiplayer weekends for Black Ops Cold War worked.
- Go to the PlayStation Store or Microsoft Store on the web or on your platform of choice.
- Search for “Vanguard free.” It’s possible you may also see the demo offered on the front page of either storefront once the above-listed start time rolls around.
- The search should return some sort of Call of Duty: Vanguard free multiplayer demo.
- Download that demo and play.
On PC, simply open Battle.net and select “play free” from the Call of Duty: Vanguard tab.
What’s Included in Vanguard’s Free Access Weekend?
Unlike previous free multiplayer or Zombies events, the initial one for Call of Duty: Vanguard gives players access to the whole competitive multiplayer component of the game. That means that throughout the free multiplayer weekend, you’ll have access to every map, mode, and playlist available in the full purchase.
- Kill Confirmed
- Search and Destroy
- Champion Hill
- Das Haus
- Desert Siege
- Eagle’s Nest
- Hotel Royal
- Numa Numa
- Red Star
- Sub Pens
- Champion Hill
As long as this demo maintains the functionality of other free Call of Duty weekends, any progress you make during the trial period will carry over to the full game.
