The multiplayer component for Call of Duty: Vanguard, the latest entry in the Call of Duty franchise, is free to play for a week.
Call of Duty: Vanguard has just announced that it is going free-to-play for a limited time. Gamers will have a chance to try out each of Call of Duty: Vanguard's maps and modes as well as participate in the new Season 3 content.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is the latest entry in the highly successful Call of Duty franchise. Having released in 2021, the game received middling reviews party due to the heavily used World War 2 setting. Despite the disappointing sales, the developers have continued to improve the game with additional content including new maps, weapons, and new Operators. One important addition was the highly requested Trophy System equipment, along with giving players a means of unlocking the equipment regardless of their battle pass status or having to endure tedious challenges. This has given players an important set of progression goals aside from the common battle pass model.

Call of Duty: Vanguard's multiplayer component will be free to play in its entirety until May 24. This includes over 20 maps, 10 game modes, Arms Race, Ship Haus, and the recently added Mayhem multiplayer map that came with Season 3 last month. The Mayhem multiplayer map has players stomping around a vintage monster movie set, feeling like giants as they fight among a miniature metropolis. It's recommended to bring along a Trophy System so players can be focused on fighting the enemy rather than on dodging grenades.
Free players will have full access to all the included classic Call of Duty maps as well, such as Dome from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Castle from Call of Duty: World at War, and the legendary Shipment map introduced in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Free players can also compete in Arms Race, a large-map mode where players must capture all the bases to win. Operators respawn at captured bases where they can rearm, grab a vehicle, and head off to the next enemy base. Cash can be earned by capturing objectives or from looting defeated players, allowing players to purchase weapons, equipment, Killstreaks, Field Upgrades, or Custom Loadouts.
The free-to-play period has just begun and will only last for a week, so players will want to begin downloading the roughly 56GB installation as soon as possible to maximize their time in-game. This should be a worthwhile distraction for first-person-shooter fans as the wait for the highly anticipated Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 continues.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
