Starting tomorrow night, Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer will be available to play for free on consoles and PC for an entire weekend.

Activision has confirmed that. The free version will be available from tomorrow 19:00 CET and will run until November 22.

Vanguard faces a lot of competition in the form of Battlefield 2042 which is playable in Early Access since last week and the Monday suddenly launched free multiplayer of Halo Infinite.
