Activision and Sledgehammer Games occasionally host free access periods that allow new players to try the Call of Duty Vanguard, but when is the next trial?

Season 2 Reloaded has kicked off in Call of Duty Vanguard and it has introduced the Armaguerra 43 SMG, a fresh 12v12 mode, and of course, new vehicles to the game.

While this is exciting for existing owners of the title, new players can often be put off by Vanguard’s upfront cost and instead turn to Warzone.

Well, in the hopes of bringing in new recruits to Vanguard’s community, the devs hold free trial periods after major updates that give new players a chance to try before they buy.


Of course, these free access periods don’t come around very often, so when is the next one set to start?
