Call of Duty: Vanguard will have another free access week for its multiplayer mode from May 18 to May 24, Activision announced Tuesday.

From the new Mayhem Multiplayer map to Arms Race and Ship Haus, here's a breakdown of the maps and modes players will be able to try out during the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 3 multiplayer free access week.

The one-week free access period begins Wednesday, May 18, at 1 p.m. ET and ends on Tuesday, May 24, at 12 p.m. ET.

An additional download is required to play.

Being that the idea here is to give players who have yet to buy the game a full taste of what Vanguard has to offer, the free access period will include all of the game's maps and modes available in the trial.

Players can experience as much of the Vanguard multiplayer experience as they want, and if they decide to purchase the full game, all of their unlocks will carry over as well.

In Vanguard's current season, Classified Arms, the headliner for the multiplayer mode is the all-new Mayhem map, a 1950s monster movie set that follows in the footsteps of the series' classic CQB oriented maps like Nuketown from Black Ops or Shipment from Modern Warfare.

At the time of publication, Vanguard is on sale on both Battle.net and the Microsoft Store for those looking to pick up the full title this month.
