Call of Duty: Vanguard will have a free access week for its Multiplayer and Zombies mode from July 20 to July 26, Activision announced Tuesday.

From the new USS Texas 1945 map to Blueprint Gun Game, the round-based Shi No Numa Zombies map and more, here's a breakdown of the maps and modes players will be able to try out during the upcoming Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 4 free access week.

The one-week free access period begins Wednesday, July 20, at 1 p.m. ET and ends on Tuesday, July 26, at 11 a.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 Multiplayer and Zombies maps and modes available in the trial.

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

In the current season, Mercenaries of Fortune, the headliner for the game is the remastered Shi No Numa, the Zombies map originally released for Call of Duty: World at War that finally brought the classic, round-based Zombies experience to Vanguard.

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.
