Call of Duty Vanguard is off to a flying start and it looks like things are only set to improve through Season One and beyond - it's going to be a big year for Call of Duty. One thing that's going to make it all better is the addition of Shipment. Yes, that Shipment.

Here's what you need to know about Shipment coming to Call of Duty Vanguard, when it's due to release, and everything else.

FREE MULTI WEEKEND - Time to jump into it!

Vanguard is reportedly hosting a Multiplayer Free Access weekend from November 18th and November 22nd. This is conveniently just after Shipment is slated to drop - so, it's the perfect time to check out Vanguard if you're on the fence or jump into lobbies packed with new players if you're already playing.

It's worth noting that we haven't seen this announcement pop up on an official social media account yet, so take it with a pinch of salt. However, Vanguard's sales haven't been as good as Black Ops Cold War's, so it isn't surprising they're giving people a chance to check it out before they buy.

SHIPMENT - When does it drop?

Sledgehammer Games' latest take on Shipment is due to arrive in Vanguard on November 17th. At the moment we don't have a specific time, but we're guessing it's going to drop at the same time as Vanguard's other title updates...

  • 10:00 November 17th PST
  • 13:00 November 17th EST
  • 18:00 November 17th GMT

Shipment is going to be just one new addition, slated as being part of some "free special deliveries in the days leading up to Season One."

" Headlining that batch of free content is Shipment, the classic frenetic Multiplayer experience re-fitted for Vanguard, currently scheduled for a November 17 arrival. Newcomers and veterans alike can ready up for a fresh take on the map that’s entertained Call of Duty fans for over a decade, providing all Vanguard players a chaotic playground for destruction."

PLAYLIST UPDATE - Surely, Das Shiphaus is coming...

Sledgehammer Games has been throwing a lot of Playlist Updates at Vanguard during the preseason - with Das Haus 24/7, Blitz Zone, and Tactical Tuesdays being just a few...

With Das Haus, one of the smallest maps available, being so popular with fans... We wouldn't be surprised if we're getting a Shipment 24/7 playlist or a playlist that throws Das Haus and Shipment together - like Shoot the Ship in Modern Warfare 2019.

We don't know for sure if this is the case, but we should see something on social media in the next couple of days. Sledgehammer Games, though, seems to update us without much warning so it could be another day or two before we have confirmation of the Playlist Update dropping with Shipment.
