While the free weekend won’t give you access to everything, you’ll still be able to get a nice taste for what you’re missing in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare as you’ll be able to test out five of its game modes and five of its maps.
The game modes available include everyone’s favorite, Team Deathmatch, along with Domination, Hardpoint, Kill Confirmed, and Headquarters. The maps on offer in the free demo include Hovec Sawmill, Khandor Hideout, Aniyah Incursion, Shoot House, and Talski Backlot.
In the press release from Activision, the free weekend is described as follows...
“Starting at 10:00 a.m. (PST) April 24, free-to-play Warzone players can experience the latest additions to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer – free. For one weekend only, the entire online community can face off in an all-new Multiplayer Moshpit. Play 6v6 Multiplayer modes on five popular maps, including three NEW Season Three maps, until 10:00 a.m. (PST) April 27.”
The press release goes on to explain how Warzone players can take advantage of the free weekend with an easy way to jump in and play the available Modern Warfare multiplayer maps and modes.
"This weekend only, anyone who has free-to-play Warzone can navigate to the Lobby and join the Multiplayer action, FREE. In the Warzone Lobby, you’ll see the 24/7 Playlist.
