Activision has confirmed that a free version of Call of Duty Modern Warfare will be available to play this weekend on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Call of Duty Modern Warfare Free Access weekend is launching on Friday, April 3 and will be available on all platforms. And the best part is that MW will be available to play through COD Warzone, meaning there shouldn’t be a huge download to go through.
There might still be a few hoops to jump through and perhaps a new patch will be waiting for Warzone gamers switching over to MW multiplayer modes.
But past that hurdle, everyone should have access to Modern Warfare for free on April 3, 2020.
Gamers on Xbox One will need to make sure they have an Xbox Live Gold subscription, but that seems pretty likely if you have been playing Warzone.
WHEN DOES THE CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE FREE WEEKEND START?
Call of Duty Modern Warfare free access starts on April 3, 2020 on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
And Activision has also confirmed that the big MW update will be going live at around 6pm, GMT.
That will be 10am PT for those COD gamers eager to start playing in the United States.
Developers Infinity Ward has also confirmed that the Modern Warfare Free Access Weekend will end at the same time on April 6, 2020.
A message from Activision explains: “Starting at 10AM PT on April 3, free-to-play Warzone players can jump into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer for free.
“That’s right: all Modern Warfare and free-to-play Warzone players can square up together in a varied and fast-paced Multiplayer Moshpit, all weekend long.
“If you haven’t played Modern Warfare Multiplayer, now’s the chance to see what you’ve missed. Experience the world-class gameplay, deep weapon customization, and gritty, photorealistic environments that make Modern Warfare Multiplayer the ultimate online playground.”
Activision has also confirmed the playlists that will be available to play during the free Modern Warfare weekend.
“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 ‘Stocked Up, Locked Down’ 24/7 Playlist. Get ready for round-the-clock combat on two original Modern Warfare maps: Atlas Superstore and Shoot House.
“In true Moshpit style, players will have the opportunity to play a variety of team-based, game modes, like Team Deathmatch, Domination, Hardpoint, and more. And, with such a varied mix of game modes, players will get the chance to explore all parts of each map as they interact in different mode environments.
“This weekend is the perfect opportunity to experiment with Killstreaks, perks, and Field Upgrades at a deeper level. Get to know these loadout components as you deploy them in Multiplayer, and you’ll soon handle them with ease in Warzone. Use this weekend to become a Cluster Strike master, an ‘Overkill’ perk powerhouse, or a badass boss with a ‘Deployable Barrier.’”
