Activision has announced that Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's multiplayer will once again be available to play for free all weekend. Starting tonight (Friday, April 24th) at 6pm, and ending on Monday April 27th at 6pm, you can bask in the warm glow of a selection of the popular 2019 shooter's various multiplayer modes.
It was only a few weeks ago that Activision last offered players the chance to get involved with a free weekend, so it's nice to see the publisher back at it so soon. One suspects it has something to do with attempting to offer people incentives to stay indoors, although Activision hasn't explicitly said the free weekend has anything to do with the current crisis.
Just like last time, your access to the multiplayer weekend will only be available through the lobby of the free-to-play Warzone spinoff. If you haven't already got the Call Of Duty battle royale downloaded and installed, I suggest you get moving on it now. It's a pretty chonky download on all platforms, and will likely take the better part of your day to get ready.
Developer Infinity Ward has put together a special playlist that can be accessed through Warzone, containing five maps from Modern Warfare. You'll be able to play around in 6v6 and 10v10 matches across Hovec Sawmill, Talsik Backlot, Aniyah Incursion, Hideout, and Shoot House.

"Now's your chance to get to know Modern Warfare Multiplayer combat in two concentrated, visually stunning settings," Activision wrote. "You'll be able to experience 6v6 and 10v10 gameplay with Modern Warfare and free-to-play Warzone players alike. And, you'll get a deeper knowledge of the weapons and equipment you've encountered in Warzone."
If you've been going hard on Warzone but have yet to check out Modern Warfare, they're two similar but massively different experiences. Modern Warfare is, for the most part, much more focused on quicker-paced and more aggressive gameplay, so mastering that should come in handy for any Warzone players out there who have the slower more methodical approach down, but fall apart under pressure.
In other Call Of Duty news, Infinity Ward recently outlined a series of tough new measures designed to weed out cheaters once and for all. It's a recurring problem particularly in Warzone, and has even led to players on console actively avoiding crossplay with PC users where the issue is at its worst.
