The Call of Duty Modern Warfare Free Weekend has begun
As part of the new Season 5 launch for Call of Duty Modern Warfare, Activision has made it possible to play the game’s multiplayer modes for free this weekend. This means that you can enjoy a number of different playlists from MW over the coming days alongside COD Warzone. As many gamers will already know, Warzone is a Battle Royale spin-off that can be downloaded separately from Modern Warfare. It costs nothing to download and is regularly updated with new content, like Apex Legends, PUBG and Fortnite.
But being a spin off to one of the biggest franchises in the gaming world comes with its own advantages, including these free weekend events.
So if you’re interested in seeing what the other Modern Warfare multiplayer modes are like, now is the best time to do it.
MODERN WARFARE FREE WEEKEND DOWNLOAD ON PS4 AND XBOX
The good news is that Activision has made it very easy to download the new Call of Duty Modern Warfare multiplayer free weekend.
And if you already own COD Warzone, you won’t need to do anything special to gain access.
This week’s free Call of Duty multiplayer weekend is accessed by downloading Warzone and choosing the limited time event from the playlist menu.
It should be noted that Warzone is a chunky download and will likely take a while to download on your PS4, Xbox One or PC.
The free weekend has already started and is set to run until August 12, ending at around 6pm BST.
So it’s more of a free week than just a few days to play and enjoy the new Season 5 content.
Developers Infinity Ward has also announced that they will be offering Double XP throughout the event, meaning there will be plenty of gamers online looking to level up their new Battle Pass.
Here’s more information on today’s launch from Activision, who confirm in a new statement:
“Get more Modern Warfare, free starting on August 7 at 10AM PT until August 12 at 10AM PT. This action-packed free access period gives free-to-play Warzone users entrance to new Multiplayer content that debuted in Season Five including two new maps – Suldal Harbor and Petrov Oil Rig.
“Bring your skills to the Multiplayer moshpit and gear up for a battle where you’ll likely encounter more opposition than you do in a standard Battle Royale match.
“The moshpit will offer deathmatch modes like Team Deathmatch, a race to rack up 75 kills and Kill Confirmed, a 65-kill win condition where kills are only counted when they are confirmed by picking up enemy dog tags.
“Plus, there will be some objective modes: Domination, points are earned by holding objectives, first to 200 wins, and Hardpoint, points are earned by holding a single rotating objective, first to 250 wins.
“The weekend just got better as Infinity Ward has activated a triple feed from August 7 at 10AM PT to August 10 at 10AM PT. Earn Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass system tier progression in every Multiplayer match to advance up the tiers and level up your Operator and weapons.”
