Infinity Ward are opening the servers once again for Modern Warfare, welcoming more players to try out the multiplayer for free on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

While Modern Warfare's Warzone battle royale mode is free-to-play, those who have the full game purchased can level up their weapons much more quickly by using them in multiplayer. Now, Infinity Ward have temporarily taken down that paywall to let everyone get a taste of MP.

Those interested in trying out the multiplayer can do so from Friday, April 24 at 10AM PST through Monday, April 27 at 10AM PST, giving everyone three-straight days to play the game.

It’s a straightforward process to get into Modern Warfare’s Multiplayer through the free-to-download Warzone client.

Depending on your console of choice, you’ll have to navigate to the Warzone listing on either Xbox Live, the PlayStation Store, or Battle.net for PC.

After the client is on your platform, you’ll need to wait until the free access weekend window opens, after which there will be a special playlist to queue up to the multiplayer instead of the battle royale.

To get you prepared for the free multiplayer period, Infinity Ward gave a rundown of the limited maps and modes available in the trial.

During the weekend, going into the Warzone client will give players an option to select the free-access playlist with maps like Hovec Sawmill, Talsik Backlot, Aniyah Incursion, Hideout, and Shoot House.

The playlist will include 6v6 and 10v10 games for players to get a feel for both small-scale engagements and larger firefights to really get the feel of Call of Duty’s intense gameplay.

If you've been playing Warzone, this gives you the perfect opportunity to level up your guns and unlock camos and attachments at a much faster rate.

Modern Warfare’s free access period will only be live for three days, so make sure you download and get your account ready before the end of the week festivities.
