Activision Unveils Free Multiplayer Weekend for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Gaming giant Activision has unveiled exciting news for Call of Duty enthusiasts, announcing a complimentary multiplayer weekend for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Players across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC platforms will have the opportunity to engage in the game's multiplayer offerings without any cost, beginning from December 14 at 10 am PT until December 18 at the same corresponding times.
The trial period promises an ample selection of Modern Warfare 3's multiplayer content. Participants will have access to an array of the game's remastered maps, along with the freshly introduced Season 1 map, Meat, which is thematically set within a slaughterhouse located at California's Port of Oakland.
Those partaking in the trial will be able to immerse themselves in the intensity of three Ground War maps and Modern Warfare's own Zombies mode, along with the War gameplay variant.
Outlined in the list of free multiplayer trial features are:
- The 6v6 Core Maps, which encompass classics such as Terminal and Rust, as well as Highrise, Shipment, Afghan, and the newly added Meat.
- Ground War Maps, which include Popov Power, Orlov Military Base, and Levin Resort.
- A scope of Core Modes, featuring Team Deathmatch and Domination, supplemented by the likes of Hardpoint and Ground War, among others.
- Exciting Playlists like Rustment 24/7, combining Shipment and Rust, and the thrilling 6v6 Moshpit, which features a rotation including Highrise, Meat, Afghan, and Terminal, plus the Ground War and Modern Warfare Zombies.
Season 1 of Modern Warfare 3 debuted just a week prior, ushering in a fresh wave of content that spans multiplayer, Zombies, and Warzone modes. Additions include three brand-new 6v6 multiplayer maps, several returning multiplayer modes, including Gunfight and the engaging Infected, Headquarters, and All or Nothing modes, a continuation of the Zombies narrative with a new story act and Dark Aether Rifts, and the Urzikstan map for Warzone.
Despite taking the top spot on the UK software sales chart in November, Modern Warfare 3's launch didn't reach the heights of its predecessor, Modern Warfare 2. Data gathered across physical and digital sales within the first three weeks post-release indicated that Modern Warfare 3 trailed by 38% in sales compared to the figures achieved by Modern Warfare 2 after its launch in October of the previous year.
