Call Of Duty’s free week starts now.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is going free-to-play for Memorial Day weekend, though it’s a longer free period than usual. Of course, only portions of the game are actually going to be free to all players but it’s still a large chunk of the game.
Maybe you played a beta or a different free weekend and want to see if the game has improved (it has) or maybe this will be your first time. Either way, I recommend downloading it and giving Cold War a shot. The game has grown on me enormously since I first played the Alpha. Over the past six months since it released, it’s become my go-to Call Of Duty. Modern Warfare feels way too slow after playing this one relentlessly.
Strange how that works—how one can go from skeptic to fan like that. But Treyarch has done a bang-up job improving the game (minus some problems like split-screen) while Modern Warfare has been led out to pasture. Half the time I can’t even get into matches in Modern Warfare. It’s a real shame and probably deserves its own post.
In any case, Cold War has no issues with logging in or matchmaking so download the free version starting today at 10am PT / 1pm ET. It will remain free until Tuesday June 1st so it’s not quite a full week (lame) but it’s definitely longer than a weekend. The free Memorial Day weekend trial is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC. You’ll be able to find free trials in the console stores, and a Play Free option on Battle.net.
Players will be able to try out all of the multiplayer maps and modes as well as the open world Zombies mode Outbreak which is a lot of fun. My favorite, of course, remains the excellent 2v2 Gunfight mode so definitely give that a go.

In any case, free weekend starts soon and lasts five whole days which is pretty cool. This coincides with yet another big 2XP event as well, so level up those guns and Battle Passes and have a great Memorial Day weekend!
