Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II Five-Day Free Access Starts March 17

Battle amongst the wintry peaks surrounding the Himmelmatt Expo; skirmish through the cargo ship containers on the compact, fan-favorite Shipment; and join Captain Price, Farah, and Gaz as they embark to Atomgrad in Special Ops Raid Episode 01. 

Following the launch of Season 02 Reloaded, the Free Access period will feature a limited selection of Multiplayer and Special Ops experiences for non-game owners to get into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II

From March 17 through 21, Free Access players can battle across six Multiplayer maps and a variety of game modes alongside the first Co-Op Raid. Invite your friends and family to compete, whether they’ve been your squadmates in Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 or they’re jumping into the fray for the first time.

  • All or Nothing. Your goal is to rack up 20 eliminations with only Throwing Knives and a pistol
  • One in the Chamber where everyone receives a handgun with a single bullet; bring down opponents to add ammo to your arsenal

Try your hand at completing the first ever Call of Duty Raid in Special Ops Raid Episode 01. 

Team up with two other players and take on the roles of Captain Price, Farah, and Gaz as they infiltrate an underground bunker in search of Echo Team. Throughout the Raid, players must coordinate their every move to overcome the traps, environmental hazards, and enemy forces encountered along the way. 

Complete Atomgrad Episode 01 to unlock a new Operator Skin for Gaz along with a Mystery Case holding one of several rewards from a greater Raid loot table. 

Note that the Free Access period includes only the standard difficulty version of Atomgrad Episode 01, though that’s plenty tough enough against all but the most skilled teams.
