Following the launch of Season 2 Reloaded, Activision is inviting everyone to play for free.


Activision has announced a free multiplayer period for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and it starts just after the Season 2 Reloaded update arrives, making it a great time to jump in.

The free access period starts March 16 (a day after Season 2 Reloaded launches on March 15) and lets players try six multiplayer maps--including the new one Himmelatt Expo--a handful of game modes, and the game's first co-op raid. The free access period wraps up on March 20.
