CoD: Modern Warfare 3 Free Trial Coming Soon, Letting You Check Out Season 3 Content

Capture the Flag is one of the new modes on the way for the FPS.


Activision hopes to capture your attention by letting you play Capture the Flag for free with an upcoming multiplayer trial for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The offering--which will run from April 4-8--will also include access to the Zombies and Hordepoint modes. The latter is a twist on Hardpoint, as the undead spawn on reskinned sci-fi maps like Tetanus.

The Modern Warfare 3 free trial starts right after Season 3 launches April 3 for the game. That means you can check out some of the new additions to the FPS, such as Capture the Flag. Three other game modes will arrive throughout the season: One in the Chamber, Minefield, and Escort. A 6-vs.-6 map called Emergency will also be introduced next week and playable for the free trial. The five other battlegrounds on offer will include fan-favorite Rust.
