If you’ve been holding off on buying Modern Warfare 2 so far, it looks like you have a chance to play it for free next month.
Although the game was a huge commercial success, there are still a few players who refuse to be persuaded to put their hands in their pockets and pay £70 for it.
Anyone who has already sniffed Warzone 2 and is unsure whether they should also opt for Modern Warfare 2 should perhaps wait until the free weekend before making their decision.
A new leak claims that this will be the first of many upcoming free weekends beginning after the game’s mid-season update. Although almost certainly only the multiplayer will be free, not also the campaign mode.
In the UK, free access is said to start Thursday 15th December into the early hours of Monday 19th December – although no official announcement has yet been made.
This information was first reported by well-known Call of Duty leaker Tom Henderson, who obtained the information from sources “with knowledge of Activision’s plans.”
So far, there are no details on what else is coming with the mid-season update, other than that the multiplayer map Shipment is set to make a comeback.
Even after hearing about the free weekend, some Call Of Duty fans still insist they’re unlikely to buy the full game.
I just can’t imagine paying €70 for a video game. I wonder how many they lost with that price increase

Another player even suggested that Activision should play the multiplayer aspect of Modern Warfare 2 for free and only charge for the campaign to lower the cost of the game.
I think they should play the multiplayer for free and only charge for the campaign to be honest. If they were responsible this could work, especially if they choose less abusive monetization systems like those in TF2, CS:GO or Fortnite. It could work.

In addition to the Midseason Update for Modern Warfare 2, Activision also plans to release an update for Black Ops Cold War on December 6, according to Henderson.
However, it is still unclear if this will be a standard patch or will add new content to the game in 2020.
Meanwhile, if you’ve been following the World Cup but are also a Call of Duty fan, Modern Warfare 2 will also reportedly get a new mode called COD Ball.
In this mode, you can drive off-road vehicles to score goals with a big ball, similar to how Rocket League works.
For now, you can get a glimpse of what lies beneath Operator Ghost’s mask, as his entire face has been leaked by a dataminer on Reddit.
