Community Update - April 24


It’s been a busy week and we’re just getting started. Let’s take a look at what’s been going on at Raven Software and Infinity Ward!

Modern Warfare Multiplayer Free Access Weekend: Starting at 10AM PT April 24, free-to-play Warzone players can experience the latest additions to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Multiplayer – free. For one weekend only, the entire online community can face off in an all-new Multiplayer Moshpit. Play 6v6 Multiplayer modes on five popular maps, including three NEW Season Three maps, until 10AM PT April 27.


Cheaters Not Welcomed in Call of Duty: WarzoneThere’s no place for cheating in games. Warzone has zero tolerance for cheaters.

Starting this week, players in Warzone and Modern Warfare who report suspected cheaters will receive confirmation in-game when a player is banned. We’ve also deployed additional dedicated security updates, updated matchmaking to match suspected cheaters together, and increase our resources across backend tech, studio, and enforcement teams.

Soon, we’ll deploy a report-a-player functionality to the killcam and spectator modes.


What are we working on?

Currently targeting April 28th for our next update. Patch notes will go out shortly before the update begins rolling out.

Next week also holds some playlist updates. Modern Warfare will see Shoot the Ship 24/7 (now with Cranked and Grind in the mix!) along with some fun Gunfight variations. There’s also something new to chase. Can we interest you in Obsidian camo? Or maybe you want to mix and match blueprint weapon attachments to your heart’s content, even on another blueprint weapon…

DATA PACK DOWNLOAD: Coming April 28th

Own Modern Warfare on PS4 or Xbox?

Tuesday’s update includes a required download for PlayStation and Xbox, about 15gbs, and is required to access Modern Warfare.

Once you install the patch and select a mode, (multiplayer, campaign, Special Operations, etc.), you will be brought to a game install menu. Here, you’ll need to download Data Pack 1 from this menu. Once the download is complete, you will need to hard close and reopen the game application.
