General Fixes

  • Various map fixes

Running from today at 10am PT until Friday, March 17, the Drop Zone playlist returns to Infinite Warfare.

If you want to play Infinite Warfare without spending any money, the Free Trial is now live on PS4 and Xbox One, weighing in at about 65GB. As Activision adds, “There is currently no end date to the Free Trial,” and “all progress and experience that you earn in the Trial will carry over if you choose to purchase any version of the full game.”

In other Call of Duty news, it was announced this week that Modern Warfare Remastered is getting the Variety Map Pack on March 21 for $15.
