All Call of Duty: Warzone player will gain access to the Modern Warfare multiplayer this weekend. Since Warzone is free-to-play, all it requires is a large amount of hard drive space.

According to a blog post from Activision, the free weekend starts April 3, 12pm CT, and will end April 6 at the same time. Players will get 72 hours to try out game modes including Team Deathmatch, Domination, and Hardpoint in six vs. six or 10-vs.-10 firefights.

The much faster pace of Modern Warfare‘s multiplayer compared to the humongous Warzone means that this could be a great time to test out loadout and perk combinations.

If you like Modern Warfare enough to make it a permanent addition to your library, Activision says that “any items – purchased or earned, player rank, weapon rank, and Battle Pass progression gained in free-to-play Warzone will carry over to the full version of Modern Warfare once purchased.” Players will be able to then jump into the game’s gritty single-player campaign or try their hand at the cooperative Special Ops.

Digital purchases will also grant the player with the XRK Weapons pack that comes with a Legendary assault rifle and a handgun blueprint.
