Normally the game retails for between £45 and £60.
But from now until Thursday, July 29, the game is accessible for free.
Or at least most of the game – the Campaign can’t be played.
However, gamers will be able enjoy the action-packed Multiplayer mode.
And you can try your hand at Zombies too.
You’ll simply need to load up Warzone – which is always free – and access it from there.
Modes in the free-to-play week include Team Deathmatch, NukeJacked 24/7, Party Games, Paintball Moshpit and Throwback Moshpit.
You’ll even have access to the new Mauer der Toten map from the latest Season 4 update.
Importantly, any progress you make will be retained if you go on to buy the game.
Better yet, Activision is running a Double XP event this weekend, which will apply to your Cold War Multiplayer shenanigans.
It begins at 6pm UK time on Friday, and ends on Monday, July 26.
Cold War is the latest iteration of Call of Duty, and was developed by Treyarch and Raven Software.
The game runs on the PS4, Xbox One, PC and the new PS5 and Xbox Series X.
The Cold War was a period of major tension between the USA and Soviet Union, but wasn’t an outright war in the conventional sense.
Instead, both nations supported “proxy wars” – regional conflicts used to gain global influence.
And the fact that both nations controlled nuclear weaponry meant that neither side was willing to risk a war proper.
The period is generally said to have run from 1947 through to 1991 – when the Soviet Union was dissolved.
Of course, once the trial is over, you’ll have to purchase the game at full price.
All prices in this article were correct at the time of writing, but may have since changed. Always do your own research before making any purchase.
