It offers access to a limited portion of Modern Warfare’s multiplayer component, which is accessible through free-to-play game Call of Duty: Warzone.

Developer Infinity Ward implemented new measures this week designed to combat cheating in Modern Warfare and Warzone.
Players who report suspected cheaters will now receive confirmation in-game when a player is banned, while matchmaking has been updated to group suspected cheaters together.
A Modern Warfare and Warzone update update released on Tuesday included the following general fixes:
- Fixed a bug where players were able to use Game Battles to make custom weapon blueprints that they can then use in MP or Warzone.
- Upon picking up a dropped Renetti, the initial raise audio would be heard globally. This has been fixed.
- Fix for an invincibility exploit after reviving a teammate in Warzone.
- Fixed a bug where two watches would be seen on the wrist of the CTSFO 1 Mil-Sim Operator.
A mandatory Modern Warfare and Warzone update will also be released for PS4 and Xbox One on April 28, according to Activision Support. It will require players to download a data pack, although its contents have yet to be detailed.
