According to Charlie Intel, the special playlist will support 6v6 and 10v10 gameplay on five maps:

  • Hovec Sawmill
  • Talsik Backlot
  • Aniyah Incursion
  • Hideout
  • Shoot House

The free weekend will begin at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on April 24, and come to an end at the same time on April 27. If you don't already have Warzone installed, you might want to get started on it now, though: The standalone Warzone client download can weigh in at up to 101GB, which Activision warned in March could take several hours to complete, "depending on bandwidth, service provider, [and] additional regional factors."

And if you're just new to Warzone, here are some other helpful guides to get you going: The Verdansk map guide, best builds for your M4A1 assault rifle, settings tweaks, and a breakdown of Warzone's support for crossplay with the PS4 and Xbox One.
