    When Activision launched Call of Duty: Modern Warfare last month, it made a promise to gamers. Even though there’s a Season Pass in place, the company vowed to offer free content, including maps and modes. Well, it looks like Activision is keeping that promise, with the game’s latest downloadable content coming for free this Friday.

    What’s coming to Modern Warfare this week?

    In a new tweet, the official Call of Duty Twitter account confirmed that two new maps will join the game on November 8. The image below provides a good idea of how they’ll look.

    The first one is specifically for Ground War, under the name Krovnik Farmland. It looks to take place in an abandoned town of some kind, though it provides great space for a good boots-to-ground battle.

    Then there’s Shoot House, a new multiplayer map. From the looks of it, this one seems to take place in a combat zone, with a helicopter looming overhead.

    Finally, the Hardpoint mode will finally make its debut in Modern Warfare. Initially introduced way back in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, this mode is a real challenge. It asks teams to secure a “hardpoint” on the map while fighting off enemies trying to claim it. The more players stay in the area, the more points they can earn.

    While the specifics of how Hardpoint will work in Modern Warfare aren’t available just yet, it should be familiar to fans of the series.

    Activision has not yet provided an exact time for when the content will drop, but it will likely arrive sometime in the morning. Players will want to keep an eye out for the latest update, then jump in and indulge. We’ll see you in the Shoot House!

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now, exclusively through Battle.net.
