Sledgehammer Games has announced that Call of Duty: WWII's Valkyrie map will be dished out free to players this weekend. 

For those who don't speak CoD, Valkyrie was released as part of the first-person shooter's Resistance expansion, which was released earlier in the year. As such, the only way you could play the map was by purchasing the DLC.

You won't need to spend a penny to play it this week though. From May 25 at 6.00pm BST (10.00am PST) until May 29 at 6.00pm BST, Sledgehammer's running a special Open Access Weekend for Valkyrie, meaning you can get a taste of the action free of charge.

Call of Duty: WWII was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in November last year, and gave the series its biggest sales in three years. The latest batch of DLC, War Machine, adds a new Egypt and Dunkirk map as well as a brand new chapter in the shambling Zombies mode.

Activision recently unveiled this year's entry in the long-running military franchise, the battle royale-equipped Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
