The fifth season of Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will officially kick off on Wednesday , August 5, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Although some news began to leak in recent weeks, today Activision confirmed a large part of them through an impressive trailer . As for the battle royale specifically, the Verdansk map will finally undergo some major changes to improve the player experience.
As we anticipated it for you a couple of months ago, finally the Verdansk stadium “will open its doors” to turn its stands and soccer field into yet another area of confrontation. Even more interesting is that you will have the opportunity to enter the arena from the top, as the dome was completely destroyed after an explosion. In addition, it is confirmed that a train will cross the map of Call of Duty: Warzone ; but be careful, because it will destroy anything that crosses your path.
The most attractive thing about the fifth season, however, is the incorporation of a third faction . That’s right, Activision had this surprise very well kept and the Call of Duty: Warzone community is receiving it with open arms. The name of the aforementioned is Shadow Company , and if you are a fan of the franchise, you surely remember it for appearing in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 . It is an elite military organization led, this time, by Marcus Ortega .
New in ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’
Obviously, the battle royale will not be the only one to receive news. The multiplayer section of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will embrace two new maps for modes 6 vs. 6: Suldal Harbor and Petrov Oil Rig . The latter is an old acquaintance from Call of Duty 4 . For its part, Ground War will add the Verdansk International Airport scenario, while Gunfight will do the same with Livestock. Remember that the content will be free.
The fifth season of Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will offer a new Season Pass with new aspects of weapons, key chains, emblems and, of course, operators. Throughout your progress in the Season Pass, you’ll be able to unlock Rozlin “Roze” Helms and Marcus “Lerch” Ortega , both members of Shadow Company. The character rooster is complete with the additions of Lerch (US Marine) and Velikan .
