Overall, the season is fairly sparse in terms of content compared to what we’ve seen in the past. Vanguard multiplayer is only receiving one new multiplayer map at the start of Season 5, in addition to a new Zombies experience. While there are five new weapons in Season 5, only three are coming at launch; the Valois Revolver likely won’t see much attention, but the EX1 is an intriguing addition. The EX1 is a remastered version of the EM1, a laser rifle from Infinite Warfare — as of writing, it’s unclear if the EX1 will have all of the same traits as its predecessor.
The Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 update goes live on Aug. 24 at 12 PM ET. Fans will see smaller updates arrive in Vanguard and Warzone in the days leading up to the full launch of Season 5.
