Call of Duty
The long-awaited Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 1 is finally revealed. Launching on December 3, the first season will introduce a new Battle Pass, several new and remade maps, and tons of other content. As with any content in Modern Warfare, all of this is free for users across any system. However, there is a Premium version of the Battle Pass that will likely cost $10. Players can expect a large update to go live sometime on December 3.
“The biggest free content drop in Call of Duty history”
Unlike in previous years, Call of Duty will move over to a season-based structure. Rather than release content at random times, this allows players to know exactly how much time they have until the next content drop. The seasons will work similarly to in other popular multiplayer titles, like Fortnite and PUBG.
Some of the content coming in Season 1 has already been leaked, though there are some surprises. Here’s a rundown of everything that’s coming with Modern Warfare Season 1:
Ground War map
- Cargo (Wetwork remake)
- “And more”
- Gunfight OSP
Special Ops missions/modes
- Bomb Squad
- Pitch Black
- Just Reward
- “And more”
According to Activision, we’re receiving all of this content at different times. It would make sense for Infinity Ward to spread out the maps and modes so players aren’t too overwhelmed. Also, spreading out content helps to keep Modern Warfare fresh and not stagnate over time.
Fans of previous Call of Duty titles will certainly enjoy having some of the smaller, more hectic maps returning. Crash, Vacant, and Shipment are all relatively small and have proven to play great across any game. Shipment will be both a 6v6 and a Gunfight map.
Also coming back is the fan-favorite mode Infected, where players try to stay alive against infected players. In terms of the two weapons coming with Season 1, here’s what Activision said about the RAM-7 and Holger-26:
For players who feel like Modern Warfare is getting old, this is the update you’ve been waiting for.
