Season 4 will introduce new maps and modes to Modern Warfare and likely have some big changes to Warzone as well, including possibly the rumored zombies that Blackout had, though I wouldn’t be surprised if these came in Season 5 instead (if at all). Captain Price is the star of Season 4, as well, so expect him as the first Battle Pass skin and expect some new Warzone story stuff to coincide with his arrival.
Interestingly, the Season 4 update coincides perfectly with the big PS5 event which I take to mean we’ll see the reveal of Call Of Duty 2020—likely just called Call Of Duty: Black Ops, and set in the Cold War.
Warzone will almost certainly continue into the next game’s era (and beyond) but we’ll likely start seeing various changes to the game as the next one approaches. So zombies, possibly, or locations that match the Black Ops universe and so forth. Now that Season 4 is live, let’s take a look at some of the changes and new stuff that the new season brings to both Modern Warfare and Warzone.
First, some quick links:
- Here are the new modes and gameplay changes for Season 4 of Warzone.
- Here are the new maps and modes for Season 4 of Modern Warfare.
- Here’s a rundown of the Season 4 Battle Pass.
- Here are the Season 4 patch notes.
The big changes to Warzone aren’t map-based, which is surprising. I expected some map changes but it appears those may happen later in the season, if at all.
Instead, we got new gameplay mechanics like Jailbreak, which randomly revives all eliminated players in the Gulag or spectating; Fire Sale which discounts shop prices at Buy Stations and makes buying back a downed teammate free; and Supply Chopper which are choppers you can shoot down for special loot.
New modes for Warzone include Juggernaut Royale, Realism, and Warzone Rumble, a big-team mode. Again, for detailed rundowns of all these go here.
