Activision has detailed everything coming to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone this week on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. This includes a new Operator, playlist updates, the return of a massive battle royale mode, and more.
New Modern Warfare Operator And Playlist Updates
The newest Operator to join Modern Warfare is the famous Italian rapper Fabio Rovazzi, playing a sharpshooter named Morte who loves Spaghetti Westerns. In the Morte Operator Bundle, players get the brand-new character, his “Sentenza” skin, and two Legendary Blueprints. Alongside Morte’s bundle is the Devourer package, which includes a Legendary Assault Rifle Blueprint.
On the multiplayer side, Modern Warfare received a playlist update filled with party games. Dubbed the Party Mode Moshpit playlist, players can experience a curation of more casual game modes like Gun Game. An additional playlist, titled 2v2 Gunfight, is also live and features the standard version of the mode and Gunfight On-Site Procurement (OSP). The latter disables the loadout, instead forcing players to rely on weapons found at random spots around the map.
Further playlist updates include Standard Ground War replacing Boots on the Ground War and Demolition being moved from the Quick Play menu to the Feature Playlist spotlight. Meanwhile, Shoot the Ship hasn’t gone anywhere.
Warzone Rumble And Vehicles Returns
Warzone sees some changes this week as well, including the return of Warzone Rumble. The massive 50v50 mode is back and will feature an experience based around Verdansk Stadium. Additionally, classic Battle Royale and Plunder modes will rotate throughout the week; King Slayer Trios and Plunder: Blood Money has been removed, while Plunder Trios was added.
Developer Infinity Ward confirmed that, alongside the playlist updates across both Modern Warfare and Warzone on all platforms, vehicles have been readded to the battle royale title. Vehicles were previously removed because of a game-breaking bug, in which they caused server crashes and booted players from Warzone matches by driving them into specific out-of-bounds areas on the map.
Call of Duty Mobile gets a brand-new map this week–though it’s not “new” to long-time Call of Duty fans. Terminal, from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, will join the game’s map rotation. And at the same time, a cooperative, hoard-based game mode called Attack of the Undead will also go live.
In other Call of Duty news, the multiplayer reveal for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is scheduled to go live on Wednesday, September 9 at 10 AM PT. Details on how to get into the game’s beta have been sparse, but we’ve rounded up everything we know about it so far.
