Well, the reports are true! 200-player matches are coming to Call of Duty: Warzone! This was announced today by Activision as part of the Modern Warfare Season 4 update that’s due tomorrow, June 30! Alongside the new mode, there’s also a new map for multiplayer, new weapon and more.
The Modern Warfare Season 4 update release time is set for 11 .p.m. PDT/2 a.m. EDT! Check out the updated roadmap image below, as well as official details on the new weapon, map and more.
Modern Warfare multiplayer new map – Cheshire Park
Those who have the full Modern Warfare experience have a new locale to deploy to: Cheshire Park.
Located in urban London, England, Cheshire Park is a picturesque garden and conservatory where Operators will battle from door to door or through the central flora-filled area.
Take to the townhomes for long sightlines, the stores to capture objectives through intense CQB battles, or take to the side streets to take some shortcuts. If you dare, try to challenge those who may set up shop in second story windows, phone booths, front yards, or scaffolding.
Modern Warfare Multiplayer new weapn – Rytec AMR:
Snipers, meet the Rytec AMR.
This .50 caliber-chambered beast joins the three other weapons in the sniper rifle category and is yours to unlock via in-game challenge. A blueprint variant is also available to get through the Store via the ‘Lost Souls’ bundle.
Whether you need to lock down an objective in Multiplayer, lay waste to AQ in Co-Op, or take that cross-Verdansk shot in Warzone, the Rytec AMR is one of the deadliest semi-automatic anti-material rifles an Operator can get their hands on. Use the included picatinny rail to Gunsmith it out to the situation at hand and get back in the fight as your squad’s reliable sharpshooter.
Modern Warfare Multiplayer new mode – Team Defender:
Introduced nearly a decade ago, Team Defender returns to Modern Warfare as a fast-paced objective game mode that puts a twist on the traditional Capture the Flag formula.
Instead of both teams defending their respective flags, there is only one flag for a squad member to capture and hold onto. A squad earns a point for every second that one of their members holds onto this flag, which means defending the carrier is a must for victory.
Other than needing the flag to earn points, attackers will want to down the carrier for points, which will lead to games where both squads will frantically attempt to wrest control of the flag until the very last second in this pulse-pounding Multiplayer experience.
Call of Duty: Warzone new gadget – Spotter Scope:
Think of this as a high-powered scope without the glint; this re-usable scope allows you to scan the environment around you and mark enemies without being detected. Perfect for scouting ahead, the Spotter Scope is a great tool for Operators who want to plan their next move while keeping a low profile.
According to Activision, the Modern Warfare Season 4 update file size will be approximately 22-36GV for owners of the full version of Modern Warfare. Console owners must install a secondary download of approximately 3.6GB, then reboot the game to access Multiplayer. If you’re hard up on disk space, don’t forget that you can delete data packs of the game once installed.
