The Warzone update is now available on all platforms and allows players to form squads of four instead of the initial trio approach. This gives the game a full set of varied squad sizes up to four, following on from the solo queue update which landed in mid-March.
As well as the new Quads mode, you can expect new playlists, weapons and blueprints (including silenced and non-silenced gun variants) on the ground in Warzone, as well as vehicle skins so you can kit out your quad bikes and trucks in-game.
Riley the German Shepherd, the resident good boy from Call of Duty: Ghosts will also make an appearance as a unique finishing move in-game, proving his bite is just as bad as his bark.
Outside of Warzone, Season Three introduces a few new maps including a remaster of the original Call of Duty 4’s Backlot map and a few new game modes arriving later in the season, including Gun Game Reloaded and Reinfected Ground War.
The Season Three mascot is none other than Alex, a new operator who you’ll be acquainted with if you’ve played Modern Warfare’s campaign mode. His model features a few post-narrative aesthetic tweaks, but no spoilers here!
Later in the season, two more operators will arrive in the shape of Ronin and Iskra, available through store bundles. If you’re new to the game, Activision has also revealed the Modern Warfare Battle Pass edition, which gives you the full game and 3000 CP, as well as a suite of skins. This means you can unlock the season three battle pass straight away and jump into the action.
You can check out the patch notes over on Modern Warfare developer Infinity Ward’s website, which detail all of the new content coming to the game with this bumper update.
