Activision has revealed what Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 players can look forward to across the two title’s first season of content. Starting 16th November 2022 — the release date of Warzone 2 — Modern Warfare 2 users will get two new maps, a fourth co-op mission named High Ground, and CDL Moshpit. Shared with Warzone 2, there are also two new assault rifles to unlock as well as two more Operators in Gaz and Klaus.
Specific to Warzone 2 is the new map of Al Mazrah, which contains 18 points of interest. There’s a new Gulag — now two versus two — new vehicles, and a lot of gameplay features to get to grips with. You’ll now be able to swim underwater and engage in combat, proximity chat is being implemented, you can interrogate downed players to gain intel, a new buy station system is included, and there’ll be a third-person playlist.
The two games will share a Battle Pass once again, which is based around a new system where you commit to unlocking clusters of items rather than following a set path of 100 tiers. Within them will be another new Operator and two more guns.
As for the special Opeator event themed around the World Cup, PSG forward Neymar Jr will be available from 21st November 2022. Paul Pogba joins the game four days later, and then Lionel Messi closes the Modern Warfare FC Event out on 29th November. You’ll need to pay to gain access to any of them.
The maps heading to Modern Warfare 2 are fan favourites Shoot House and Shipment. The former will be available on day one while the latter arrives during the middle of the season. The game will also be treated to a new mode called DMZ, which is said to be similar to Escape from Tarkov.
