Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare II’s Season 01 lands next week

There’s a whole mess of multiplayer action on the near horizon for Call of Duty fans, with the arrival of Warzone and Modern Warfare’s first season.

The fan favorite is back

If you’ve been playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II since its release late last month, you’ve found yourself among a heck of a lot of gamers. Modern Warfare II has cleaned up, dominating the charts and blowing away records.

But while the game shipped with multiplayer action, you’ve probably been eagerly awaiting something else too. Namely, I’m talking about the arrival of Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare II’s Season 01.

A massive new multiplayer addition on both fronts, Season 01 will bring a ton of fresh action for fans.

Warzone 2.0 Overview:

  • New Map: Al Mazrah: Use 18 major points of interest to plot out your victory in Battle Royale or explore them en route to extraction in the brand-new DMZ experience.
  • DMZ: DMZ is an open-world, narrative-focused extraction mode where Operators have free rein to complete faction-based missions, take on additional side objectives, engage with enemy Operators or AI combatants, and search for valuable items, all while fighting to survive toward exfiltration.
  • Custom Loadouts are Back: Players will have quicker access to their Loadout’s primary benefit: The Primary Weapon.
  • New Backpack System: Fully integrated for DMZ and streamlined for Battle Royale modes.
  • New Gulag: The Gulag will be a 2v2 environment where randomly paired Duos must coordinate to take down their opposition. It will also include a Jailer, who will appear in the middle of the match to help speed up combat.
  • Third-Person Playlists Coming In-Season to Warzone 2.0: For the first time in Warzone history, we welcome fans of third-person Battle Royale action during Season 01.

Modern Warfare II Season 01 Overview: 

  • Shoot House, Shipment Set for Reimagined Return. Prepare to finish out those camo challenges or just embrace the frantic chaos these action-packed maps provide.
  • New Battle Pass, Now with More Player Choice. Conquer a new Battle Pass as you choose map Sectors your way to unlock both free and premium items in whatever order you decide.
  • Four Weapons, Six Total Operators. Two new weapon platforms and two Trios — one of elite soldiers and one of football’s finest — are set to bolster your arsenal and Operator roster.
  • New Special Ops Mission, Raid Episode 1 In-Season. Grab your Duo and assault the enemy on land and in the air before gearing up for the continuation of the Modern Warfare II story in a daunting Raid experience.
  • Seasonal Prestige System. New challenges and rewards await those who clear the Military Ranks.
  • Open the CDL Moshpit. Prior to the introduction of Modern Warfare IIRanked Mode in a future Season, practice on the official maps and ruleset with your squad.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 Season 01 arrives for all versions of the game on November 17th, at 10am pacific time.
