Season 02 of Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 launches next week

Time to get back to the war zone. Actually, make that “Warzone”, and while you’re at it, throw in Modern Warfare II as well. Season 02 is next week.

Weapons hot

It’s about that time, isn’t it? If you’ve been playing Call of Duty’s various incarnations and getting a bit itchy for new content, it’s understandable. Activision has a tendency of keeping these games fresh, and Season 02 hadn’t dropped yet as of this week. Well, it’s time to get psyched.

Season 02 for the current era of Call of Duty is ready to roll out, and will be coming to fans next week, on February 15th. Nice of Activision to wait till Valentine’s Day was over.

This new go-around will feature fresh content for both Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare II, and on pretty much all fronts. Check out the full rundown below.

Warzone 2.0 Overview:

  • Resurgence Mode Returns with New Warzone Map. A compact, Japanese-themed map, Ashika Island welcomes all warriors willing to fight for honor and glory. Available for all squad sizes, Ashika island is the perfect size for Resurgence.
