Call of Duty Season 3 is quickly coming to an end and we are already looking ahead to the next season of content. Here’s everything we know so far about the updates coming to Call of Duty: Warzone and Vanguard for Season 4.
Call of Duty Season 4 Start Times
Activision hasn’t announced an official date for Call of Duty Season 4, but given the number of days left in the battle pass, players can expect the new update to arrive around June 22. 12 pm ET on the scheduled date. New seasons of Call of Duty are always subject to change, but an official announcement and more details are coming soon.
What to expect from season 4
Season 3 brought Godzilla and King Kong to Warzone’s Caldera. Some new weapons have been introduced to Vanguard and Warzone, with unlock challenges for the H4 Blixen submachine gun, Sledgehammer, and the Norse-themed Skal Crusher melee weapon.
While few details are officially confirmed for either title, a new season of Call of Duty content usually means there will be a new battle pass to level up, along with additional maps, modes, weapons, operators, and more. Few announcements have been made ahead of Season 4, but Zombies players should finally get a big update for the upcoming season.
Warzone’s Operation Monarch event with Godzilla and King Kong can be a tough act to follow, but Raven Software still seems to have big plans for Season 4. previous interview with CharlieIntel, Raven Software Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins teased that there will be some “really cool Easter eggs for Season 4,” leading Caldera to “see one of the biggest changes” the map has ever offered. since its launch. Timmins is very vague here, so there’s no way of knowing exactly what the theme of season 4 will be.
Players may also see some map changes or new modes for Warzone’s smaller Rebirth Island map. The Season 3 narrative has talked about the communication towers on the map and how the towers have been searching for hostile threats. by Activision Season 3 Blog Reloaded he mocked an imminent threat, and that the prison island had “defenses compromised”.
In addition, Raven Software trello board It lists all the playlists and new modes coming to Warzone every week, but the Rebirth Island mods for June 20-22 have been redacted. This classified content could mean a pretty significant event or mode coming to Warzone, which could set up map changes or story details for the Season 4 theme.
Few details are known about what players can expect in Vanguard for Season 4, but a few leaks are emerging with information that was presumably pulled from the game files. Leakers suggest the return of the USS Texas map, which is a Call of Duty: WWII map that took place above and below decks on a battleship.
Additionally, Season 4 will likely bring an update with bug fixes, weapon balancing, and maybe even new game modes.
Zombies mode received very few updates during the launch of Season 3 and was almost completely excluded from the Season 3 Reloaded update. However, Treyarch previously announced that the content would be delayed as the developer worked to shift the focus from Vanguard’s objective-style maps to traditional round-based survival maps. This first standard map will arrive sometime in Season 4, which is being billed as an “improved” version of Shi No Numa from Call of Duty: World at War.
While Shi No Numa is an older map, Treyarch said that players can expect this upgraded version to include an entirely new main quest, a new area to explore, secondary Easter eggs, a Wonder Weapon quest, new Pack-a-camos -Punch and more. The map is also getting a new story tied to Treyarch’s ongoing Dark Aether narrative.
Shi No Numa also appears to be in the extracted files for Call of Duty: Vanguard, so we’re expecting this content to make its way to the launch of the new season.
As the Vanguard and Warzone updates continue, Activision has revealed a ton of information about Infinity Ward’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. A Modern Warfare 2 reveal trailer was released on June 8, and campaign gameplay was shown off during Summer Game Fest on June 9. Here’s everything we learned about Infinity Ward during an early preview of Modern Warfare 2. Activision also provided some Warzone 2 details, including confirmation that the existing version of free-to-play battle royale will remain, but the two versions will have separate systems. progress and player inventory.
