Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season Three

Check out the trailer for the third season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, which comes out today. Take a look below at the details and stay tuned to PS Nation for more news on this game and many others.

Expand Your Squad in Quads

Free-to-play Call of Duty: Warzone, a massive combat experience from the world of Modern Warfare, just made your squad a little bit bigger in its newest game mode.

Drop into Quads, available for Battle Royale and Plunder, allowing you to team up with up to three players for a squad of four. Teamwork becomes even more essential for victory in Quads, as losing a member – or three – of a squad will stack the odds against you even further. In Plunder, collect more Cash faster with this expanded fire team that can help you complete Contracts more proficiently or tactically eliminate any opposing teams.

The full version of Modern Warfare is not needed to join the action in Warzone, so grab your “quad” download and drop in!

Ground Loot Updates and More Modes for Warzone

During the Season, expect to see more modes and playlists that change the loot pool to specific weapon types, and high action modes such as ‘Scopes and Scatter Guns’ (only sniper rifles & shotguns), in addition to other surprises.

Furthermore, ground loot will have a continuous overhaul to diversify the strategies you can take across Warzone. Of note, expect to see every weapon type with a silenced and non-silenced variant, allowing squads to kit themselves for silent operations… or for that final “guns blazing” shootout at the end of a Battle Royale.

Like additional playlists, be on the lookout for the introduction of new weapons and blueprints in Supply Boxes and ground loot to Verdansk and stay tuned for additional meta updates as the Warzone further evolves.

Three New Maps for Multiplayer, Additional Playlists to Come

Owners of the full version of Modern Warfare can experience a trio of fresh 6v6 maps included free in Season Three:

Talsik Backlot

In the middle of the Urzikstan desert lies an urban city with a major construction project taking place at its center. With its citizens long evacuated, combat takes place from door-to-door as teams fight for control of the various overlooks and buildings.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare fans should feel right at home in this Backlot, as it is a remaster of the original map from that game. And for those who are playing this map for the first time, prepare for a great mix of close quarters combat and long-range sniper duels.

Hovec Sawmill

This new locale for Multiplayer, at its core, is a 6v6, three lane map with a balance of mid to long range sight lines. Here’s the story behind it:

A sleepy farming village is under peril, as its main sawmill building has caught fire. Operators will fight within the burning wreckage and around it, visiting the local businesses such as the butchery, the mess hall, and even the beekeeper’s area, which includes a couple of active hives!

Although this humble community is a beautiful one, don’t let it distract you from the battle. Use rooftops of buildings to gain the high ground against enemies sprinting from building to building below and use the splashes of footsteps on the rolling river to track down flanking players.

Aniyah Incursion

The last 6v6 map is a twist on Aniyah Palace.

You’ve experienced it in 10v10 and in Ground War – now fight within a more enclosed version of the area based around the central palace in Aniyah Incursion.

Note the long sightlines looking out over the main courtyard and pool, along with the small crawl spaces within the palace that can be used to flank your enemies. And be careful with Killstreaks: The Palace can make it tricky to aim them into this complex, so placement will be key to getting those confirmed kills.

If you want a head start on knowing what strategies work, hop on Modern Warfare Multiplayer and drop into some games on Aniyah Palace!
