Following rumors and teasers earlier this month, it has been confirmed that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Season 5 will officially start on August 5 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The new season will introduce a new Battle Pass, but developers Infinity Ward and Raven Software have yet to outline it. Furthermore, the co-developers haven’t detailed what’s inside Season 5. Still, publisher Activision shared an announcement trailer revealing the start date and the new Shadow Company agency.
The trailer, above, plays out like an Army recruitment video for the Armistice Alliance before a gruff-sounding narrator interjects with musings on what the Shadow Company will do following Armistice’s collapse.
While what Season 5 contains remains a mystery for now, earlier teasers suggest that a train could make an appearance on a map. Datamining also suggests that the stadium may officially open up.
With Season 5 going live on August 5, the current Battle Pass will expire on the same day. This means you have about a week left to complete any tier progression before the new Battle Pass is introduced.
In other Call of Duty news, both Modern Warfare and Warzone received playlist updates that swap around a bunch of game modes. Modern Warfare had Gunfight and Deathmatch Domination added to its multiplayer rotation, while Warzone brought back Plunder: Blood Money Trios.
