Activision and Infinity Ward have announced a significant update for Season 4 of Call of Duty Modern Warfare and Warzone. The substantial update, dubbed Season 4 Reloaded, will go live tonight, June 29, at 11 pm PDT.
For Modern Warfare owners, the update will weigh between 22-36GB, depending on the platform. Console players will also need to install a secondary download of around 3.5GB, then reboot the game to access Multiplayer. For Warzone players, the download size will vary from 22-30GB, depending on the platform. After the installation is complete, there will be a slight increase in Modern Warfare’s digital footprint and a slight decrease in Warzone’s.
From new game modes to a new Operator, the update will introduce a plethora of new content. Activision’s blog gives us a comprehensive idea about what Season 4 Reloaded will bring to Modern Warfare and Warzone.
Perhaps the biggest revelation is that 200 players will get to jump into Verdansk at once after the update rolls out. Currently, the increased player count is only for Battle Royale Quads, meaning 50 Quads will wreak havoc until the very end.
Warzone also gets the Juggernaut Royale mode that comes with a Juggernaut Suit. Players have to search airdropped care packages to become the Juggernaut and utilize the mini-gun to take down enemies or vehicles.
“Once a Juggernaut is sent to the Gulag, a new Juggernaut care package will drop on the map, so do your best to capture the suit and take on any squad that stands in your way.”
Moreover, Supply Run Contracts are coming to the battle royale. Activating the contract will direct players to a nearby Buy Station. Players will receive a discount on Buy Station purchases, if they get there within the time limit.
That’s not all. A new piece of equipment, the Spotter Scope, awaits Warzone players. It is a high-powered and re-usable scope that enables one to scan their surroundings to mark enemies while remaining undetected.
“Perfect for scouting ahead, the Spotter Scope is a great tool for Operators who want to plan their next move while keeping a low profile.”
Modern Warfare players get to experience multiplayer combat in a new map called Cheshire Park.
“Located in urban London, England, Cheshire Park is a picturesque garden and conservatory where Operators will battle from door to door or through the central flora-filled area.”
“Take to the townhomes for long sightlines, the stores to capture objectives through intense CQB battles, or take to the side streets to take some shortcuts. If you dare, try to challenge those who may set up shop in second-story windows, phone booths, front yards, or scaffolding.”
Additionally, Team Defender makes its return to Modern Warfare. It is a fast-paced objective-based game mode similar to Capture the Flag, but with a twist.
There is a single flag that a squad member must capture and keep possession of, rather than both teams defending their respective flags. A squad scores a point for every second their squad member holds onto the flag. Thus, protecting the flag carrier is pivotal to victory. Meanwhile, the opponents’ motive is to take down the flag carrier, which will secure points for them.
“Both squads will frantically attempt to wrest control of the flag until the very last second in this pulse-pounding Multiplayer experience.”
Season 4 has already introduced new guns to the stockpile of lethal weapons. Now, a powerful sniper rifle, the Rytec AMR, is coming to multiplayer and battle royale. The Rytec AMR uses .50 caliber bullets and is “one of the deadliest semi-automatic anti-material rifles an Operator can get their hands on.”
Players can unlock the sniper via in-game challenges. A blueprint variant is also available in the Store as a part of the ‘Lost Souls’ bundle.
After Captain Price and Sergeant Kyle “Gaz” Garrick, it is time for another Operator. Roze is the latest to join the combat roster with the update. Her operator bundle will become available in the Store, alongside other bundles.
Apart from all that, a Warzone Starter Pack and a Modern Warfare Battle Pass Edition, offering a range of cosmetics and other rewards will also be up for grabs. Check out Activision Games Blog for all the details about the Season 4 Reloaded update.
