The new update will add substantial changes to both games, including the previously teased addition of two new operators, Nikolai and Farah. Players will also be able to fast travel in Warzone thanks to the introduction of a seven-stop subway system.
Known as the “Metro”, the subway system will have fully operational trains that allow players to fast travel between points on the map. Stations will also be packed with loot to find and obtained. However, trains won’t operate unless there is no conflict onboard and will not venture into areas outside the circle.
As with previous seasons, the update also adds new locations to freshen up the experience. Each boasts particular features, whether being specific to multiple modes or returning classics from prior games.
The four new maps added to Season 6 are:
- Station: The Gunfight mode specific map is set around a rural Kastovia train station. Trains littered across the map offer ample cover and tactical highpoints to eliminate unaware enemies.
- Broadcast: Bringing back the fan favourite map from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Broadcast has only been incorporated as a Warzone location up until the point. Now, players will be able to dive into the nostalgic map across a variety of core modes.
- Mialstor Tank Factory: Described as one of the larger maps, Mialstor Tank Factory offers two large buildings with an outside space between them. Boasting a versatility in playstyles, the new map will be accessible through small and large scale core modes.
- Verdansk Riverside: The Ground War mode specific map takes a chunk of the Warzone map and turns it into a core multiplayer map. Various buildings and vehicles will drastically shake up the heat of battle in this large-scale battle.
All the new features and maps were highlighted throughout a Season 6 trailer, showcasing what fans will be diving into. A Halloween inspired mode has also been teased to begin on October 20, with iconic horror movie villain Jigsaw heard laughing in the background.
