Activision and Infinity Ward have announced the first details on Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Infinity Ward is shifting to a Season structure for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as they have removed the Season Pass model for this year’s game.
Season 1 will officially begin on December 3 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
Season 1 of Modern Warfare also brings the brand new Battle Pass system with both a free and premium track for players to earn cosmetic content in the game. This is the new system which replaces Loot Boxes. The Premium Battle Pass will be purchasable through Call of Duty Points in-game. The free Pass is available for everyone to earn new content.
Free Content Available To All
Here’s a look at the free Modern Warfare content all players will have access to that starts next week and will continue throughout the duration of Season One:
Crash (Multiplayer Map): The iconic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare map has returned with all the flanking routes and action-packed rooftop encounters you remember.
Vacant (Multiplayer Map): An abandoned office, previously visited in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare , leads to intense interior combat across the complex.
Shipment (Multiplayer and Gunfight Map): The classic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare map where fast and frenetic action reigns supreme.
Port (Ground War Map): Battle across massive shipping crates, cranes, buildings and streets in this unique Ground War map experience.
