Update: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 2 has now launched on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, opening up the new content, maps, and rewards. Original story follows.
Another new Call of Duty game is on the way later this year, but in the meantime, a new season of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is about to kick off very soon. Season 2 of Activision’s hit shooter begins on PS4, Xbox One, and PC tomorrow, February 11, and it’ll bring a new Battle Pass, free maps, modes, and lots of other content over the next few weeks.
First, two new multiplayer maps will be available for all players right from launch day: Rust and Atlas Superstore. The former is a classic battleground originally featured in Modern Warfare 2, while the latter is an entirely new map set in a warehouse. A third new multiplayer map, Khandor Hideout, will also arrive during the season.
On top of that, Season 2 will launch with a new map for both Ground War (Zhokov Boneyard) and Gunfight (Bazaar). Two new multiplayer modes will also be available from the start of the season, including Gunfight Tournaments–a limited-time 2v2 single elimination competition for 32 teams.
Rounding out the launch day content is Ghost, who is being added to Modern Warfare as a playable Operator. Two new free weapons will also be available from the start of the season: the Grau 5.56 and Striker 45.
Developer Infinity Ward will be rolling out even more content during the course of Season 2, including another handful of new modes such as Demolition, Infected Ground War, and NVG Reinforce. This season will also add another two Operators to the mix–Talon and Mace–as well as a new, as-yet-unrevealed weapon. You can read more about Season 2 on Activision’s official website.
As previously mentioned, Season 2 of Modern Warfare will launch alongside a new Battle Pass, which will be split into free and paid tiers. Any near gear that affects the game’s balance–such as the aforementioned Grau 5.56 and Striker 45–will be unlockable through the free tier, while the latter will offer cosmetics, weapon blueprints, XP tokens, and other benefits. Activision is also offering a Battle Pass Bundle, which can be purchased anytime during the season and will grant you 20 Tier skips.
