Call of Duty: Warzone‘s Season 5 update releases in August, and it’s is rumored to make significant map changes to make it more in-line with this year’s Call of Duty. Originally reported by Video Games Chronicle, the revamps will include an open interior of the football stadium and the addition of a loot-filled train that circles the map, according to people involved with its development.
The rumored Cold War-themed Call of Duty has already been teased in the battle royale for over a month, with a number of hints found by players related to the mysterious Warzone bunkers, including a spy plane found by glitching through walls. Other secrets that have been found include a war room, number countdown, and nuclear warhead, which is rumored to be used to trigger a map revamp, similar to Fortnite’s black hole transition to Chapter 2.
The new Call of Duty will reportedly have its own campaign, multiplayer, and Zombies modes but will also incorporate Warzone in a similar fashion to Modern Warfare. Warzone will continue to use Modern Warfare’s engine, with Raven Software–which also worked on Black Ops 4‘s Blackout mode–leading development, according to sources.
Twitter user @BKTOOR_ reportedly found a new operator named “Wood” in the game’s files, which closely resembles the name of Black Ops character Frank Woods, further suggesting that Black Ops content will be integrated into the game.
The most recent update to Warzone–Season 4 Reloaded–added a new limited-time 200-player mode, increasing the player count from 150. Ubisoft recently announced its own free-to-play battle royale, a sci-fi first-person-shooter called Hyper Scape.
