Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 5 rumors have already begun to circulate – and it sounds like there’s a lot to look forward to. Season 5 could be the biggest yet, with talk of a beloved map from Modern Warfare 2 being into the mix, Soap MacTavish coming as a playable operator, as well as big changes coming to Verdansk, the map for Call of Duty: Warzone.
When does Call of Duty Season 5 start?
Season 5 is likely to start when Season 4’s battle pass ends on August 4th. With the Covid-19 pandemic still affecting game studios worldwide, however, we’ll have to wait and see if developer Infinity Ward’s schedule is impacted in any way as it was with season 4.
You might also want to free up some space on your hard drive before the Season 5 update arrives. Each Call of Duty: Modern Warfare update has been noticeably large so far, often weighing in at over 30GB each time.
What will Call of Duty Season 5 include?
Data miners have uncovered some potential new firearms that might be making their way to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare next season. The M200 and SPAS-12 could make an appearance, or the AN-94, which was found in the game files of Season 4.
New operators are almost certainly coming, too. Captain Price was the big headline addition for Season 4, and Soap MacTavish is strongly tipped to enter the fray as part of Season 5.
All of this has been seen upcoming in Call of Duty Mobile with new character reveals so it’s thought that it will be making it’s way across to it’s console and PC counterparts.
A report from VGC claims that Season 5 of Call of Duty: Warzone will revamp the game’s current Verdansk map in a number of ways. Firstly, players will be able to access the interior of ‘Stadium’, which dominates the center of the map. A loot-filled train will also be added and it will continuously circle the map.
New items and in-game items will perhaps predictably be brought into rotation, but we could see a greater focus on the narrative story that Infinity Ward has been developing since opening up the bunkers for players to explore. Expect to see some more experimental modes, too, like Juggernaut Suit and Realism which were included in Season 4.
How much is the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 5 battle pass?
We reckon the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 5’s battle pass should cost $9.99 (£8.39 / AU$15) or 1,000 COD Points. The pass will likely include 100 tiers, and each tier will unlock new customization options, weaponry and timed XP boosts. The battle pass tends to include earnable COD Points which essentially means you can recoup your purchase by playing and completing the pass.
Don’t fancy the whole grind or just want a little boost? A battle pass bundle for $19.99 (£17.49 / AU$30) or 2,400 COD Points will probably be included once again, which lets you skip 20 tiers and unlock unique skins and items.
