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. Activision says that not all content in the graphic will be released on December 3. Note that some of this content may drop later than the Season One start date of December 3, and additional content may be added to Season One.
Here’s the high level overview of what’s coming throughout the course of Season 1:
- Two New Operators: Mara and Nikto
- Teaser for a potential new equipment (Gas Barrel)
- New 6v6 MP Maps:
- Crash – The iconic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare map has returned with all the flanking routes and action-packed rooftop encounters you remember.
- Vacant – An abandoned office, previously visited in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, leads to intense interior combat across the complex.
- Shipment (6v6 Map & Gunfight Map) – The classic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare map where fast and frenetic action reigns supreme.
- New Ground War Maps
- Port – Battle across massive shipping crates, cranes, buildings and streets in this unique Ground War map experience.

- New MP Modes:

- Gunfight OSP – A tactically rich 2v2 mode with a twist: Begin with just your fists, and gather equipment as the match progresses.

- Holger-26 – LMG spec of the Holger model rifle, with integrated sight rail and drum magazine for additional ammunition-carrying capacity.
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.
Activision says in a blog post that “everyone” can earn some free content including the base versions of the new weapons.
Every single member of the Modern Warfare community can earn some of the tiers within the forthcoming battle pass system, including cosmetic items and two new base weapons.
We will update as more information is announced on Season 1.
