Call of Duty: Vanguard’s devs brought the classic Shi No Numa with Season 4, and another round-based Zombies map will arrive with the Season 5 update.

Although being a continuation of the Dark Aether storyline from Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty players were less-than-impressed with Vanguard’s Zombies offering. The mode was slammed for dropping the round-based format and removing classic features, and even though Season 2’s Terra Maledicta brought the Ray Gun and Decimator Shield, the non-round-based map was labeled “boring.”

Fortunately, a round-based recreation of World at War’s Shi No Numa dropped in the Season 4 update, and now the devs will bring “The Archon” in Season 5.

Both Warzone and Vanguard Season 5 are set to arrive on Wednesday, August 24, bringing “The Archon” as a new Zombies round-based experience.

What this new map will look like is anyone’s guess, but the devs teased back in June that more round-based maps are coming to Vanguard and confirmed that “yes, it’s round-based.”

The Archon is the final map for Vanguard, as Treyarch confirmed that “Vanguard Zombies concludes in Season Five.”

We would expect this map to come with all of the features you’d expect in a Call of Duty Zombies map, such as a Main Quest Easter Egg and Wonder Weapon to build. It appears Kortifex, the main antagonist of Vanguard Zombies, will be the final boss as Treyarch tweeted that “Kortifex must die.”

Hopefully, this new Zombies map will please long-time Zombies players ahead of Modern Warfare 2’s beta and October 28 launch. But, Modern Warfare won’t have its own Zombies mode.
