Infinity Ward and Raven Software devs have given a very first preview of some content to expect with Call of Duty: Warzone in Season 4 of the game.
Season 3 launched in early April, and based on the Battle Pass timer in-game, Season 4 should begin around the first week of June.
In an interview with GamerGen, Infinity Ward has teased some of the content that is coming to Warzone in Season 4.
Kurosaki, Infinity Ward’s Narrative Director, says the story line will continue with Season 4 of the game and says new people will be dropping in to join the fight in Verdansk. He also says that some mysterious and clues will be unlocked in Season 4 for players to explore and learn more.
Players have already discovered that there is a whole other part of Verdansk they haven’t seen yet. They have found clues, and that there is more than meets the eye in this city. Season 4 will unravel some of those mysteries and unlock some of them for our players. As the battle in Verdansk wages on, things will grow more desperate. There are going to be more and more fighters sent in to turn the tide and we’re very excited to get our players to see and join alongside these new great warriors as they continue to fight.
Amos Hodge, Raven’s Creative Director, says that there will be new loot for players to find in Warzone in Season 4 of the game, including new Field Upgrades. He also says that some loot will be added that extends beyond what’s available in loadouts. And there will be new modes.
On the gameplay stuff I can tell you that there will definitely be new modes, we’re constantly working on modes. So new modes we’ll be releasing, and we’re working on new content – new items in game that you can put in your loadout. There will be new items to find in BR and Plunder that aren’t in your loadout to add gameplay and a little looting. There will be new field upgrades for example. So we’re working on new Field Upgrades, new modes, new loot in general that you can get in your loadout to add some new spice to the game.
In addition, as part of the same interview, Infinity Ward’s Kurosaki has clarified his comments on Warzone having Fortnite-like events. He says that Fortnite and Modern Warfare are ‘very different’ and going for different approaches.
I wouldn’t say they’re Fortnite-like events, because Fortnite is such a different type of a game than Modern Warfare. With Fortnite you know that the world is ever evolving and ever changing so much you kind of don’t want to go away from it or you might miss something. It’s the same thing with Warzone.
He says that a narrative story has been in the works since before Modern Warfare came out and that they are ensuring that the overall world operates like the real world as that is how Modern Warfare is built.
In terms of story, we’ve been setting up this narrative since before Modern Warfare came out. An important point for us is that Modern Warfare exists in a world that operates not unlike the world that we live in. The same thing goes for Multiplayer, Spec Ops and Warzone. These are real factions that mimic the way the world and it’s super powers. They have allegiances, sort of rivalries… The big what if with Warzone is that those traditional allegiances have broken down, and someone is pulling the strings behind the scenes and we, as the Operators in the game, are trying to figure out what’s going on and how to solve it.
