A new gameplay trailer has been released for Call of Duty Modern Warfare detailing everything coming to the game and its free-to-play battle royale in Season 6. You can check out that trailer down below:
Thanks to a recent blog post from Activision’s James Mattone, we have more information on what players can expect in Season 6. There’s a lot to unpack here so let’s just get into it.

- 2:00 AM ET (September 29th)

It wouldn’t be a new Modern Warfare update without insanely huge file sizes to install. Here are the file sizes for Modern Warfare Season 6:
- PS4 – 19.3 GB

And we here at ModernWarzone are a lot like the late-great Billy Mays because that’s not all. Since Survival Mode is FINALLY heading to Xbox One and PC on October 1st, players will have to download another pack.

- Xbox One Survival Pack – 5.9 GB
Activision did remind players that they could remove unused packs to make space for new content. If you think you’ll need to do that for Season 6, click here.
New Operators And Skins In Modern Warfare Season 6

Subway Stations Throughout Verdansk
As we’ve talked about many times here at ModernWarzone, Modern Warfare Season 6 will introduce a new fast-travel system in Warzone via multiple metro stations located throughout the map. In each station, you’ll find loot, contracts, and most likely other players trying to get on board the train. The trains are also a conflict-free zone, meaning that they will not move if there is any fighting going on inside or directly near the train cars. You can read more about the metro system here.
Nightfall And Zombie Royale Confirmed For Warzone?
In the trailer, we saw glimpses of the long-rumored night mode version of Warzone. While there’s a chance this could be a standalone playlist, it could actually be apart of Modern Warfare’s horror-themed event coming in October. This limited-time event is called “Haunting of Verdansk” and it’ll run from October 20th to November 3rd. At the end of the trailer, we heard a disturbing laugh that sounded a lot like Jigsaw from the Saw franchise. So, that may be a thing to watch out for.
There has been a ton of speculation and other rumors online indicating that this will be a Zombie Royale playlist. As we previously reported, the Primis version of Nikolai Belinski from Treyarch’s Call of Duty zombies mode has been spotted in official images for the upcoming season. We’ll be sure to update you on both of these potential playlists and what’s included in them once Infinity Ward reveals more.
New Multiplayer Modes And Maps Revealed For Modern Warfare
Warzone isn’t the only game mode being updated with Season 6. The base version of Modern Warfare will have new maps for 6v6, 10v10, Gunfight, and Ground War game modes. Let’s take a look at the new maps coming to Modern Warfare’s multiplayer:
- Station (Gunfight)
- Verdansk Riverside (Ground War)
- Broadcast (6v6)
- Mialstor Tank Factory (6v6 and 10v10)
Modern Warfare Season 6 will also bring more playlists to the game. Here are the new modes and how Mattone describes them:
“This Kill Confirmed variant comes charging in with multiple changes concerning Killstreaks: These can only be earned by collecting enemy dog tags. However, your streak won’t reset on death, so you’ll want to rush for tags as fast as possible to earn your Killstreaks. Trying to stay alive? Unlike traditional game modes, Killstreak Confirmed also allows players to ‘wrap’ Killstreaks, making it possible to earn the same Killstreak (like the UAV or Cluster Strike) multiple times in one life. The team that collects the target number of dog tags – in spite of the inevitable barrage of Killstreaks – wins the match.”
Gun Game Team Deathmatch
“As the name states, this mode combines the random weapon assortment of Gun Game with Team Deathmatch. Pick your loadouts for perks and equipment, then get ready to use whatever is handed out to take down the opposition. Each kill with a given weapon cycles you through a predetermined list of weaponry all the way to a Combat Knife, where one melee takedown with it resets the cycle back to the starting weapon. First team to the target kill count wins the match.”
“This twist on Headquarters awards team score for both holding the objective and earning kills, almost like a Team Deathmatch. This allows teams to try to catch back up on score between HQ objectives. After a team captures an HQ, respawns are disabled until the enemy team neutralizes it. Hold down the objective and defend it from enemy players to maximize score. First team to the target score wins the match.”
Even though that was a ton of content, we still didn’t cover everything in the Activision blog post. So if you wanted to see more, you should definitely check it out for yourself.
