Welcome to Briefings. Before we run down all the latest intel regarding Call of Duty, the latest trailer has dropped for Modern Warfare’s next installment of Season One content. Check it out below:
Season One of Modern Warfare has already brought in various new limited time game modes including Infected and Gunfight O.S.P. last week. This week Modern Warfare debuts a new game mode, Cranked, the Allegiance forces add the Operator Nikto, new maps for standard Multiplayer and Gunfight come online, and new Special Ops experiences are available that progress the Modern Warfare narrative.
In addition, a free gift pack will be available in the Modern Warfare Store for all players on December 18 at 10AM PST! Find it in the ‘Just For You’ section of the Store. Also expect a weekend of Double Weapon XP!
Alongside Mara, the second Operator of Season One, Nikto will be available soon to join the fight. Nikto is a former Russian FSB deep cover agent that has been reassigned to Spetsnaz in the Allegiance forces. Nikto can join your roster of Operators when you pick up the ‘Nikto Operator Bundle’ which features the calculating Nikto, a watch, weapon blueprints, and other personalization items.
Still to come this season, Shipment – the classic Multiplayer map – will debut for traditional 6v6 and for the Gunfight mode. With this map playable in various mode, there will be a host of strategies to discover on this battleground. Vacant also from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will take its place in the 6v6 Multiplayer map rotation. Ready up for these two reimagined maps that will offer up the opportunity for epic combat experiences.
The Holidays will come to Docks, the Gunfight map, in the form of a thematic re-skin: Over Winter. Battle through tension and now twinkling lights in this map full of cheer!
In addition to the ‘Nikto Operator Bundle’ the Modern Warfare store has added two more Featured Bundles: ‘Blood Stained’ and ‘Holideadly’. If you want to look menacing, but still display the spirit of the season, then the ‘Holideadly’ bundle is for you. It comes with an ornament weapon charm, two festive Operator skins, a Holiday themed weapon blueprint, and more. Tis’ the season to pick up the bundle to have a Happy “Holideadly” time.
The second new Featured Bundle this week is ‘Blood Stained’ for Zane of the Allegiance. Don a cool outfit with the ‘Pepper Don Red’ Operator skin, get the ‘Arterial’ melee weapon blueprint, plus two more weapon blueprints the ‘Slizen’ and the ‘Aspirator’, and more. Leave your mark on the battlefield with the ‘Blood Stained’ bundle.
