  • Gameplay Update: Call of Duty: Warzone will be updated to include many of the new movement mechanics, encompassing maneuvering from both Call of Duty: Warzone and from Modern Warfare III. Examples include Slide cancelling, Tac-Stance and more. Expect further details soon.
  • Take Off: Horizontal Ziplines? Check. Drivable Train? Yep. Stay tuned for more details on the multitude of ways to traverse Urzikstan.
  • Call of Duty HQ Update: Squad up and jump between Modern Warfare III and Call of Duty: Warzone with an update that will make switching between titles more seamless.


This has been a glimpse into the massive Season 1 content drop. Modern Warfare III Season 1 packs a punch, with a slate of content for players across all online modes. From all-new MP maps, Zombie-infested action, and a new Call of Duty: Warzone destination there’s something for everyone.

There’s still room for surprises throughout the season including MP Ranked and a special snowy event at mid-season and more. Stay tuned for even more detailed intel in the coming weeks.

Stay frosty.
