What's new in Season 5 of Modern Warfare: Warzone?

Season 5 is set to offer some of the most substantial changes to the Warzone mode to date. This is teased to include:

  • The arrival of Shadow Company, a faction formed after the Armistice between the Allegiance and Coalition broke down, of which three operators are aligned - Rozlin "Roze" Helms, Velikan, and company leader Marcus "Lerch" Ortega. If Shadow Company sounds familiar, they are the unit under the command of Modern Warfare 2's General Shepherd - and should form a part of the new Battle Pass.
Shadow Company.
  • A new Battle Pass, with 100 levels of new unlocks, including weapon Blueprints and COD Points, which can be progressed across all Modern Warfare multiplayer modes.
  • The Warzone map is set to see a number of changes and additions - including a moving train (best of luck landing on it!) and the opening of the stadium. Should be interesting!
  • Four new maps in Modern Warfare multiplayer - two 6v6 (Suldal Harbor, Petrov Oil Rig), one Ground War (Verdansk Intl. Airport) and one Gunfight (Livestock).
  • New weapons, including the AN94, which will be playable play across all of Modern Warfare's multiplayer modes.

Though not confirmed, new modes have also previously been rolled out throughout the season, and it's likely Season 5 will be the same.
