The blog post covering tonight’s update reads in part:
“With this update, Verdansk will now be able to hold up to 200 players in Battle Royale Quads. That means 50 Quads of Operators fighting each other and the encroaching circle collapse,”
“This new player count makes Warzone an even bigger Battle Royale experience, so get ready to drop in alongside 199 other members of this millions-strong community to cause havoc!”
“Please note that the Season Four Reloaded update will have a download size of approximately 22-36 GB for owners of the full version of Modern Warfare,”
As for other Warzone additions, the blog post has more details, but players will be able to find Supply Run Contracts in the game to receive discounts at Buy Stations, play the new (and previously revealed) Juggernaut Royale mode, and pick up the Spotter Scope, a reusable scope without glint. Also, the Modern Warfare map is Cheshire Park. As is typical for these major updates, expect a giant download of between 22 and 36 GB, though the resulting file size shouldn’t be much larger than current for Modern Warfare players and, according to Infinity Ward, a smaller overall digital footprint for Warzone players.
The update adds 200-player Quads in the Warzone battle royale, which means 50 teams of four battling for survival. It’s a limited-time mode, but no announcement has been made regarding when we should expect it to end.
Supply Runs And Juggernauts:
The update will also introduce Supply Run Contracts, which will drop in the midst of a match. If you get one, rush to a Buy Station within the time limit to get a discount on your purchases. It also brings Juggernaut Royale mode, which will drop care packages that allow you to become the Juggernaut with a mini-gun. Once one Juggernaut falls and gets sent to the gulag, another care package will drop so someone else can take the mantle.
New gear in this update includes the Rytec AMR sniper rifle and a Spotter Scope. The new sniper rifle is a .50 caliber-chambered weapon with long range, while the spotter scope allows you to scan ahead without the glint of a high-powered marksman scope giving away your location.
New Multiplayer Map And Mode
For those playing the Modern Warfare version of the game, the standard multiplayer also gets a new map. Cheshire Park is a garden and conservatory in London, England filled with townhomes and side streets to create unique sightlines.
Multiplayer also gets a new Team Defender mode. The variant on Capture The Flag puts a team member in charge of carrying the flag, awarding points for each second they successfully hold onto it. Teammates will have to defend their carrier, while also attacking the other team’s carrier.
Warzone Starter Pack
If you’re just starting to dip into Warzone and want a boost, the update also adds a new starter pack. For $5 you get a legendary “Amalgum” shotgun blueprint, an Epic Krueger Alchemist skin, a Breathing Easy calling card, Vulture Culture emblem, tokens for an hour of double Battle Pass XP and Double Weapon XP, and 500 COD Points.
Call of Duty: Warzone is currently available, free to play, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
