Modern Warfare Season 6 release date announced with new Warzone content

Activision have officially announced Modern Warfare Season 6 and with it comes a slew of new content as well as some changes to the ever-popular Call of Duty: Warzone.


Let’s start with the release date. Modern Warfare Season 6 kicks off next week on September 29th, so if you have any Battle Pass tiers you still need to unlock in Season 5 then you’d better hurry.

Headlining the upcoming season are two new playable operators Modern Warfare fans should be familiar with by now – if they’ve played the singleplayer campaign, that is. Protagonists Farah and Nikolai will be joining the ranks as unlockable heroes tied to the Season 6 Battle Pass.

Having been rumoured for some time now, Call of Duty: Warzone is finally getting its very own underground rail network. As shown in the Modern Warfare Season 6 reveal trailer, we see Farah and Nikolai move their way through a metro subway system, weaving between passenger cars and tunnels.

Infinity Ward have confirmed that the trains will be operational in-game, allowing players to navigate the Warzone map at an accelerated speed. As with any new Warzone content, expect players to descend upon the underground station when Season 6 kicks off. There will no doubt be some cools extras and Easter eggs tucked away down there. For a better look at how the rail system will work, here’s an image of its route map.

But wait, there’s more. We’ve seen a glimpse of what Season 6 has to offer though we’re still waiting on news from Activision in regards to new weapons, competitive maps, Gunfight maps, and other content. Die-hard fans will also be keeping their eye out for the full Season 6 Battle Pass.

The pass will be available on September 29th when the new season goes live on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be priced at 1,000 Call of Duty points with 100 tiers to unlock.
