Call Of Duty Mobile Season 5 Launches Today; Here's What's New
The naval-themed Season 5 adds new weapons, maps, and characters to Call of Duty Mobile.
Call of Duty Mobile Season 5, titled In Deep Water, launches later today, June 28, and players can expect a host of naval-themed additions. Alongside new weapons and four new characters, the game is also getting three additional multiplayer maps.
The three new maps are Suldal Harbor, Docks, and Aniyah Incursion. Suldal Harbor is a close-quarters map based on a shipping port that supports 5v5 and 10v10 game modes, while Docks is modeled after a Thames shipyard and built for the Gunfight mode. Finally, Aniyah Incursion might be familiar to Call of Duty fans, as it first appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It supports 10v10, Ground Mission, and Attack of the Undead modes.
Season 5 also brings with it a couple of new multiplayer modes. The aforementioned Ground Mission is a scaled-up version of the classic Domination mode, with 10v10 combat and five capture points on each map. Cranked: Confirmed, meanwhile, is a combination of series mainstays Cranked and Kill Confirmed.
Finally, the themed seasonal event is called Sea of Steel and tasks players to take sides in a meta-competition. The Ghosts and the Federation will compete to capture territory by completing daily challenges
As with every new season, there's also a refreshed battle pass with free and paid tiers. Earning the free tiers will get you items like a new skill that lets you summon a dog companion as well as the CR-56 AMAX assault rifle. The premium tiers are headlined by the four new playable characters coming in Season 5. These are Roze - Foreshadow, Rorke - Man Hunter, Merrick, and Otter - Backstroke. Merrick and Rorke both first appeared in Call of Duty: Ghosts, while Otter is a soldier whose appearance is all about subnautical combat.
In Deep Water will be available starting at 5 PM PT/8 PM ET/10 PM BST. You can see the full list of content, as shared in the season's announcement, below.
