Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 6 Brings Back Some Familiar Faces

Farah and Nikolai are back in the sixth season for Modern Warfare, with the trailer teasing some underground firefights.


Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is fast approaching, but if you're still getting your first-person shooting fix with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you have more seasonal content to look forward to next week.

Season 6 for both Modern Warfare's multiplayer and the free-to-play battle royale, Warzone, is launching on all platforms on September 29. That's less than two weeks away, and a few of the most memorable characters in the franchise's history are included. (Update: The Season 6 update is available now)

The trailer for the new season brings back two of Modern Warfare's main characters--freedom fighter Farah Karim and Soviet soldier Nikolai. The two are involved in an operation underground, with an abandoned subway station looking like a new map setting for the new season. Nikolai was also a character in the original 2007 game.

The trailer doesn't reveal much else about what will be included in Season 6 or what will be exclusive to Warzone. You can probably bet on getting both Farah and Nikolai as operators with the battle pass, as has been the tradition with past season-headlining characters.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War launched its technical alpha for the game's multiplayer on PS4 last week, following a formal multiplayer reveal earlier this month. A beta is coming to more platforms in October, coming first to PS4 before opening to Xbox One and PC players.

The next entry in the Call of Duty franchise will act as a direct sequel to the original Black Ops, inspired by historical events as you hunt down a Soviet sleeper agent during the height of the Cold War. Black Ops Cold War is out for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S on November 13. It also has a very confusing upgrade program for cross-generation support.
