Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare's Battle Pass Will Be Available In December

The first proper season of Modern Warfare is starting soon.


While past Call of Duty games have featured a season pass and paid map DLC, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will instead employ a battle pass system, much like the one popularized by Epic's hit battle royale shooter, Fortnite. Fans are still waiting for the first battle pass to arrive, but according to Activision, it'll be ready to go next month.

During its latest quarterly earnings call, Activision revealed that Modern Warfare's first season will kick off sometime in December 2019. The company didn't pin down an exact date, but it did note that the December time frame is "later than planned." Modern Warfare released on October 25.

Now Playing: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Pass & Update Details - GS News Update

Activision has previously shared a few details on how the new battle pass system will work. There will be both Free and Premium streams of content to earn; the former will let you unlock anything that has an impact on gameplay, such as weapons and attachments, while the latter will only feature vanity items like cosmetics. Players will also be able to earn COD Points with the battle pass.

In the meantime, Activision is rolling out some free new content for the game later this week. Beginning Friday, November 8, players will have access to a new multiplayer map (Shoot House), a new Ground War map (Krovnik Farmland), and another game mode, Hardpoint.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched on PS4, Xbox One, and PC and quickly became PS4's best-selling game of the month in the US. GameSpot awarded the title a 7/10 in our Call of Duty: Modern Warfare review. Critic Kallie Plagge wrote, "The pitfalls of Spec Ops don't detract from what Modern Warfare does well. Realism mode is an excellent addition to the slate, and although not all the new multiplayer modes are great, Gunfight and the Night Vision playlist are refreshing standouts."
