Infinity Ward are gearing up to bring massive 200-player lobbies to Warzone in the Modern Warfare Season 4 Reloaded patch update on June 30.

From what was already an impressive number to begin with, Warzone’s player cap of 150 will increase by a third of what it already can manage when it lets 50 more contestants create mayhem on Verdansk.

Although, the update isn’t going to affect every playlist. The 200-player Warzone game type will be seen for a limited time in Quads, meaning there will be a total of 50 teams vying for positioning as the circle closes in on its final spot.

“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!” Activision said in their Games Blog post.

Season 4 Reloaded was announced for June 30, but will come to players’ consoles and PCs on June 29 at 11 PM PT / 2 AM EST / 7 AM BST.

Matches in Battle Royale Quads are going to be hectic, and will surely see some of the best players vying for world record kill counts when the expanded mode finally hits the live servers.

Before giving a full briefing on the expansion to Warfare lobbies, the Call of Duty Twitter posted a teaser that sparked excitement among players.

The announcement comes after multiple indications that the 200-player game mode was in the world at Infinity Ward. Studio Head at Infinity Ward Patrick Kelly said in March that the devs were internally playing with the mode.

Later, an untimely screenshot gave evidence of a BR 200, Plunder 200, and BR Juggernaut game types. Most of those have now been confirmed, while Plunder 200 was not confirmed in the June 29 announcement.

The devs sounded excited for the battle royale’s 200-player mode, and said that it would “fundamentally change the battle in Verdansk” in the blog update.

Modern Warfare Season 4 Reloaded is going to add a heap of new content for the current era of the game, one that will pit hundreds of Warzone players against each other.

With the announcement that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War has been delayed, Activision and Treyarch also confirmed that players will be able to get their hands on two free bundles ahead of the first content drop. Here’s everything you need to know about what it includes and how to get it.

While Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War, which was set to bring brand new maps and integrate the game with Warzone, was originally set to come out on December 10, the developers have now announced a slew of new details about the first post-content season, including the fact that it will now launch on December 16.

During this deep dive, Treyarch also confirmed that Black Ops Cold War players will be able to get their hands on some new free bundles for the game before the season launches, presumably in order to help tide people over until the new content drop. Here’s how you can get your hands on both bundles.

Field Research and Certified Bundles

The news of the bundles was announced when Activision confirmed that Season 1 of Black Ops Cold War had been delayed.

According to Activision, both bundles are set to include a number of different items to use in-game: five in the Field Research bundle and four in the Certified bundle.

While these packs are specifically for Black Ops Cold War players, it’s important to remember that some of these items, like the blueprint and Operators, are available for use in Warzone as well.

  • Field Research Bundle
    • Epic Park Operator skin
    • Epic SMG blueprint
    • Epic reticle
    • Epic Calling Card
    • Rare Weapon Charm
  • Certified Bundle
    • Epic Garcia Operator skin
    • Rare Assault Rifle blueprint
    • Epic reticle
    • Epic Weapon Charm

Unfortunately, we don’t know much else about the bundle and we have no idea what they will look like exactly, as Activision didn’t end up releasing any images of them. Once they become available, however, we’ll update this article.

How to get both bundles for free

Luckily, players won’t have to do much of anything to get their hands on it. That being said, they won’t be given to everyone and you do have to do a simple task to get it. According to Activision, both bundles will be given to players who log-in to the game between December 8 at 10AM PST (1PM EST, 6PM GMT) and December 15 at 11PM PST (2AM EST, 7AM GMT on December 16).

To be clear, logging in simply means that you just have to open the game and get to the main menu. Playing a match isn’t required, although the chance of players opening the game without playing it is slim, to say the least.

That being said, it’s great that Treyarch is giving it away for free. Here’s hoping it’s good enough to hold people over until the new season.
