Following the launch of Season 5 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, PlayStation have released a free new Combat Pack cosmetics bundle exclusive to PS4 players with an active PS Plus subscription.

The highly-anticipated Season 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone finally launched on August 5, bringing with it a plethora of new content and major changes to the multiplayer and battle royale.

As with every new season since the release of Warzone in March, PlayStation have rolled out another Combat Pack for their users to enjoy for free as part of Sony’s ongoing exclusivity agreement with Activision.

Since free-to-play games, like Warzone, don’t require PS4 players to have a PlayStation Plus subscription, this is a sort-of exclusive reward to those who continue to pay for the service.

ActivisionSeason 5 of Modern Warfare and Warzone kicked off on August 5.

What’s in the Warzone Season 5 Combat Pack?

The bundle features seven items in total: “Grab an Operator skin, weapon blueprint, and other in-game accessories to show off your style, inspired by Verdansk’s Stadium.”

Six of the items are cosmetics, including ‘The Footballer’ Operator skin for Zane, which will also automatically be unlocked for those who don’t already own the character.

The only non-cosmetic in this set is the 60 minute Double XP token, which will afford some valuable experience boost for players looking to level up in the new season quickly.

  • Epic Zane ‘The Footballer’ skin
  • Epic ‘On the Volley’ Weapon Blueprint
  • Epic ‘Injury Time’ Watch
  • Epic ‘The Sparks’ Charm
  • Epic ‘Stunning Strike’ Calling Card
  • Epic ‘Sparks Pride’ Emblem
  • 60 Minute Double XP Token

How to get the Warzone Season 5 Combat Pack

As mentioned above, the only way to get this bundle is to play on the PS4 and have an active PS Plus subscription. If you meet these criteria, follow these steps to claim your pack:

  1. Visit the Franchise section of the in-game Modern Warfare/Warzone Store
  2. Scroll down to the Miscellaneous section
  3. Find and click on Combat Pack (Season 5)

Don’t have PS Plus? If you’ve never signed up for the service before, you can get a 14-day free trial and get the Combat Pack without spending a dime. Just remember to cancel the subscription before the two weeks are up, or else you’ll be charged for the first month.

How long is this available?

According to PlayStation, this bundle will be available in their store until October 1, 2020, so you still have plenty of time to grab it, despite it being a “timed exclusive.”

Black Ops Cold War already set new Call of Duty player record in the Beta

The Call of Duty franchise is showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon as Treyarch’s recent Black Ops Cold War Beta went above expectations and shattered records.

Ever since the release of the first CoD title in 2003, the franchise has only continued to grow. Year after year more players hop on board to see what the latest title has in store. Whether fans gravitate towards single-player campaigns, cooperative experiences, or classic multiplayer competition, there’s something for everyone.

2020 is shaping up to be no different as Treyarch is firing on all cylinders for the Black Ops Cold War release. Everything from Zombies to Warzone will be on offer and it’s already clear that the community is hungry for it all.

After an impressive Alpha test on the PlayStation 4 that became the biggest in franchise history, that record has once again been broken. This time, by the Black Ops Cold War Beta that followed just weeks later.

Having kicked off exclusively for PS4 users on October 8 before jumping to all platforms on October 15, the Black Ops Cold War Beta was played by a staggering number of people. In fact, it was “the most downloaded [Beta] in Call of Duty history,” the developers revealed on October 23.

No exact figures were revealed for the history Beta. Though it being publicly available across Xbox One, PS4, and PC over the final days was sure to have helped boost the figures.

Not only is this a hugely positive sign before the launch of Black Ops Cold War, but it continues a trend from previous iterations. 2019’s Modern Warfare also broke records with its early access Beta period. 

Last year’s records also didn’t come with any specific numbers, though Activision assured the Modern Warfare Beta attracted more players than ever before.

Also of note, those players logged more hours played than any Beta in franchise history. It’s now clear that Black Ops Cold War has been yet another step up in terms of early engagement.

The Black Ops Cold War Beta was live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

It’s obviously too early to tell just how this might indicate sales for the release come November 13. However, to get into the Beta early, a majority of players needed to preorder on their platform of choice. So that’s certainly a good sign just weeks out from launch.

2019’s Modern Warfare topped over $600 million in sales across its first three days on the market. That instantly made it the highest-selling CoD of the generation. Though Black Ops Cold War could be on track to go even further this year.
