Modern Warfare’s flagship battle royale Warzone will “definitely” be getting a host of game modes ⁠— as many as a dozen more, if new leaks are to be believed ⁠— when Season 4 finally arrives, Infinity Ward devs have confirmed.

Call of Duty’s return to the battle royale scene has been a total success. Even as Fortnite rolled out Travis Scott, and Apex prepares for another season switch-up, Warzone has been full-steam ahead with new guns, cosmetics, and more.

Now it looks like Infinity Ward is doubling-down on that early success with the 150-player mode with a host of new playlists and limited-time modes, all of which the devs confirmed were “definitely” coming in Season 4.

“On the gameplay stuff I can tell you, there will definitely be new modes… We’re constantly working on modes,” Raven Software creative director Amos Hodge told French publication GamerGen. “We want to add new spice to the game.”

Hodge confirmed Modern Warfare’s battle royale would also be inundated with “new items, field upgrades, and loot,” next season. He also teased Warzone would soon have “brand new items to put in your loadout” on top of new playlists.

Infinity Ward’s narrative director Taylor Kurosaki also suggested the new modes may have something to do with “whole other parts of Verdansk [players] haven’t seen yet.” That does seem to confirm Warzone’s vaults will soon open.

Hodge did not confirm what kind of new modes Warzone will be getting when Season 4 ⁠— expected to begin on June 2 ⁠— finally arrives. Thankfully, recent data-mined leaks have uncovered details on what may be coming soon.

The leaks, dug up by code-dipper ModernWarzone, suggest a wide variety of new LTMs will make their way into the game. Some, like “Infinite Gulag,” seem like simple concepts. Others, like “PewPew,” we’ll just have to wait and see.

There’s other good news on the horizon for Warzone ⁠— the long-awaited arrival of Duos may be quite soon, Infinity Ward have confirmed. Fans have demanded the two-player mode be added to the game since launch.

Players have a wait ahead of them before they can get their hands on the new LTMs though. Season 4 is slated to launch sometime around June 3, so it may be a month before we see these playlists on live servers.

Nuketown Easter egg discovered on new Black Ops Cold War map

Black Ops Cold War players have discovered an easter egg that could hint at Nuketown from BO1 on the map Cartel, which is one of the brand new maps made available to fans during the game’s Open Beta.

Everyone knows that Nuketown is the single most popular map in Black Ops history. It’s been a part of every single iteration in the series, even showing up multiple times in one title, if you count the Zombies version of it in BO2. Rumors have even suggested that the map will be showing up in Black Ops Cold War, which is unsurprising, to say the least.

Because of its popularity, it’s only reasonable that the developers would want to start teasing it before it’s added to the game – but most people probably didn’t expect it to show up in one of the beta maps.

The image of Nuketown can be found right before the main hanger in Cartel.

If players go into the back of the map Cartel, which was one of the maps that players didn’t get to experience in the Alpha, they’ll find an image of one of the houses on the classic BO1 map. Does this mean that the classic version of the map will appear in Black Ops Cold War?

Of course, no one knows at this point in time, but some people seem to think so, like YouTuber TheGamingRevolution. And it would make sense, too: With BOCW being a direct sequel to Black Ops 1, having a map pulled straight from that game would fit the time period.

That being said, given that every single version of the map throughout its history has been changed, it would be surprising if the developers didn’t do the same thing this time.

Regardless of what this picture means, it’s nice to see that the developers haven’t forgotten about the classic map, even 10 years after its original launch.
