Call of Duty developers Infinity Ward have added a brand new map and mode to the currently ongoing Modern Warfare Beta, called Gun Runner and Cyber Attack respectively.

As the closed portion of the Modern Warfare Beta on PlayStation 4 rolls on, Infinity Ward are keeping on their promise by adding new content, which happens to be both a new map and mode on September 13. 

The new map, Gun Runner, is a war-torn factory and distribution depot located nine kilometers outside of Verdansk, Russia.

Like many of the other Modern Warfare maps revealed so far, it has considerable areas both indoors and outdoors, the latter of which has train cars scattered throughout that players can use for cover. 

You can check out our video featuring gameplay footage from Domination on Gun Runner below, taken during the multiplayer capture event in early August. 

As for the new mode – Cyber Attack – it’s one that hasn’t really been seen before in Call of Duty titles of the past.

The objective for the team on offense is to “retrieve the EMP Device and plant it near the enemy’s data center,” while the defending team has to try and stop that from happening.

Much like Search and Destroy, this mode gives each team limited lives, however there’s a slight twist from classic S&D – surviving players can revive their eliminated teammates once during the round.

A round can end in several ways:

  • Team on offense can plant the EMP device near the enemy base and defend it long enough.
  • Team on defense can defuse the EMP device after it has been planted.
  • Teams can eliminate every opposing player and win off of eliminations. 

You can check out gameplay and an explanation of Cyber Attack below, courtesy of IGN. 

September 13 is the final day that the Beta will be available only to those with early access, as it will be open for everyone to try out from September 14-16. 

The second week of the Beta kicks off on September 19 with early access for all platforms, before opening up to the public September 21-23.

Modern Warfare will fully release on October 25, 2019 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Black Ops Cold War Season 1 teaser all but confirms Rebirth Island map

During the announcement that Black Ops Cold War Season 1 and it’s subsequent Warzone integration would be slightly delayed by six days, the developers released a teaser image that all but confirms that the new map will involve Rebirth Island.

Earlier today, the CoD community was taken aback by the fact that the first post-launch content season for Black Ops Cold War had been officially delayed by six days.

While the delay isn’t long by any stretch of the imagination, many fans have been eager for more content, including the integration with Warzone, which so far we didn’t have many official details on.

But during the news, Treyarch dropped a teaser image for the season which at first glance might not show off much but if you look closely pretty much confirms all of the leaks that have come out over the last month or so.

Activision
Rebirth Island was originally teased in the Season 1 roadmap for Black Ops Cold War.

At the top of the teaser image, which says that Season 1 is coming on December 16, fans can see that a few phrases in red blurred out in varying degrees. Upping the brightness of the image in Photoshop reveals a few cool, interesting details.

The first is a set of coordinates at the very top of the image. Inputting that latitude and longitude into Google Maps will take you to the real-life Vozrozhdeniya Island in Uzbekistan, otherwise known as Rebirth Island. Beyond that, the phrase “Rebirth Island” can actually be seen in the image as well.

While both of these can be seen normally in the base image, they are way easier to see after it’s been brightened.

Brighting the teaser image in Photoshop reveals coordinates for the real-life Rebirth Island.

This all but confirms the leaks that Rebirth Island will be coming to the game when the integration happens and given the fact that the developers have already confirmed a new map for the season, it’s almost certainly this one.

As with with any other rumor or speculation, take this with a grain of salt, however, fans will likely be getting their first look at Rebirth Island sometime within the next week or two so keep an eye out for that.

Until then, keep it locked to Dexerto for more about Black Ops Cold War and Warzone.
