Warzone players think they’ve spotted teasers for Season 4 night mode

Infinity Ward could be set to introduce a night-time playlist in Warzone as players have begun piecing together subtle hints from the latest Season 3 teasers.

Almost three months into Warzone’s release and the hugely-popular battle royale is gearing up for some major developments. While players dissect countless easter eggs in the newly opened bunkers, and cryptic messages hint at an explosive in-game event, the build-up to Season 4 is in full swing.

The latest promotional material might have just outed one major addition in the next big update. A night-time playlist has been sought-after for many weeks, and it could now be right around the corner.

Could you picture a blacked out version of Warzone?

A May 27 teaser trailer may have put the spotlight on Captain Price as the next playable Operator in Warzone, but there could be more to learn from the 60-second video. “Bravo Six, going dark,” the iconic Call of Duty character says as lights in the background change from red to green.

Obviously this is a classic line from Price, one featured in the original Modern Warfare trailer as well. In the 2019 reveal, gameplay switches to night-vision footage as he issues the command.

While night-vision goggles aren’t in the Warzone teaser, perhaps we can expect a darkened version of Verdansk in Season 4. It seems all too fitting for the dialogue to be repeated here with the introduction of Price as an Operator.

New images have also appeared on Blizzard’s Battle.net launcher for Warzone players on PC. This promotional material shows Price front and center with a distinct color change in the background.

The map is currently bright and sunny with a pale blue sky. Instead, this new image depicts his trio emerging from Bunker 21 as a notably darker tone hangs over Verdansk. Many players believe this might be a fully-fledged night-time version of the battle royale.

The new colors could purely be to separate Season 4’s visuals from the blue, gold, and red style of Season 1, 2, and 3 respectively. However, it could very well be our first look at a future version of the Warzone map after some catastrophic – perhaps nuclear – event comes to pass.

You can see this new image for yourself the next time you boot up Battle.net on PC.

Only time will tell just how things transpire on the way to Season 4. You won’t have to wait much longer as the content drop is scheduled for Wednesday, June 3.

Keep an eye out for any new teasers that may appear in-game, from creepy noises to brand new healing items, it could all be revealing what’s next.

Black Ops Cold War leak reveals new Christmas-themed Nuketown

The holidays are right around the corner and it appears as though Black Ops Cold War will be getting into the festive spirit as new leaks have revealed a limited-time version of Nuketown ‘84 on the way.

Nuketown has seen a number of complete makeovers throughout the years. What started as a simple, close-quarters map in Black Ops 1, has been revamped in many unique ways. From a futuristic remake to the latest 80’s themed design and plenty more.

The fan-favorite map isn’t stopping there, however. New leaks and even a quirky bug have all pointed towards a festive takeover coming into effect very soon. There might even be multiple versions of the battlefield all in-game at the one time.

Christmas is coming to Black Ops Cold War in a big way. Not only will Nuketown be covered with festive decorations, but there also appears to be a night-time variant coming as well.

From a leaked preview image of the Nuketown ‘84 map, we’re given our first look at the map from an all-new perspective. Rather than the beaming hot sun lighting things up, Nuketown looks a little different here. A dark sky keeps things mellow while Christmas lights aim to get you in the holiday spirit.

A few Christmas reefs are scattered around while tinsel is layered across almost every surface. From the one angle, however, there doesn’t seem to be any kind of snow or other major difference. Purely just decorations on an otherwise standard Nuketown ‘84.

While the leaked image comes from a reliable source that’s revealed a wide array of content in the past, there’s more to it than just that. Oddly enough, a bizarre glitch from November 25 actually let players see the Christmas decorations in-game for a split moment.

The yet unannounced version of the map randomly came into effect mid-game for one lucky player. They were caught off guard by the interior of a house but the decorations remained in place, even after death.

That should clear up any caution as to whether the Christmas-themed variant is real or not. While there’s no date locked in for this holiday takeover, we can obviously expect to see it in a matter of weeks as December draws to an end.

Nuketown seems to be the only map getting a festive makeover for now. Though there could always be some visual changes on the way for Warzone as well. We’ll have to wait and see.
