There's a lot going on in Infinity Ward and Activision as the two announced a Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season One content refresh with a traditionally bombastic trailer, which should get you up to speed on what to expect this week in CoD-land.
"This week Modern Warfare debuts a new game mode, Cranked, the Allegiance forces add the Operator Nikto, new maps for standard Multiplayer and Gunfight come online, and new Special Ops experiences are available that progress the Modern Warfare narrative", they wrote.
If you're just here for the free Call of Duty: Modern Warfare gift pack, all the players will get one on 18 December at 10am PST / 6pm GMT. You can find it in the 'Just For You' section of the Store.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's new operator, Nikto, is heading our way as well. He's described as former Rusian FSB deep cover agent turned Spetsnaz in the Allegiance. He'll be part of your crew once you pick up the Nikto Operator Bundle.
Infinity Ward lined up another classic multiplayer map, Shipment, which will launch in 6v6 and Gunfight variants. "Vacant also from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare will take its place in the 6v6 Multiplayer map rotation. Ready up for these two reimagined maps that will offer up the opportunity for epic combat experiences."
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's developer infused some Christmas spirit into Docks, the Gunfight map, with a thematic re-skin they call Over Winter. The gifts are still exclusively led-based though.
The update goes live on 18 December and to top it all off, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be having a double XP weekend on 20 December at 10am PST / 6pm GMT, which lasts until the same time on 23 December 2019.
