Marketing for Call of Duty Warzone’s Season 5 update has begun, seemingly confirming the addition of a train to the battle royale map.
Streamer NICKMERCS received a package this week which included a brief snippet of footage, which shows Verdansk with a train horn clearly heard in the background.
The footage also includes the date August 5, which is when Warzone’s Season 5 is expected to start.
VGC reported earlier this month that Call of Duty Warzone would introduce significant map changes in its Season 5 update scheduled for early August.
The changes include a revamp of the game’s large football stadium to include an open interior, and the addition of a loot-filled train which will continuously circle the game map, people involved with development said.
The additions are part of an effort to bring Warzone’s Verdansk game map more in line with the next Call of Duty title, which will be set during the Cold War.
Warzone has been a huge success for Activision, amassing more than 60 million players, and according to VGC sources, the publisher sees the free-to-play shooter as an ideal platform to unveil the next premium series instalment.
We understand that Activision will integrate Black Ops content into Warzone, thus combining the franchise’s sub-brands for the first time outside of Call of Duty Mobile.
Significantly, a new operator name ‘Wood’ has been uncovered in Warzone’s game files, which closely matches the name of Black Ops’ main protagonist and suggests he could be set to battle alongside Modern Warfare’s heroes.
Modern Warfare and Warzone Season 5 could also introduce classic Call of Duty multiplayer map Highrise.
