Call of Duty Warzone added the much-requested Duos mode in a surprise playlist update on Friday.
The Warzone community has eagerly awaited news on Duos for many weeks, since it was the last of the core squad modes yet to be added to Battle Royale (although it’s been hinted that five-person squads could be introduced in future too).
The mode’s addition coincides with a Double XP weekend and the last of the game’s third Season. Warzone and Modern Warfare’s Season 4 will start June 3.
Activision announced the Season 4 start date alongside a new trailer on Wednesday, confirming campaign star Captain Price as the season’s flagship operator.
To conclude the current season, this weekend Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass tier progression will be activated for all Modern Warfare players including Warzone.
Warzone began teasing a Cold War theme this week when players were finally able to unlock bunker doors which had been present in the game map since launch.
Players later discovered how to use in-game phone messages to unlock a secret 11th bunker, which features scenery evocative of the Black Ops series including a war room, a number countdown, and a nuclear warhead.
It’s understood that the next Call of Duty game will be called Black Ops Cold War and eventually be unveiled via a Warzone meta-game. The reveal will likely coincide with an aesthetic reboot of the free-to-play game’s map.
