Call of Duty: Warzone Season 4 Changes
New map – Fortune's Keep
Teased a while back on Call of Duty's Twitter handle, Warzone is getting a replacement for the highly popular Rebirth Island map. Although the new Fortune's Keep map will be replacing Rebirth Island when Season 4 launches, the latter will make a return in the near future.
Caldera map changes
As a tribute to veteran Warzone players, the developers are adding a well-known point of interest (POI) from Verdansk to Caldera. Players will now be able to drop at Storage Town and visit several other new micro-POIs and loot vaults throughout the map. Moreover, the vegetation in Caldera will be reduced by 50 percent to improve overall visibility.
New modes and features
Here's a list of the new modes and features that will be added during Season 4:
- Fortune's Keep Resurgence
- Golden Plunder
- Titanium Trial's: Endurance (In-Season)
- Rebirth of the Dead (In-Season)
- Black Market Run Contract
- Cash Extraction
- EMP Grenade
- Armored SUV (In-Season)
- Portable Redeploy (In-Season)
Call of Duty: Vanguard Season 4 Changes
Shin No Numa and Round-Based Zombies
Everyone knows that Vanguard Zombies wasn't very well received by the Call of Duty community. After months of experimentation with the gameplay, the developers have now decided to take Zombies back to its roots by adding a round-based style play.
Moreover, the traditional Zombies experience will be available on the fan-favorite map of Shi No Numa. The Season 4 update for Vanguard Zombies will also include a new quest, new narrative, new wonder weapon quest, and a new pack-a-punch camo.
New Multiplayer maps and modes
Just like the last seasonal update, Vanguard Multiplayer will be receiving a minor dose of content with a mere two new maps and one game mode besides the new weapons and operators:
- USS Texas 1945 (Launch)
- Desolation (In-Season)
- Blueprint Gun Game (Launch)
