Call of Duty Season 3 is about to begin

Activision has already confirmed Call of Duty Season 3 is incoming.

The new season officially launches on April 22 – that’s tomorrow.

We’ve already learned much about what we’ll see, including new maps, weapons and Operators.

But a Twitter leak named WarzoneNews has leaked alleged details about a Warzone revamp.

The game is gearing up for some major changes

It reiterates previous leaks that Call of Duty Warzone is moving to a 1980s theme after a “nuke” event.

And it suggests that there are as many as six new “points of interest” in the new version of Verdansk.

Superstore and its surroundings have reportedly been transformed with an ‘80s theme.

Port is said to have a new design.

And Downtown is expected to remain largely the same, but with an “‘80s theme/construction theme”.

The leaker adds that Downtown will have more entrances into buildings.

Of course, Activision hasn’t confirmed these details – and likely won’t until an official announcement.

Until then, take all leaks and rumours with due caution.

So what’s already confirmed about Season 3? Plenty, apart from reported changes to Verdansk.

There are new Operators, with Wraith landing in launch week.

This is the Season 3 roadmap, as revealed by Activision

She’ll be follow later in season by Knight and Antonov.

You’re getting six new weapons, including the iconic PPSh submachine gun.

And there are four new multiplayer maps incoming.

There’s Yamantau in launch week, which is a 6v6 map set at the crumbled remains of a Soviet observatory.

There’s also Diesel, which offers 6v6 gameplay as well as 2v2 and 3v3 Gunfights.

Standoff is another 6v6 map, but the Black Ops 2 remake won’t arrive until mid-season.

And then there’s Duga, a Multi-Team map coming in-season – set in the Ural Mountains.

There are new vehicles, Zombies content and more coming too.
