Big changes are on the way for Call of Duty: Warzone. You can watch the season five trailer here:
One notable difference is that the stadium - located near the game's downtown area - will be opened up, allowing players to loot and fight within it.
A train is also being added to the map, giving players yet another space to loot and fight - two favoured pastimes of Call of Duty fans the world over.
The trailer also briefly shows some kind of grappling device, which can be used to reach vantage points on top of buildings and the like.
Season five will also welcome the arrival of new faction Shadow Company.
The faction consists of three brand new operators - Roslin 'Roze' Helms, Velikan, and Marcus 'Lerch' Ortega, who acts as the company's leader.
An Activision blog post has gone into a little bit more detail about the characters:
- Lerch hails from Plano, Texas and is a former member of the U.S. Marine Corps. Known on the battlefield for his enthusiasm and success in regards to eliminating the enemy, it was better to have Lerch with you rather than against you. Following USMC, civilian life didn't suit Lerch, so he re-entered the fight in the private sector and is considered a one-man force multiplier. When the Shadow Company CEO came across Lerch's dossier, he was the perfect combination of skill and moral flexibility. There's no contract Lerch won't take on nor challenge he won't face which is how he finds himself in Verdansk leading the other Operators of Shadow Company.
- Not much is known about Velikan. Dressed in full body armour for protection in battle and to hide his identity, little is confirmed about this Operator. A shadow of a shadow. Tales of his exploits are written off as fairytales at best and gross exaggerations at worst. Those who know him never speak ill of him. Whether it's due to fear or respect, no one knows.
- Rozlin "Roze" Helms joined the Shadow Company after migrating from the Allegiance faction Jackals. Previously, Roze cut ties with the Armed Services and returned to support her family and ailing father. Periodically in contact with Mace, now a PMC who left the Army after abandoning his post in protest of combat orders he deemed illegal, Roze gained entry into the Jackals mercenary group. Now Roze is letting her skill prove her worth as she provides support to Shadow Company while remaining on cordial terms with Mace.
Shadow Company will be 'disrupting Verdansk' with the drop of season five - so I guess we'll find out what exactly that means come 7am Wednesday (BST).
