'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Season 5 Trailer Reveals Shadow Company, Confirms Release Date
A brand new trailer for Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare has been released, introducing us to a new faction for the games - Shadow Company.
We also have a release date for when Season 5, and fans won't have to wait long at all. August 5th is set to be the big day (that's this coming Wednesday), although we don't know yet just how big the update will be.
So, who exactly are Shadow Company? Well, they consist of three brand new operators - Roslin "Roze" Helms, Velikan, and Marcus "Lerch" Ortega, who acts as the company's leader. You can find out a little info on each of these new characters below, via the Activision blog.
- 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.
The Activision blog says that Shadow Company will be "disrupting Verdansk" when they drop into the game with the upcoming Season, but exactly what that means and how it will manifest in the games is anybody's guess.
