Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone are receiving a mid-season update tonight at 11 PM Pacific. Later this week, the Games of Summer kick off.

The mid-season update is called Season Five Reloaded. It introduces a new map and game modes in Modern Warfare and Warzone. Gunfight Tournament returns to Modern Warfare on a new map that takes place on the pitch level of Stadium. A new Ground War mode variant called Ground War Reinforced has Modern Warfare players fighting for flags in order to respawn downed teammates.

Warzone players can jump into a new game mode called King Slayer, which is a large-scale Team Deathmatch on Battle Royale. Teams fight to earn points by defeating hostile players. But in this mode, the circle doesn’t collapse; rather it moves around the map for an agile battle on the go. Eliminating one of the enemies’ top five scoring players (Kings) will award players additional points and a free killstreak.

The mid-season update comes just a few days before the kickoff of the Call of Duty Games of Summer global seasonal event. For the first time in Call of Duty franchise history, community members from around the world – both those who own Modern Warfare and free-to-play Warzone – will represent their country in single-player trials of skill. Games of Summer begins on August 28 and runs until September 7.
