Call of Duty Modern Warfare Update, Season 1 release date and Battle Pass news

Call of Duty Modern Warfare has released multiple updates for the game since launch, on top of various hotfixes and patches to add new content or address changes.

However, the biggest update for the game is coming this week, as Activision and Infinity Ward prepare to release, what they are describing, as "the biggest free content drop in franchise history."

That's because Call of Duty is moving away from its traditional post-launch DLC we've seen for years and instead to a series of Seasons, filled with free content.

This update is also arriving for all platforms at the same time. So no more exclusivity for PlayStation for X many days.

So PS4, Xbox One and PC players should all receive the update at the same time.

As well as introducing a new Modern Warfare Battle Pass with 100 tiers to unlock, Season 1 will also add additional maps and modes to the game.

So without further ado, here's everything you'll need to know before the update drops this week.

When is the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1 Release Date?

Infinity Ward has stated that Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1 has a release date set for Tuesday, December 3, 2019.

Season 1 will, of course, require a new update for the game and we'll no doubt see a fresh set of patch notes released for the game as well.

Not all content is likely to arrive straight away, with Activision already confirming that some content will arrive in a couple of weeks.

“Note that some of this content may drop later than the Season One start date of December 3, and additional content may be added to Season One,” the latest message from Activision reads.

Thankfully, this should hopefully be confirmed in an updated Call of Duty Modern Warfare roadmap on the day of launch. Again, something Activision has hinted at previously:

“Check back here on December 3 where we’ll fully reveal the 100 tiers of the Battle Pass and reveal Season One in much greater detail.”

What time is Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1 releasing?

Neither Infinity Ward of Activision has stated when the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1 pass will launch.

However, based on past updates it seems fairly likely that this will arrive in the afternoon for everyone in the UK.

So expect to see the content go live at around 7pm GMT.

We wouldn't also be surprised to see more information detailed by the studio's senior communications manager, Ashton Williams, who has since launch done a fantastic job of communicating with the fans of the game.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1 Content
