Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone Season 4 Roadmap and Trailer Revealed

The Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Warzone roadmaps are officially here, with Activision promising a "huge selection of free content along with events, challenges, and Camos to unlock." You can watch the launch trailer below and read the full overview right here.

The new roadmap includes additional info on the previously-teased Gundam collaboration, which will feature the original RX-78-2, Char's Zaku, and Witch From Mercury's Aerial. In addition, Activision is teasing a special secret collaboration, which already has fans speculating on the possibilities.

But the real headliner is Soap, who (sort of) returns in what Activision is calling an attempt to "honor his legacy." Along with two new Operators named Hammer and Void, the Season 4 Battle Pass will include two separate Soap skins, one of which will be available immediately at purchase.

While Soap is a beloved character, some fans have mixed feelings about his inclusiion in the Season 4 Battle Pass.

"Once again, Call of Duty resurrect an objectively dead character purely so they can sell skins for him," wrote YouTuber HiddenXperia. "Soap was literally shot in the head in MWIII's (awful) Campaign, now he's magically alive. I'm so happy I grew up playing CoD before it was ruined by aggressive live service."

In the meantime, there will be plenty of new content to wade through with Modern Warfare III getting three brand-new core 6v6 maps, including one set in Tokyo. The new season will also feature Demolition, Hyper Cranked, and Havoc, new Killstreakers, and other additions.

On the Warzone side of things, Season 4 includes updates to the Urzikstan Bunker and the Gulag along with a new vehicle in the Polaris RZR. The Tactical Sprint Boots have caused some buzz among fans, offering an "unlimited increase in your Tactical Spring Speed, and a reduction in fall damage."

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III and Warzone are currently slated to release May 29.
