Season 3 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its battle royale spinoff, Call of Duty: Warzone, officially kicks off Tuesday, April 8 on all platforms, according to a new trailer from Activision and Infinity Ward. The new season will bring quads mode — aka four-player squads — to Call of Duty: Warzone, as well as new skins and new weapons.

Warzone season 3 will also include changes to the loot pool, and new modes like Scopes and Scatter Guns (sniper rifles and shotguns only), according to a post on the Activision blog. “Furthermore, ground loot will have a continuous overhaul to diversify the strategies you can take across Warzone,” Activision said. “Of note, expect to see every weapon type with a silenced and non-silenced variant, allowing squads to kit themselves for silent operations...”

For Modern Warfare, season 3 will bring with it three new 6v6 multiplayer maps (Talsik Backlot, Hovec Sawmill, Aniyar Incursion), a new operator (Alex), new vehicle skins, and two new weapons (the SK5 marksman rifle, Renetti 9 mm sidearm) during launch week.

Talsik Backlot is a remaster of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s Backlot multiplayer map, and Aniyar Incursion is a condensed, 6v6 version of Aniyah Palace from Modern Warfare’s Ground War mode.

Season 3 will eventually include more new maps, such as Hardhat and the Gunfight-specific map, Aisle 9; new operators Ronin and Iskra; and new weapons and Gunsmith customs. More details on what to expect from season 3 and its new Battle Pass are available at Activision’s blog.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone are available on PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. Warzone is free to download.
