Call of Duty: Warzone season 6 is coming next week, and Infinity Ward has given players the first real information about the it’s new additions. The biggest features this time around are subways, which were originally shown in season 6’s first trailer. It seems they’ll be an important part of how players get around Verdansk going forward.
According to a new post on the subway system released by Infinity Ward on Thursday, the underground rail will be called the Metro in-game. The Metro service will have several stations that players can enter to board the train. Each of these Metro stations will be basically identical, which means that you should always know how to navigate when you’re inside.
Each one will descend below Verdansk and have areas where players can board the trains going either clockwise or counterclockwise around the map. There’s even a ticker in the station that will let you know where each train is currently stopped. But, Infinity Ward is careful to remind players not to go on the tracks, as it will mean a quick and certain death. These stations will also have small ladders that players can use for a quick escape if the Metro station is no longer a safe place to be.
Once players are onboard their chosen train, they’ll be treated to the fastest mode of transportation in all of Verdansk. On top of being a quick way to get from one side of the map to the other, the subway also has a few other nice features. For instance, it won’t travel to an area of the map that’s outside of the circle.
As an added safety precaution the train is a no-fighting area. That means that it won’t start moving until all the shooting in and around it has finished. So if there’s a shootout on-board, or even between players in the station and on the train, the Metro is staying put until someone wins and the fighting stops.
Infinity Ward’s post also mentions that there will be a few other surprises for players to discover once the season 6 patch goes live on Sept. 29, but that’s all the developer is willing to reveal right now.
