Warzone's latest event, Ground Fall, is set to kick off with the launch of Season 4 later this week.

Ground Fall and its exciting backstory were revealed in the Season 4 Cinematic trailer. Jackal has infiltrated the Jumpseat Satellite Ground Station located in South Africa, taking out several staff members responsible for the flight path of the objects' orbit in space. At the behest of his employer, the one staff member still breathing alters the trajectory of the satellites—causing them to hit the ground (ground fall) at two distinct locations.

Unsurprisingly, one of these locations is Warzone’s beloved Verdansk. The satellite crashed to the ground near the downtown area of the map, taking out a few structures and breaking up concrete in its wake.

The other landed in Algeria where Adler found it, braved enemy fire to reach it, and subsequently broke it open to get the data inside.

Call of Duty: Warzone "Ground Fall" Event

Despite the marked date of June 26, 1984 in the cinematic, this event will launch with Season 4 on Thursday, June 17 and run until June 24.

According to the latest developer blog post for the season, Ground Fall will have players scrambling over the map to "secure SAT-Links to score exclusive rewards" for their global profile. Additionally, they'll be able to take on challenges related to "new modes, maps, and weaponry" in Black Ops Cold War and new Points of Interest (POI) in Warzone.

Rewards for participating in this event include "Emblems, Calling Cards, and a Satellite Weapon Charm" and, of course, a good amount of experience. Players who complete all the objectives will receive an Epic-quality secondary arm blueprint that is "truly out of this world"

More details about the event will be available once it launches.
