Season 1 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 begins on Nov. 16 and brings with it a treasure trove of new content. For those playing Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer, classic maps such as Shoot House and Shipment make a welcomed return. Players will also get to test their might in the Tier 1 playlist filled with more challenging settings and players.

Warzone fans will have the chance to embark on special extraction missions in the all-new DMZ mode as well as experience a completely revamped Gulag that changes how players drop back into matches. Both Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 will share a new battle pass that presents a more non-linear path to completion.
