In a blog post today, Call of Duty creator Activision gave us a detailed look at Modern Warfare 3’s first season (2023), which will include new multiplayer maps, a returning game mode, and a few Zombies mode updates.
Season 1 will bring three new maps to the 6v6 multiplayer rotation. “Meat” takes place in a cozy East Bay butcher shop, “Greece” is an idyllic coastal town, and “Rio” lets you photograph your friends in a trendy Brazilian mall.

If you and your best friend are looking for some 2v2 action, then you’re in luck, because the Gunfight game mode will also return with the first season of Modern Warfare 3. It looks like for now, you’ll have to settle for A single map, a military training center designed for four-player mode.
The next chapter of Modern Warfare Zombies will also kick off with Enter the Rift, which will send our undead slayers to a mysterious gateway called the Dark Aether Rift, alongside a new weapon that turns enemies into allies with cheer-shaped cheers. ball and new equipment that will “test the unlockable player’s skills,” according to the post.
The season will also include content for Call of Duty’s battle royale mode, Warzone, via a new map called Urzikstan, which the blog describes as “a cityscape incorporating 11 major points of interest.” Warzone will also receive gameplay updates to bring its meta more in line with recent Call of Duty games (slide cancel and Tac-Stance both received a Legend).
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 got off to a bit of a rocky start, as they recently had to remove some multiplayer maps due to some pretty egregious spawns, and our reviews of the campaign, zombies mode, and multiplayer each fell below of the high level of the series.
