Call of Duty Modern Warfare is launching the Season 1 Battle Pass later today, introducing a whole new way to earn in-game content in a Call of Duty game for the first time ever.
The news was first announced some months back during Activision Blizzard’s quarterly earnings call.
Like many games these days, the Modern Warfare Battle Pass includes both a free and premium stream of content, which is exclusive to the season.
This, of course, means that once the season ends, you won't be able to earn the collectables.
Similar to how the infamous Fortnite Red Knight skin became so coveted because only players who played during Season 2 had earnt it.
Well, until Epic cashed in and plopped the skin in the Item Shop, much to long-time fans dismay.
We doubt that will happen in Call of Duty Modern Warfare though, so the gist is very much that you should earn everything you want from the season before it comes to an end.
Which leads us onto a very important point…
When does Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1 End?
At the time of writing, it doesn't appear as though Activision or Infinity Ward has officially announced a end date for Season 1.
And even if they had, we wouldn't rule out the possibility that they extend it, as some games occasionally have with new Seasons of content.
However, for the time being we have one date you can circle in your shiny new 2020 calendars.
According to the data miners who leaked the 104 Battle Pass Tiers some weeks back, the first season of Call of Duty Modern Warfare will start at 10AM PT on December 3 and end on January 28 at 10AM PT.
For those in the UK, that means a start time of 6pm GMT on December 3 and an end time of 6pm GMT on January 28, 2020.
Following the release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 1, we'll likely be given some new details courtesy of Activision and Infinity Ward, so stay tuned for more details later today.
For the time being, here's a quick reminder of the new content introduced in Season 1 which won't be removed from the game once it ends.
