The next Call of Duty Modern Warfare update could be a big one for COD Warzone fans across PS4, Xbox One and PC.
While Activision hasn’t said much about its plans for the Haunting of Verdansk, it appears that we will be finding out more in the coming days.
Dataminers have shared a few snippets ahead of time, including new cosmetic bundles and a special mode for gamers to experience.
According to the latest news shared with the COD Community, the Haunting of Verdansk will make some significant changes to the map.
This will include bringing a Warzone Night Mode option to the Battle Royale experience, and may also mean zombies coming to the game.
While zombies haven’t been officially shown by developers Infinity Ward, a few shots of a Night Mode were featured in the Season 6 trailer.
While Activision has remained coy on its plans, they have started to drop Easter eggs onto the map, including creepy laughs and other noises being heard in certain areas.
And with the new Halloween event’s scheduled release date getting closer, there’s a good chance of the big update news being revealed very soon.
Activision usually shares early notes via a blog post the day before a patch, meaning we could get some news in the next 24-hours.
Gamers are expecting the Haunting of Verdansk Call of Duty Modern Warfare to begin on Tuesday, October 20.
The timing will be a little different depending on what timzone you live in, meaning some gamers will get access earlier in their day.
For COD fans in the UK, the next Call of Duty Modern Warfare update is expected to go live at around 6pm BST, although nothing official has been shared yet.
For gamers in the United States, that would mean the Haunting in Warzone launching at 10am PDT.
By Modern Warfare standards this could be a large update, especially when you consider what new stuff could be added.
Playlist changes are expected, with more cosmetic bundles heading to the Call of Duty Store, and Activision confirming several limited-time modes being released.
Recent rumours suggest a Night Mode will be launching, as well as something connected to the undead appearing in Verdansk.
This is expected to be available sometime between October 20 and November 3, when the Haunting event is scheduled to end.
According to the latest rumours, the new mode will make it possible to comeback as a zombie and have the chance to regain your life if you down another player.
It will also be possible for players to buyback team mates in the normal fashion, although this all remains a rumour at this point.
Here are a few other references made to Halloween content coming to Warzone during Season 6:
“With Halloween approaching, the Store is set to stock up on a wide variety of blueprint and Operator bundles.
“Leading off the Season, expect the ‘Undead Forces’ Store bundle to bring a faithful, undead companion into the fray with a new Finishing Move, and a new Operator Bundle for Velikan that gives him an even more dark and foreboding set of armor.
“Later in the Season, prepare for more Tracer Packs, an Operator pack that continues the gold-plated trend of flashy skins, and even a couple of Halloween surprises as the nights grow longer and the more twisted games begin.”
“Grizzly End” Cargo Truck Skin: Strike terror and fear into your enemies with this Halloween inspired skin, exclusive to those who reach Tier 100 in the Battle Pass.
“Vehicle Skins: Get a fresh, Halloween-inspired exterior for four different Warzone vehicles – the “Mutated” ATV, “Flight of Torment” Helicopter, “From the Deep” SUV and “Stained” Tac Rover skins – as part of the Season Six Battle Pass.”
