Despite the halfway point of Warzone Season 5 Battle Pass being October 5th, sources with knowledge of Season 5 Reloaded plans have said the mid-season update will launch on Wednesday, September 28th.
Activision is yet to confirm the official release date, but we know that the Season 5 Battle Pass will expire on November 16th, which is the launch of Warzone 2.0.
Warzone Season 5 Reloaded will include two brand-new assault rifles, the BP50 and the Lienna 57. Both weapons were officially revealed in the Season 5 blog post, saying “Add three other armaments throughout the season: the Valois Revolver [already released] plus the BP50 and Lienna 58 Assault Rifles.”
In addition to the two new assault rifles, two new villains will be coming to Caldera; Gabriel Rorke and Seraph.
Rorke is known for playing the main antagonist in Call of Duty: Ghost and Seraph first appearing in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3.
“Rorke graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and became a captain in the Marines. During an assassination mission in Caracas, Venezuela, Rorke braved the flooding city to locate and kill General Diego Almagro, leader of the Federation. During the chaos of his squad’s extraction, Rorke was left behind. He was found by the Federation, who brainwashed away his loyalties, turning him into a man with an undying vendetta against his own.”, the Call of Duty blog reads.
It continues for Seraph “Seraph grew up in the Singapore Quarantine Zone as the daughter of a high-ranking officer in the 54 Immortals. She honored her lineage and excelled within the syndicate, becoming its youngest-ever enforcer. She is a living embodiment of the 54I’s will, strictly quelling dissent within its ranks while projecting the syndicate’s force and ambition wherever it’s needed. Her dedication and skills are unmatched, as she proved when she willingly offered her own arm in return for the honor of receiving a cybernetic limb from the 54I.”
It’s currently unknown is this will be the last ever Battle Pass for the original Warzone, but sources have suggested that the game will continue support. Unfortunately, sources did not entail if this will include content, or if it will just be patch updates.
