Season 04 introduces the brand-new Vondel Battle Royale map, six new Multiplayer maps at launch and more across Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone. Season 04 launches on PlayStation on June 14. Let’s dive into the full details of what players can expect.
Warzone introduces Vondel, new Lockdown Mode, and more
A waterfront district of a Baroque European city, Vondel will launch with three supported modes, including Resurgence, DMZ, and a brand-new mode — Lockdown. Traditional Battle Royale launches at mid-season.
Lockdown: Score points by capturing and holding zones around the map. Matches last about double that of a traditional Hardpoint match.
Expanded DMZ Features: Vondel on DMZ adds new story missions, the Phalanx faction, the Signal Intelligence Contract, and dynamic fog.
New Resurgence features
Available across all Resurgence playlists, the Dynamic Resurgence Timer automatically adjusts a squad’s respawn timers should one or more squadmates disconnect from the match. When a squadmate gets eliminated, the Nemesis Icon temporarily indicates the general location of the enemy Operator.
New items and event
Drive on land and water with the new four passenger Tactical Amphibian Vehicle. Complete objectives in the Assault on Vondel Launch Event to unlock the Favorite Supply Box, awarding the weapons assigned to your Favorite Loadout, and the Reinforcement Flare to bring back fallen teammates. Boost your defenses with the mid-season High-Capacity Plate Carrier.
New Public Event — High Stakes: Capture fallen crates to earn Double Weapon and Player XP for the duration of the match, stacking with other XP bonuses.
Season 04 Combat Pack
Starting on June 21, PlayStation Plus members can download the Season 04 Combat Pack, headlined by a new Oni Operators Skin featuring a carbon fiber armor-enhanced wetsuit.

New Core, Gunfight, and Battle Maps
Showdown (Core Map, Launch): A faithful recreation of the map originally featured in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Showdown consists of the central courtyard, the two-level structure surrounding it, and its outer perimeter. Operators attempting to cross the courtyard will face fierce resistance against enemies firing between the arched columns, though some ground cover offers a fighting chance against their attacks. The perimeter caters to long-ranged combat with its long, narrow lanes, though locked metal gates to the north and south keep players from rushing straight through.
Note the pathways in and out of the courtyard walkways: two staircases lead from the ground floor to the upper path, while direct access to the top floor is possible through traversing over the top of the outer metal gates. Versatility is king here, as you’ll often need to rapidly switch between close- to long-ranged combat. Operators equipped to handle the map’s long sight lines as well as its tight turns are wel
