While Modern Warfare 3 Ranked Play offers new rewards for launch, Zombies mode content won’t arrive until the mid-season. This includes continuing the Dark Aether story, Warlord Rainmaker, and upcoming Schematics.

For Warzone Season 3, we have the highly-anticipated return of the beloved Rebirth Island. It’ll be the central hub for Warzone Ranked Play, featuring many helpful points of interest. Battle Royale users can utilize the map in the 44 max player match, along with a Rebirth Resurgence game mode set for mid-season.

Don’t forget that Warzone Mobile will also be included for MW3 and Warzone Season 3. Any weapons and attachments collected, whether on console, PC, or mobile, are accessible across all devices through the Connected Content system. New maps and modes are transitioning over to this platform, too, with Rust and Plunder Mode releasing on launch.
