Activision is getting set to launch the third season of content for military shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Along with a new Battle Pass, as well as skins, weapons, maps and more to multiplayer, three new operators are expected to join the roster, including the return of campaign protagonist Alex.

Modern Warfare spoilers below

Alex is a CIA operative and one of Modern Warfare‘s player protagonists. Sympathetic to the plight of the Urzikstan rebels and their leader, Farah Karim, Alex nobly sacrifices himself in the campaign’s final moments, staying behind to ensure the demolition of a toxic gas factory. Or so we thought, as it seems your boy Alex made it out of the factory alive, and is now ready to sign up for Modern Warfare‘s intense multiplayer mode.

Alex is now sporting a prosthetic leg, suggesting that although he escaped with his life, he was seriously injured in the process. Developer Infinity Ward has received praise from fans online for featuring a player character with a prosthetic limb, a testament to the many soldiers who return to active duty despite injury.

Season 3 goes live in-game tomorrow, April 8. No doubt we will be hearing more specific details regarding the incoming multiplayer content very soon.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
