MW3 SEASON 5 START TIMES & DOWNLOAD

According to the in game battlepass timer, MW3 Season 5 is scheduled to launch on July 24th. So far, Modern Warfare III has been on track with every new seasonal drop, without any delays to the beginning or middle of any season. If July 24th does stick, then expect all content to become playable at 9am PT, 11am CT, and 12pm EST.

As we’ve seen with previous seasonal updates, the preload for new content should become available first on Playstation and Battlenet around two days before the season begins. Around July 22nd or July 23rd is when players should be able to download any necessary updates to prepare for Season 5.

MW3 SEASON 5 FILE SIZE & PRELOAD

Judging from the download size of previous MW3 Seasons, the file should be approximately 16-30GB in size, which is subject to change. While Warzone is isn’t getting a new map this time, MW3 Multiplayer and Zombies are expected to receive a large amount of content which may increase the file size.

During the last few seasons of MW2, larger than usual title updates ended up decreasing the overall game size in exchange for needing to download 20-40GB of data for the new content. It’s likely that future MW3 seasons will have significantly smoother download windows than MW2 did.

MULTIPLAYER CONTENT

As of now, it’s unknown which maps are being added for 6v6, but it’s likely we’ll receive at least one or two original environments.

A specialist perk vest may have also been found, as dataminers discovered something called the speciality vest. The specialist perk is already a package within Warzone.

NEW MAPS & MODES

Neither gunfight or ground war have received support in several months, so it’s possible those modes get some love in Season 5.

It’s also likely a new iteration of G3T H1GH or another Vortex reimagining gets added to the Multiplayer mix later this summer.

New modes such as Warrior and Tug of War were found, with details about the latter confirming it’s a variant of Kill Confirmed where collecting tags depletes the enemies score.

ZOMBIES CONTENT

The season 5 update is expected to feature the conclusion to the MW3 Zombies season. One final Dark Aether rift, a boss fight against the entity and likely another set of schematics should be dropping.

It’s also possible the rumored PVP mode for MW3 Zombies finally sees the light of day, after several months of leaks seem to suggest the mode isn’t cancelled.

WARZONE CONTENT

Unfortunately, not much is known about the content drop for Warzone Season 5. If anything, this creates more hype for the marketing since plenty of surprises will be in store for the community.
