The next title update for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War is almost here and there's going to be new Operators joining both of these titles in Season 5 Reloaded. Well... They're not exactly new Operators, but they are worth talking about. One of them is someone we knew about - The other is an Operator Skin that could be the first in a long line of "total conversion" skins... If done right, anyway. Here's everything you need to know.
When does Season 5 Reloaded actually drop?
Warzone's next title update - which is also going to be released for Black Ops Cold War - is due to arrive next week at the following times:
- 21:00 September 8th - PST
- 23:00 September 8th - EST
- 04:00 September 9th - BST
The update should be available to pre-download on both Warzone and Black Ops Cold War at least 24 hours before - however, it's important to note that not all of the Season 5 Reloaded content is coming at the launch of this mid-season update.
As you can see in the content roadmap - seen below, or on the Call of Duty Blog here - there's a lot of the content that's still labelled "In-Season"... We know, it's annoying.
NEW OPERATORS - Everything you need to know
We know it's less than ideal, but Call of Duty has confirmed that Jason Hudson is going to be available "following the launch" of the Season 5 Reloaded update for Warzone and Black Ops Cold War. This means we won't see him on September 8th, or 9th, and it could be another two or three weeks before he arrives.
"Born and raised in Washington, D.C. with dreams that he would serve his country like his older brother did in World War II, Hudson saw action in Korea before earning magna cum laude honors in one of D.C.’s top research universities and entering the CIA."
Unfortunately, Judge Dredd is actually going to be a Legendary Operator Skin for Beck and not his own Operator - like Rambo and John McClaine. The Tracer Pack: Judge Dredd Store Bundle will come with the following items:
- Judge Dredd - Beck Operator Skin
- Comic Strip - Beck Operator Skin
- Quick Judgement - SMG Weapon Blueprint
- Arbitrator Rifle - Assault Rifle Weapon Blueprint
- Lawgiver - Pistol Weapon Blueprint
- Incendiary - Finishing Move
- Book of Law - Weapon Charm
- Judge's Watch - Wrist Accessory
- ??? - Animated Calling Card
- ??? - Animated Emblem
This will be available in-season, like Hudson, but we don't know when just yet.
" Uncompromising and unwavering his commitment to the Law, Judge Dredd’s mere presence is enough to strike terror in the hearts of any criminal. Beck wears this very uniform as the conduit for Dredd in Black Ops Cold War and Warzone."
