Warzone's next update is here and Raven Software has finally dropped the Season 6 Patch Notes. This gives us details on everything coming and what to expect from the update - also, how much storage space you're going to need. Here's the latest...
DOWNLOAD SIZE - How much space will you need?
Warzone's Season 6 update is out now - but how much storage space are you going to need to keep free? Raven Software has shared the following information:
- PlayStation 4
- 30.6 GB
- PlayStation 5
- 30.6 GB
- Xbox One
- 30.1 GB
- Xbox Series X|S
- 30.1 GB
- 49.3 GB - Just Warzone
- 40.5 GB - Warzone and Modern Warfare
It's important to note that Warzone doesn't have a native next-gen release version - this means that the download size is going to be the same for both generations. In addition to this, you're going to need at least 10 GB of additional space available for the Patch Copying process.
REGIMENTS - They're changing a bit for Vangaurd
Vanguard is due to release in less than a month and Call of Duty is moving from a "Regiment" system to a "Clan" system when it does. We don't exactly know what the difference between the two is just yet, but this means that your Regiment in Warzone is being "frozen" for the time being.
No one gets in - and no one gets out. Well... you can leave, but if you want to be in a Clan when Vanguard launches, you're going to need to be in a Regiment already. This isn't the end of the world, because you can get into a new one as soon as Vanguard comes out - you just won't get the bonus a Regiment offers for the next month.
- Regiment matchmaking options - easily find your friends in-game
- Regiment Tags - essentially a matching Clan Tag for your Regiment
- Happy Hour - a Double XP boost for one hour a day
RELEASE TIME - When does the update drop?
Warzone Season 6 is expected to start at the same time as Black Ops Cold War Season 6 - due to the cross-progression and shared content. This means we should see the update become available to download and install - and then the content should be live - at the following times:
- 21:00 October 6th - PST
- 23:00 October 6th - EST
- 04:00 October 7th - BST
We don't know how much space the title update will require, yet, but expect it to be similar to Season 5's update as the amount of new content is similar. You will also need an additional amount of space spare to account for Warzone's copying process - this can require up to 80GB spare space to do.
NEW BLACK OPS CONTENT - What's coming?
Black Ops Cold War Season 6 is introducing a selection of new content to Warzone in Season 6. We have it listed below:
- NEW OPERATORS
- Alex Mason - NATO
- Fuse - Warsaw Pact
- NEW WEAPONS
- BATTLE PASS
- 100 Tiers of Rewards for both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone
- PRESTIGE LEVELS
- Another set of seasonal Prestige Levels for both Black Ops Cold War and Warzone
MAP CHANGES - What's changing with Verdansk?
The Black Ops Cold War content isn't the only new content coming to Warzone, though. There's a series of map changes being made that should freshen up Verdansk '84 and prepare Warzone for the final chapter of Black Ops Cold War's post-launch narrative.
Downtown and Stadium have been cracked by underground explosions. These POI locations and the urban area in the centre of the current Warzone map will be disrupted and changed.
New WW2 Bunkers are also being added to Verdansk '84, following the explosions that have caused the fissures to appear in the middle of the map. These will be important in continuing the Warzone narrative into Vanguard's release.
The Gulag is changing again - however, this time, it's going to throw-back to the original Gulag layout and honour the Modern Warfare era Gulag maps. There are going to be some alterations, though, but Raven Software hasn't commented on these yet.
PATCH NOTES - When should we see them?
At the moment, we don't have any Patch Notes for Warzone Season 6 - however, these should be on the way soon. Raven Software tends to release these a handful of hours before their major updates. This means we should see something from Raven Software resembling Patch Notes around 10:00 PST / 13:00 EST / 18:00 BST on October 6th,
