The Battle Pass will bring new additions to the battle royale, as you’ll have the opportunity to try out new Multiplayer maps, game modes, and challenges while earning free rewards through ranking up in the game.
New Call of Duty maps: Oasis and Coastal
In a tweet on April 3, the devs released a teaser video for Season 3’s new map, Coastal, which is already part of the Chinese version. This map has a similar aesthetic to CSGO and is sure to be a fan-favorite for Search and Destroy.
Another map being added is Oasis which is from Modern Warfare, and is set in a “luxurious desert hotel.” This medium-sized area “challenges Operators to battle it out across the hotel courtyard, spa, and parking lot, using every opportunity to outflank and outsmart opponents.”
New multiplayer modes
Season 3 will add two new game modes to the battle royale. In Swords & Stones, “Operators deploy with melee weapons and grenades only.” You can increase your movement and attack speed by taking down foes.
