Infinity Ward has released the patch notes ahead of Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare’s new update, scheduled to go live in the early hours of Aug. 5.

The highlight of the update, of course, is the new seasonal content, which brings big changes to Warzone, new maps in multiplayer, and two new weapons, all along with a new battle pass. CoD players will have a good amount of content, as always, to power through over the coming weeks.

The patch notes also revealed a number of tweaks and bug fixes, and the addition of weapon inspect. Players can now inspect their weapons for a closer look, to get a better view of the camo, stickers, and charms.

The season five update will be available for download soon and the full patch notes can be found below:
