Call of Duty’s latest midseason update, Mercenaries of Fortune Reloaded, will hit Warzone and Vanguard next week on July 27, Activision announced today.
As part of the free content drop, Warzone will be receiving a Portable Redeploy Balloon equipment, a nitrous-boosted Armored SUV, and a limited-time mode called Rebirth of the Dead that will bring Zombies to Rebirth Island.
A new weapon is also being added to both titles and it’s called the Vargo-S assault rifle. Activision says it “trades firepower for improved accuracy and fire rate” and that it’s a gun that “excels in medium and long-range engagements.”
“Accuracy is king with the Vargo-S Assault Rifle, paired with a high fire rate for added aggression,” the company said. “Though outclassed in power, its reliability finds success in a variety of Gunsmith configurations, from fast-handling and snappy for tight mid-range play to adding a scope and additional stability to better compete from a distance.”
New store items coming in the update include Terminator-themed items, including operator packs for both Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 and SkyNet’s T-1000 from Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Another new operator, Ikenna Olowe, also joins the roster.
To celebrate the Terminator arrivals, a new mode called Titanium Trials will be coming. It’s a souped-up Iron Trials, where players will have 300 HP and the Tempered perk will appear more frequently as ground loot.
For Vanguard, a new multiplayer map named Desolation will be added to the online title.
“Traverse the winding alleys and confined shanties on the ground floor where close-quarters combat can erupt at any moment or over the rooftops and walkways above, mantling from position to position,” Activision said. “The listening post itself lies near the center, right in the middle of the chaos. The Operators who combine fast reflexes with smart movement are sure to find success here.”
Mercenaries of Fortune Reloaded will go live next week on Wednesday, July 27.
