New Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War leaks have offered more key info on the upcoming shooter's multiplayer, campaign, and Warzone updates.

Call of Duty: Warzone will soon get 200 player lobbies, developer Infinity Ward announced Monday.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Season 4 Reloaded launches at 23:00 PDT on June 29, or 2:00 EDT / 7:00 BST on June 30.

The update will vary from 22 to 36 gigabytes in size, according to Infinity Ward. "This new player count makes Warzone an even bigger Battle Royale experience, so get ready to drop in alongside 199 other members of this millions-strong community to cause havoc!" Activision says "With this update, Verdansk will now be able to hold up to 200 players in Battle Royale Quads". Supply-run contracts also have been added to the map, allowing players who make it to nearby buy stations to purchase vital upgrades and items at a discount. "Once a Juggernaut is sent to the Gulag, a new Juggernaut care package will drop on the map, so do your best to capture the suit and take on any squad that stands in your way". There's no glint on the Spotter Scope, so you can safely peek without giving away your position. This update will also introduce the Rytec AMR sniper to all three major modes, unlockable through in-game challenges - or with a blueprint from the store as part of the Lost Souls bundle.

The Reddit post also goes into further detail about the game's rumoured set of multiplayer maps, class system, and Warzone changes, and - taken together - it sounds like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War could shake things up as drastically as last year's title did for the franchise. Team Defender was, Activision says, first introduced nearly ten years ago, and returns as a "fast-paced objective game" with a twist.

"Once the Season Four Reloaded update is fully completed, it should minimally increase the overall digital footprint of the full version of Modern Warfare".
