The beginning of a new year is a perfect time to introduce fresh content into the game, and COD Mobile developers are bringing a lot of it this January.
Probably the most exciting things are two new multiplayer maps, including the legendary Hacienda map from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, now adjusted to fit the mobile style of play.
But that is not the only new map coming in Season 1. As Lunar New Year is inching closer, it's a perfect time for a Chinese-themed map, Chinese Nuketown!
Then, there are two new weapons, the Kilo 141 fully automatic assault rifle and the PPSh-41 submachine gun.
That's, of course, not all, as there's a new tactical grenade, two new modes, weapon balance changes, new features and quality of life improvements, and so much more!
Check out below everything that's new!
