Looking for news on the MW2 Season 1 release date and what it contains? If you’ve already jumped into the FPS game at launch, you’re already playing in the pre-season and making a start unlocking items by completing missions, including the co-op Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops mode.
When is the first Modern Warfare 2 season starting? The MW2 Season 1 release date is on November 16. It arrives alongside Warzone 2, bringing the highly anticipated DMZ mode. The first season has a returning fan-favourite Modern Warfare 2 map, and players can progress through the battle pass for two free weapons, while Modern Warfare 2 Vault Edition owners can unlock the seasonal battle pass with 50 tier skips.
Modern Warfare 2 pre-season dates
The pre-season of Modern Warfare 2 is already underway, and you can start unlocking items ahead of Season 1. Leveling up through the military ranks unlocks all base loadout items, and you unlock all attachments by completing each weapon’s progression tree.
Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops and Raids
This two-player co-op experience is an extension of the campaign and a refined version of the 2019 Spec Ops mode. Three Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops missions are available at the start of the first season.
Around halfway through the first season, when Season 1 Reloaded begins, Raids are coming to Modern Warfare 2 too. This is a new type of mode described in a Call of Duty blog post as “a three-player cooperative experience requiring teamwork and strategic, puzzle-solving thinking in-between bouts of intense combat.”
