Infinity Ward and Activision have finally revealed the official details for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone‘s upcoming Haunting of Verdansk Halloween update.
Let’s start with something we’ve already covered: the SAW and Texas Chainsaw Massacre content packs. It turns out those leaks we talked about were surprisingly accurate, so be sure to check out that report if you want a closer look at those film-themed updates and all the new cosmetics they’ll introduce.
Joining those horror movie icons is an original Call of Duty creation: Dr. Karlov. Described as an “infamous Verdansk urban legend,” Karlov was a scientist obsessed with the effects and potential of electricity. His obsession is reflected in his various cosmetic unlocks which include an electric throwing knife and electric weapon blueprints as well as a skin modeled after the doctor himself. You can get a slightly better look at the various new cosmetics via this roadmap image for the upcoming update:
As for Warzone, players will be thrilled to hear that this update will finally allow them to deploy into a night themed version of the Verdansk map referred to as “Going Dark.” Available only in “select Warzone modes,” this update is actually more than just Verdansk after dark. It’s actually filled with various horror Easter eggs that include “the poltergeist of a chainsaw-wielding killer” and “a ghost train.” It’s a safe bet that Infinity Ward hasn’t revealed all of the ghosts and scares that will be spread throughout this map, so be sure to keep your eyes open.
