The Season 6 update rolled out overnight so players can dive into the new content right now.

Warzone’s original gulag has been brought back to Verdansk, and a number of points of interest (POIs) have been added.

As the Warzone blog points out, the gulag is almost identical to Modern Warfare’s Gunfight map so veterans should be able to breeze through the area.

We’ve also got the showdown between Adler and Stitch, the finale to Black Ops Cold War Zombies, and something spooky for Halloween with The Haunting seasonal event.

There’s also prepping going on for Call of Duty: Vanguard going on with WWII era bunkers popping up, and a regiment transition ahead of the Clan system.
