The Haunting: New Halloween-Themed Update for Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

The latest season of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 (and Warzone 2) will begin on September 27th and is titled “The Haunting” as it will have a Halloween theme. In a recent blog post by Activision, they provided more details about the upcoming content for both games.

This season will feature a wide range of Halloween-themed content, adding a terrifying twist to the new game modes. It serves as a lead-up to the highly anticipated release of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. Leading up to the launch of the next installment, players can expect continuous updates, with the most prominent being The Haunting.

The Haunting update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 will start on October 17th worldwide. It will bring changes to the appearance of both Warzone and Modern Warfare 2 for a few weeks. Expect modified maps and various surprises.

The update will introduce several limited-time game modes, including “The Haunting: Operation Nightmare” and “The Haunting: Vondead.” In Operation Nightmare, players will investigate locations and eliminate high-value targets in a completely dark map. Vondead, on the other hand, features supernatural activities and a zombie outbreak in the city of Vondel, with a blood-red sky adding to the eerie atmosphere.

The popular Zombie Royale mode will also make a return, where eliminated players come back as undead creatures. Additionally, players can look forward to the Vondead Lockdown mode, which is a bloodier version of the previous limited-time mode.

Two multiplayer maps, The Asylum and Embassy, will receive Halloween-themed makeovers. The Asylum celebrates the Day of the Dead, while Embassy becomes the site of a devastating zombie attack.

The update also brings new game modes like Domination, Confirmed Kills, and Haunting Drop Zone Drop Scares, all with Halloween twists.

Prepare for a spooky experience in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2 with The Haunting update, offering a thrilling Halloween-themed gameplay experience.
