Well, here’s something I wasn’t expecting……Call of Duty just dropped a new event called Shadow Siege. Dropping you in a squad on the Warzone Map Al Mazrah.
There’s some pre-able with a clip of getting you and the team pumped. Then you drop and off you go.
But this isn’t Warzone as we know it. It’s actually be really cleverly put together. All players are actually on the same team. It’s a PvE event in Warzone! Thanks to Frostos, we ran it a couple of times last night and got to experience all that it’s offering.
I think the best way to look at it, is the events at the end of a Fortnite Chapter. It’s really slick, ties-in with the narrative of Modern Warfare III and gives you rewards, too.
Credit where credit it due here. It’s fun, it’s essentially an interactive advert that gets you invested, and well…..now I’m down to clown in Modern Warfare III!
I’ll be honest, I haven’t finished the Modern Warfare II campaign yet, and I was a little miffed at the speed in which a sequel is coming out. But this has gone a long way to helping me come around.
Get ready for an adrenaline-pumping adventure as Call of Duty enthusiasts embark on a thrilling mission in the upcoming Shadow Siege event, a heart-pounding experience that combines intense combat, strategic gameplay, and the excitement of a worldwide reveal. Join the ranks of Shadow Company as they team up with the Urzikstan Liberation Force to uncover a hidden threat beneath Al Mazrah’s Zaya Observatory. Here’s your inside scoop on what to expect from this electrifying event.
Shadow Company Unleashed
Shadow Company, in collaboration with the Urzikstan Liberation Force and its leaders Farah Karim and Alex Keller, has discovered disturbing intelligence regarding a covert arsenal concealed beneath Al Mazrah’s Zaya Observatory. As a dedicated Operator, you’ll be tasked with executing a high-stakes operation that not only promises heart-pounding action but also offers a sneak peek into the highly anticipated Modern Warfare III.
Event Timeline and Objectives
The Shadow Siege event kicks off on August 17 and runs until August 21 at 10:30 A.M. PT. During this time, all brave Operators are encouraged to jump into the action and complete the Rogue Arsenal operation. This mission is jam-packed with challenges that will push your skills to the limit and reward you with valuable loot.
The Phases of Shadow Siege
The Rogue Arsenal operation is divided into three exhilarating phases:
Phase I: Secure the Missile Launchers
Upon entering the battle, your squad’s primary objective is to secure one of eight missile launchers scattered around Al Mazrah. The Zaya Observatory becomes the target, as a barrage of missiles transforms the landscape and sets the stage for the next phase.
Phase II: Collect Gas Canisters
The revelation of an underground weapons facility triggers the next phase, where all Operators must work together to collect 45 gas canisters. Navigate through dangerous terrain, switch to third-person perspective while carrying canisters, and ensure your squad’s safety by utilizing durable gas masks.
Phase III: Exfil
As the mission reaches its climax, all Operators must swiftly locate the exfil point while facing the expanding threat of the gas circle. Time is of the essence, and teamwork is paramount as you strive to evacuate the area before it’s too late.
