With the new season, publisher Activision has added a new map, Hacienda, to Call of Duty: Mobile.

Located in the middle of the city, the Nuketown Temple will feature new architecture and fixtures, according to the publisher.
Call of Duty: Mobile Season 1: Heist will also add a new multiplayer mode called Red Envelope, a confirmed 10 vs. 10 kill mode where players must collect red envelopes instead of dog tags. These red envelopes will help you earn additional rewards, such as in-game credits and cosmetics. The new multiplayer mode Red Envelope is being added as part of the celebration of the Luar Year of the Tiger and will feature fireworks in the game, according to Activision.
