Nicki will join returning Call of Duty veteran Snoop Dog, as well as rapper 21 Savage as part of an in-game celebration of hip-hop to mark the 50th anniversary of the genre.
“As part of Call of Duty celebrating 50 years of Hip Hop, everyone will receive free hip hop War Tracks for logging in between August 7 and August 16,” Activision announced.
“Simply go online in Modern Warfare II and Call of Duty: Warzone on four separate days within that time period – an easy task for those that play daily or even only on weekends – to receive a free gift.”
The event will grant a track from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, although the tracks themselves have yet to be confirmed. Snoop will be available at the start of the season, while Nicki Minaj and 21 Savage will come at a later date.
Activision also confirmed plans for Season 5 of the game, which will launch next week. Call of Duty Season 5 will bring back classic Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare maps in multiplayer, as well as a host of modes.
Over on Warzone, players can experience a new quest, which is likely to lead to the reveal of the next mainline Call of Duty game, Modern Warfare 3.
The game’s logo, protagonist Captain Price, and what some fans are suggesting looks like series villain Vladimir Makarov appeared on promotional cans of Monster Energy over the weekend, a leak that was later acknowledged by Activision.
Activision seemingly confirmed this last week when it said that Modern Warfare 2 operators, weapons and bundles will carry forward into this year’s series entry, which has yet to be officially revealed.
Maps and modes from Modern Warfare 2 will also be carried over to the new title, it has been claimed.
