Although Operation Monarch will be the name of the two-week-long event, fans will also find a separate game mode of the same name.

The new limited-time mode will be a 60 player lobby with Quads only, with the Resurgence rule set also active. According to the Call of Duty blog post, a small section of Caldera will be marked for the first safe area, and outside of one massive twist, the rules are simple: be the last team standing.

Aside from simply surviving, players will need to find Monarch Intel. The intel can be found in Supply Boxes, special drops, and fallen enemies. Collection the Monarch Intel will charge a special meter that unlocks items such as Killstreaks and Loadout Drops, along with a unique and powerful Titan Killstreak reward for filling it up completely.

So what about the big twist of the mode? Well, players will need to watch out for Godzilla and King Kong, who will be causing chaos around the island. The giant titans will also occasionally experience ‘Titan Frenzy’, which will see both Kong and Godzilla enraged and recklessly attack players.

The team that deals the most amount of damage to King Kong and Godzilla will receive the new S.C.R.E.A.M killstreak. This special device Operatives unleash the awesome power of Godzilla and Kong in battle, allowing players to use one of two powers from the Titans: a Heat-Ray breath from Godzilla or a ground pound from Kong.
