COD Warzone to get an extremely new map. COD (Call of Duty) Warzone Season 5 brought a few little map changes to the battle royale in the form of satellite stations, but it didn’t bring the new region we’re hoping for. We did, however, get some news about the long-awaited Warzone map as part of the Call of Duty: Vanguard reveals.
For the first time since Call of Duty WW2, we’re heading back to the second world war to hunt down Hitler’s successor. But what does this mean for Warzone? Well, the Vanguard reveal also provided some details about the new Warzone map, which will reportedly arrive alongside the game, giving us another region to explore and fight in.
COD Warzone to get an extremely new map
How exactly can you use the COD to continue the warzone? “Warzone will continue to support weapons and content earned with a Battle Pass or purchased via Store Bundle from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War,” Activision said.
“This is all built on the same tech and engine as Call of Duty: Vanguard for seamless weapon integration and play balance, and it all arrives with fully optimized crossplay, cross-progression, and cross-gen support.”
The Pacific map is set to be slightly larger than Verdansk, Warzone’s current map, and will include new vehicles to help players traverse the landscape more efficiently. The Warzone Pacific map is set to launch shortly after Call of Duty: Vanguard’s release, which is scheduled to be on November 5.
New game modes
We also know we’ll be getting two limited-time game modes – Clash and Iron Trials ’84. The first is a 50v50 deathmatch that we’ve played before in Warzone.
The second, Iron Trials, sounds more interesting, with a raised health pool and faster regeneration set to make the whole game feel very different.
There won’t be any free loadout drops, the Gulag is being stripped back to simple weapons only, and we can’t wait to try it out. Winners in this mode will earn a special calling card.
The update brings new operators to try out, too – together with Hudson from the Black Ops Cold War campaign, the big news is that Judge Dredd is coming to Warzone.
The skins for Beck come in color and black-and-white versions, and the bundle will hit the store with Dredd’s trademark futuristic weapons in tow. Get ready to see the Law running all around Verdansk if previous tie-in skins are anything to go by.
When did Warzone Season 5 start?
Going back in time a little, it’s not that long since this season started. First up, the key timing – Season 5 began on 12 August 2021, and the season looks set to last for about two months, with the Battle Pass kicking off with a 57-day countdown active.
What’s new in Season 5?
Season 5 hasn’t brought the most titanic set of changes that Warzone’s seen, it’s fair to say. Get more details form here.
