After an exhaustive unveiling of Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer, last minutes were reserved for Warzone, which is getting a new map. Interestingly, the opening frame of the map display is irresistibly reminiscent of the start of the trailer that revealed Sledgehammer’s Call of Duty: WWII from 2017, only the weather in Warzone will be sunny.
Warzone is moving to the Pacific, sunlit, filled with jungle, rocky hills, and a predominantly rural environment from the currently shown scenes. There is also a bus, a bridge, and even a part reminiscent of Quarry from Verdansk. A new map of similar dimensions as the current one, and has been under construction for almost two years.
"Our goal was to escape from war-torn Verdansk and bring players a new and lively atmosphere that opens the door to new ideas to create a story and events in Warzone," said Amos Hodge of Ravenna.
Along with the Pacific package, there is of course the promised anti-cheat system, which, as Hodge says, is in the final stages of testing and will be ready along with the arrival of the map. Since Call of Duty: Vanguard will use the same engine as Modern Warfare, Warzone’s integration with Vanguard this time around should be more natural and painless than the Cold War one.
We believe that for Activision, this anti-cheat and the new map is the last straw to help Warzone regain its reputation, which went downhill with the integration of the Cold War and soon crashed due to the onslaught of fraudsters.
