Activision have officially announced a brand new map for their free-to-play battle-royale Call of Duty Warzone. As the rumours revealed a couple of months ago, the map is set in the Pacific.
Back in June, we got a report which revealed that Call of Duty Warzone will be getting a brand new map with the release of WW2-themed Call of Duty Vanguard. The report stated that the map would be set in the Pacific.
Fast forward to today and we have an official confirmation that this Pacific map is indeed coming to Call of Duty Warzone. During the last night's Call of Duty Vanguard stream, Raven Software, the developer on Warzone, confirmed that the new map based within the Pacific will launch later this year following the release of Call of Duty Vanguard.
The Pacific map will feature an entirely new island built from the ground up, complete with all new points of interest.
The map is roughly the size of Verdansk and was built based on feedback from the community over nearly two years ago. Visually, it looks more vibrant than the war-torn Verdansk, which will be quite the change for players who spent a lot of time with washed out and grim original Warzone map.
Raven also revealed that the map 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 cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-gen support.
