Warzone 2.0 relies, among other things, on a completely new map.

It had been known for a long time that Warzone, the Battle Royale variant of Call of Duty, would have a successor. It was still unclear when exactly this successor will officially start, even if there was a fairly clear leak in August that pointed to November.

And this November date has now been officially confirmed at the Call of Duty: Next event. Warzone 2.0 is Free2Play and launches on November 16, 2022almost two weeks after the launch of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

To ensure greater technical consistency, both Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2 run on the same engine, and both also use the Ricochet anti-cheat program, which was also used in Call of Duty Vanguard, among others. Improvements such as the revised vehicle physics or destruction are also available in Warzone 2.0.

We have collected everything you need to know about MW2 multiplayer in a separate article:

 

Off to Al Mazrah with more circles

The Battle Royale principle remains unsurprisingly untouched in the new part, but the location or the map is completely new. Because Warzone 2.0 literally sends us into the desert, more precisely to Al Mazrah, a fictional region in western Asia. Points of interest include an airport, smaller villages, an oil refinery and much more.

CoD veterans should recognize one or the other place, the airport, for example, is strikingly reminiscent of Modern Warfare 2 (2009). Infinity Ward has been working on the Al Mazrah map since 2020, which is the largest in CoD Battle Royale history to date.

In addition, other innovations for Warzone 2.0 were announced at CoD: Next. Among other things, there will be a new mechanism that distributes several smaller circles on the map before they converge again, which of course has a major impact on the final phases of matches.

There will also be an AI faction that occupies so-called strongholds. If you manage to defeat the AI ​​henchmen, u give and the gulag also gets a makeover. Now it’s down to business in 2v2 duels in prison, which gives you a second chance after your own death. So you have to defeat the opposing team together to be put back on the map.

DMZ is the main new mode

Alongside the classic Battle Royale mode, Infinity Ward is also introducing a new mode called DMZ. This is about completing certain tasks on the entire map of Al Mazrah, collecting loot and then disappearing again with your own fire team.

The point in time is up to the players, but the whole thing is of course made interesting by the opposing teams and AI characters who also populate the map. DMZ should be available right from the launch on November 16th.

Warzone is also coming to mobile

In addition to the “big” Warzone 2.0, there was also a first preview of the mobile version of Warzone at CoD: Next. Among other things, it brings an implementation of the Verdansk map and should otherwise offer a similar feel to the original, for example in Gunplay or Killstreaks.

The fact that the optics cannot keep up with the large variants in terms of level of detail was already clearly visible in the first gameplay scenes, but up to 120 players* should be able to take part in the matches.
