Call of Duty: Warzone’s New Pacific Map Revealed In Vanguard Trailer


Editor’s Note: A lawsuit has been filed against Call of Duty publisher Activision Blizzard by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, which alleges the company has engaged in abuse, discrimination, and retaliation against its female employees. Activision Blizzard has denied the allegations. The full details of the Activision Blizzard lawsuit (content warning: rape, suicide, abuse, harassment) are being updated as new information becomes available.

A proper Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer trailer was debuted during a Tuesday stream, and it also revealed the brand-new Call of Duty: Warzone map Pacific. Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s multiplayer reveal trailer comes as part of a larger multiplayer reveal event. Although a small taste of the game’s multiplayer was given in August’s Call of Duty: Vanguard alpha, it was a very small-scale mode that largely doesn’t represent the core multiplayer experience beyond the game’s basic mechanics.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Call of Duty: Vanguard returns to World War II, something that some fans and critics aren’t entirely sold on quite yet. The series largely abandoned the setting following Call of Duty: World at War in 2008, but it did return in 2017 with Call of Duty: WWII. That Slegdehammer Games-developed entry received a relatively warm reception, but many players were happy to see a return to Modern Warfare when Infinity Ward revived the subseries in 2019. Now, Call of Duty is pivoting back to the WW2 and realizing the setting on a grand scale in Warzone.

During Call of Duty: Vanguard‘s multiplayer reveal event, a first look was given at Warzone‘s new Pacific map. Only a few quick glances at the map were given early on, but Raven Software dove deeper into the specifics later on in the stream. The new map will take place on an island in the Pacific and feature jungles, caves, and some cities. The new Call of Duty: Warzone map is the second all-new map to be added to the battle royale following the rather small Rebirth Island. Raven plans to support the new map with new playlists, updates, and its long overdue Call of Duty anti-cheat system.

Call of Duty: Warzone is still expected to maintain its hybrid nature where it doesn’t fully belong to one specific game. Although the new map will tie-in directly with Vanguard, players will still be able to use weapons and gear from the other two Call of Duty titles that have integrated with the battle royale title. Raven Software hasn’t stated whether or not Verdansk will still remain in the game, as it wiped out the original version of the map earlier this year.

Infamous YouTube streamer Dr Disrespected recently noted he would like a new developer to design Warzone‘s next map, as he was so far unimpressed with Raven Software’s work on Verdansk and Rebirth Island. The developer hasn’t made many significant changes to the game since it launched in early 2020, especially when compared to other free-to-play battle royale titles. That said, it looks like the developer has a sizable new map and Call of Duty: Vanguard integration to offer soon, but it’ll be for players to decide if it’s worthwhile when it finally releases.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
