News - Cod Warzone 2. 0 New Gulag & Map Explained. Gamespot News
call of duty Warzone fans, including myself, have been hungry for more information about the game's sequel, Warzone 2.0. Fortunately, we got a big plate of food at today's Call of Duty next event, including things like the release date.
The new map and how it differs from the original warzone Let's start with the new location, "Call of Duty." The Warzone 2.0 map is called Al-Mazra, and it takes place in the desert of a fictional region of western Asia.
Some points of interest include Quarry Airport and Almazra City, just to name a few, and there seem to be nuggets of nostalgia just sprinkled all over the map. This map also features a river that runs through the middle, offering seasoned warzone players a new way to traverse the map. And new ways to move around the map will surely come in handy when the circle starts to close, or should I say when the circles start to From start to finish.
Warzone 2.0 will have a brand new circle mechanic with multiple circles appearing and changing the endgame scenarios. When they eventually combine into one again, and when you happen to fall victim to the gas or an enemy player, you'll be greeted with the game's revamped. This is Gulag 2.0, where players must battle it out 2v2, instead of the normal 1v1 arena.
This second chance gulag will include the need to loot for weapons, deal with something called the jailer, and more. Almazra will also feature areas that are controlled by an AI faction. These sections are called strongholds. The developer says this addition of AI is meant to add higher stakes and more realistic combat scenarios to the warzone experience, and this is just part of Infinity Ward's new use of advanced AI in modern warfare 2 and warzone 2.0, which the developer previously discussed as having the goal of making lifelike enemies and friendlys who will check corners, actively protect their lives, and dramatically react to player choices.
Another hard to keep secret was the previously mentioned, which was officially announced to be included in Warzone 2.0 at launch. Dmz is described as an all-new sandbox experience.
But they didn't go in depth as I wish they would have had another The new feature I wish they went more in depth on during the multiplayer section was raids.
Raids are a first for the Call of Duty series and are described as a whole new experience for the franchise. They take the form of a three-player co-op engagement that Activision says will require teamwork and strategic puzzle solving in between intense firefights. The company also confirmed that raids are coming after the launch but didn't say whether or if there might be an extra fee associated with playing them.
Finally, players can expect Warzone 2 to be combating cheaters on day one. Call of Duty's Ricochet anti-cheat server protection and kernel level driver will be active globally for the launch of both Warzone 2.0 and Modern Warfare 2. Infinity Ward also announced that Ricochet has been upgraded and improved with new features to better keep hackers at bay.
I'm no good at Warzone, but I'm very excited to try out 2.0 when it drops in November, and I'm even more excited to play the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 beta when it drops tomorrow on Playstation. I'm really waiting for the PC one, but I'm going to jump into the Playstation one until the PC one rolls around, and we're gonna be live streaming the Playstation one tomorrow at 1 : 30 pm eastern, 10 a.
m, Whoops i'm at 10 30 a, M pacific time 10 30 pacific time so jump in if you want to check out the gameplay, and maybe experience a little FOMO if you only have a PC or Xbox.
