Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 Launch Date, Gameplay, Modifications, New Map, and More

The Warzone 2 release date has been announced on November 16, 2022. Infinity Ward revealed the Warzone 2.0 release date as part of Call of Duty Next, with the studio’s new and pricey version of the ever-popular battle royale genre due to premiere about two and half years after the first Warzone launched on March 10, 2020.

Platforms for Call of Duty Warzone 2.0

Despite hardcore fans’ concerns, the next generation of Warzone will not abandon earlier systems – Infinity Ward has correctly pointed out that abandoning the PS4 and Xbox One would mean abandoning the largest segment of gamers.

That implies Call of Duty Warzone 2.0 will be available on the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition, we’re looking for at least full native versions of the game on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S for increased performance and quality.

Will Warzone 2.0 be available for free?

The new edition of Warzone will keep the free-to-play model that made the previous game famous.

That means you’ll be able to play Warzone 2.0 for free, and you won’t have to pay for online subscriptions to unlock its features on PlayStation or Xbox.

Henderson has also stated that a second map for Warzone 2 is now in the works. The above will function as the primary BR map, similar to the original game.

At the same time, a second edition expected later will act as a bite-sized BR offering similar to Rebirth Island. According to Henderson, this smaller map is presently in early development, so we may not see it until late 2023.

The Warzone 2.0 map is brand new. We’ll bid goodbye to Verdansk, Caldera, Rebirth Island, and Fortune’s Keep in favor of Al Mazrah, a stunningly huge new playspace developed expressly to use Warzone 2’s new mechanics and systems.

Al Mazrah is a large desert map featuring a wide range of geographies, including industrial zones, various-sized towns (including one that is half-submerged), and a vast city. The map has 18 sites of interest, and a river system flows throughout it.

Al Mazrah in Warzone 2 is the “largest battle royale map that Infinity Ward has ever built,” It appears like it’ll contain some improved reimaginings of beloved locales from Verdansk and Verdansk ’84, such as Quarry, Airport, and the Observatory.

What occurred to the original Warzone?

While Warzone 2.0 is starting again with entirely new features, content, and advancement, the original Warzone title will remain in some way as a “distinct experience.”

No current equipment or cosmetics, such as Operators, Blueprints, or weapon skins, will be carried over to Warzone 2.

However, your current progress and unlocks from the previous two years will remain in the original game. Though it’s uncertain how much support it’ll receive after Warzone 2 takes center stage.

Will Caldera and Rebirth be the only two maps that can be played? Will additional content and balance improvements be released in 2023 and beyond? These are all questions that Activision will undoubtedly address in the coming weeks.
