The new Warzone map is going to the Pacific
We now have some official information on the new Warzone map! What a treat. Thanks to an update by Raven Software's Associate Creative Director Amos Hodge, we now know a bit more about the upcoming new addition to Warzone. We also know we're finally leaving Verdansk.
You can check out the Vanguard reveal below, handily timestamped for the Call of Duty Warzone new map reveal.
Hodge claimed the team wanted to "feel and character" of Vanguard extends all the way into Call of Duty: Warzone. We're heading all the way to the Pacific, and from the pre-alpha footage of the map seen in the video, it looks really nice.
The various murky shades of Verdansk are long gone, with lovely waterfalls, palm trees, and blue skies visible. The Warzone update will share an engine with Vanguard too, meaning development will be simultaneous and hopefully both games will be well-supported with regular updates.
Its working title is 'Warzone Pacific' at the moment, but we'll keep you updated with any further developments. We also know the new map will become available shortly after Vanguard's release.
Warzone Verdansk map: Where's the best loot?
The best Warzone loot can be found in supply boxes scattered across the map. The valuable items found in these chests are random, containing weapons (often blueprints with pre-fitted attachments), field upgrades, cash, and even the occasional killstreak. However, it's always worth keeping an eye out for the rarer, orange boxes, which hold better gear such as gas masks and armor satchels that let you hold more armor plates.
