When the Warzone 2 Season 2 release date comes in the multiplayer game in a few weeks, the new Ashika Island location that's coming to Call of Duty Warzone 2 as its first Resurgence location will also become part of DMZ. The map will be a bit different as a DMZ exclusion zone, and will include heavy fog, dangerous new locations, and more.
Ashika Island is a new map discovered in the Pacific Ocean that, according to Call of Duty legends, was originally intended as a tourist attraction when construction was halted in the 1990s for unknown reasons. Now it's used as a hideout for international weapons smugglers, and there's even a hidden submarine facility beneath the island.
When players enter Ashika Island in the DMZ, they'll discover it engulfed in mist. They'll have to keep an eye on other players, but also watch out for the members of Shadow Company, which has established a shop on Ashika.
Activision claims there is a new weapons case on the island, as well as a new boss called the Bombmaker, new locked and dangerous areas, and much more.
When season 2 starts, DMZ's existing locations, including the huge Al Mazrah Warzone 2 map, and the Building 21 exclusion zone, will also be affected.
Season 2 will also include a semi-wipe for DMZ progress, although players will retain some unlocks from Season 1 – it's not as extensive as server wipes in Escape from Tarkov. All contraband weapons and keys you've collected will be lost, and all Warzone 2 faction mission progress will be reset.
Raven Software claims that DMZ season 1 increased difficulty too quickly, and that unlocking new insured weapon slots will be easier in season 2.
When you infiltrate Ashika, you'll want the best Warzone 2 SMG at your disposal. You may also want to examine the best Warzone 2 Chimera loadout if you'd like to fiddle in gunsmith.
