Everything You Need To Know About Warzone 2.0 ...

Warzone 2.0 isn't far away. In fact, we already have a release date for it. So let's take a look at everything we know so far about it.

Warzone 2.0 will be the follow-up to Battle Royale's hit Warzone and will be released sooner than expected. We have included all of the necessary information about Warzone 2, including gameplay, maps, weapons, and more.

After Infinity Ward started developing Modern Warfare II (2022), the game has now been handed over to Raven Software, who has total creative control. It is a hugely successful game that makes no mention, even two years after its release, and is now the base-level Call of Duty game, with other mainline releases converting into glorified level grinding for Warzone.

Warzone 2.0: New Features

Apart from a new map, Warzone 2 will also include some new gameplay capabilities. So far we know about the following new features:

Some new gameplay mechanics from MWII will also be included in Warzone 2, since it is now much more closely connected to Modern Warfare II. Vehicles will also be able to be driven underwater in and around the water, which will give us more gameplay depth. Additionally, the popular Dolphin Dive will be reinstated.

The Gulag is obviously back, but in Warzone 2, it will be played 2v2, and there will be the possibility to loot weapons and interact with an NPC called "The Jailer." Here we have already summarized everything about the 2v2 Gulag.

It has been confirmed that the Warzone 2.0 circle will be split into three smaller separate circles during the game's running, which will only reunite at the end of the match and lead to a final confrontation between the remaining teams. This should provide more excitement and, above all, more possibilities at the end of a match.

For the first time, Warzone 2.0 will include many vehicles that can be lean out of windows to shoot, and can also climb onto the roof of the vehicle while driving to shoot enemies from there. Most cars also have a tank that emptys while driving, and must be refueled at locations distributed on the map.

Let's talk about Warzone 2.0's biggest change: No loadouts or perks. The Warzone 2.0 loadout drops are not available in Warzone 2.0. We can still make our own weapons in Gunsmith, but there will be no full loads with secondary weapon, bonuses, or grenades. At buy stations in Warzone two, we can buy single custom weapons, and everything else must be looted on the map.

There is also an AI faction that patrols certain locations or protects strongholds on the Al Mazrah map. You have the choice if you want to pursue them or not. If you capture a stronghold, you'll earn some decent loot and get a free item to purchase one of your custom weapons from a buying station.

  • Maybe we'll even get 5-player-squads

The Warzone 2 weapon list is still unknown, but since the game will be closely linked to Modern Warfare II, it will start with all MWII weapons. As always, new weapons will be added little by little.

Perks are becoming more popular as they are not available at the launch in Warzone 2.0. Yes, Warzone 2.0 will be released without Perks. Maybe they will be included with later versions. In terms of equipment, i.e. field upgrades and grenades, Warzone 2.0 sticks to the selection from Modern Warfare 2.

  • New Gadgets Revealed For MW2: EMPs, Tactical Cameras & Drill Charges

Many players should be pleased to learn that we will have a firing range. In the current Warzone, there is no way to test out weapons and their attachments outside of a match. This would be a great and likely very popular change.

Warzone 2.0: Release Date

Modern Warfare 2 will be released on November 16th, two weeks after Warzone 2.0. This is much earlier than we anticipated.

Warzone 2.0: Expected Platforms

Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is expected to be available on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and PC, but also for Xbox One and PS4. As we discussed earlier in the series on Call of Duty's possible Xbox-exclusivity, Warzone 2 will not be exclusive to Xbox. Switch users should not be too surprised either, as CoD has never been released on a Nintendo console before.

Warzone 2.0: Maps

A large Battle Royale map will be available for Warzone 2 once again, as well as a smaller one for more action. We have already seen the large map, but there is no official information on the smaller map yet.

The massive new Warzone 2.0 map will be set in a fictional place called "Al Mazrah." The map is not set in South America, as originally assumed, but in West Asia, and here we already have a complete overview of the new map:

It will be a peninsula again, which lends itself to a Battle Royale. It also appears to be the largest Battle Royale map we've ever seen in Warzone. Here we explain the Warzone 2.0 map in more detail:

There will probably be another smaller map similar to Rebirth Island or Fortune's Keep, because not all players like huge maps. However, this second map will only be released after the release of Warzone 2.

A totally new Tarkov-like mode called DMZ will be released with the release of Warzone 2. The new mode is expected to perform like Battlefield 2042's Escape from Tarkov.

Although it was initially thought that DMZ might be the third mode of Modern Warfare 2, and would require you to purchase the whole game for it, it is now known that DMZ will be included in Warzone 2 for free.

The objective in DMZ is to find loot or complete contracts before you exfiltrate. According to the developers, DMZ is meant to serve as a sort of sandbox mode in which every player may do whatever he wants. You land on the large Al Mazrah map, which is populated by AI soldiers, and can choose whether or not you want to pursue other players, combat AI soldiers, or completely avoid shootouts.

All of this information about Warzone 2 is currently available. Of course, we'll keep this article up to date whenever there is new information.
