The highly anticipated battle royale sequel Call of Duty: Warzone 2 finally has a release date.
Warzone 2 was announced during the Call of Duty Next livestream (opens in new tab) is scheduled for release on November 16th. That puts it in players’ hands just a few weeks after Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 launched in October.
It will be released alongside its first multiplayer season. As with the original Warzone, each seasonal update for Warzone 2 will be shared with the other Call of Duty titles, meaning many of the new features arriving in Modern Warfare 2 will also appear in the battle royale.
Warzone 2 will make some big changes to battle royale. For starters, the new map Al Mazrah is introduced – a mix of sprawling desert, industrial areas, cities and lots of water. Expect rocky peaks, underground caves, and claustrophobic corridors.
The map’s landmarks include a fortress, an observatory, an abandoned village, swamplands, an airport, and an empty metropolis. Rivers will connect all the major landmarks, with Warzone 2 borrowing heavily from Call of Duty’s new water features.
The vehicles are also beefed up. New physics and a new handling model make them feel more authentic to drive but also to destroy. You can blow off tires to slow down enemies, climb car roofs to gain a combat advantage, and lean out of windows for extra firepower. But you have to take care of them. Tires need to be repaired on the fly and cars need to be refueled if you want them to keep going.
Those are some big changes, although not as big as the new third-person mode coming to Modern Warfare 2.
