Activision Makes Big Announcements Regarding Upcoming COD titles
Warzone 2.0 is a significant sequel to the massively successful Call of Duty battle royale shooter Warzone. Al Mazrah is a completely new Warzone 2.0 map that combines desert combat with large urban areas. Al Mazrah will have a 2v2 version of Warzone’s Gulag, which will require players to fight their way out, in addition to dozens of new explorable places and points of interest. A patrolling warden and weaponry strewn across the map are among the new gameplay elements in the new Gulag.
The game also adds a unique twist to the battle royale format by scattering numerous circles across the field that separate groups of players before bringing them all back together for a few final battles.
Similarly to the original game, Warzone 2.0 will include all of the weapons from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s October 26 release, and the two games will feature cross-progression. The game will also include a new mode called DMZ, in which players must infiltrate the battlefield and escape with as much equipment as possible. So, all COD fans should be excited because they will soon be able to enjoy new gameplay and maps.
Modern Warfare 2:
The Loadout 2.0 system, which expands on Infinity Ward’s weapon customization from 2019 Modern Warfare by providing players with more methods to modify their weapon and grouping the arsenal according to their weapon platform, is the most notable new feature in Modern Warfare 2. This feature will also be included in Warzone 2.0, giving players more options for customising their equipment.
Modern Warfare 2 will also make changes to Call of Duty’s multiplayer model, including improved sprinting, swimming, and mantling. Third-person multiplayer playlists, the return of the cooperative Spec Ops mode, and artificial intelligence players on select extra-large maps and modes are among the more significant changes to the game.
