After launching a little over a year ago, Call of Duty: Warzone is now the most popular free-to-play title, with 100 million people playing Battle Royale shooter. Following the nuclear missile that destroyed the game map, In-Game City, Verdunask, has returned with a new map set in 1984, as shown in the trailer for the announcement above.
This mirrors a similar move by its rival Fortnite, which destroyed its original map and replaced it with a new one in 2019. While the shape and layout remain the same as its predecessor, players will notice changes in most locations that fit the new era of the game in the 1980s.
The name of the new map, Verdansk ’84, has some changes to make it a new location and not a direct resin, while the games are becoming even more integrated with Call Call Duty: Black Ops Cold War, which is set in the same decade. Both games share content with each other, meaning weapons, cosmetics, and other game-like slaughter can be shared on both titles.
The first entry into Verdansk ’84 was the official launch of the third season of the Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Warzone, and now it is available with plenty of new weapons added and a few old unfinished ones.
Available to play for free right now, here’s everything you need to know about the massive updates to Warzone, including 20 of the biggest changes both big and small across Verdansk.
