Looks like some changes are on the horizon for Call of Duty: Warzone. Activision has released a cryptic transmission alerting players to a “containment protocol alert” for the Verdansk. There is also a short video indicating the prison will be overrun with zombies.
The statement heeds players to be on high alert for a “contagion warning” for the southeastern part of the Verdansk. To be more specific, the message points towards a breakout of some sort at the Vodianoy ship, alongside locations east of it, including Zordoya Prison Complex and the surrounding areas. Additionally, there is a cheeky little video on the game’s Twitter account, which you can view below.
Activision said players head should be a swivel for enemies who are described as “withered, exhibiting a cadaverous appearance, and lacking in contrastive cognizant function.” Yeah, a zombie. “Should you encounter these anomalous hostiles, no quarter should be given. Subsequently, a fighting withdrawal, immediate exfil and subsequent fumigation is recommended.”
There is growing suspision that zombies will completely overrun the entirety of Verdansk, causing the detonation of a nuclear warhead to stop them. Speculation is that when the map returns, it will be Black Ops themed.
You can read the full statement below:
For Immediate Release: Contagion Warning Issued for Southeastern Verdansk
by Armistice Central Command on March 11, 2021
Attention all Verdansk Operatives.
The Emergency Broadcast System has issued a minor contagion warning for the southeastern zone of Verdansk encompassing the miasma epicenter (“ghost ship” Vodianoy) as well as territories immediately east, including the Zordaya Prison Complex and surrounding areas. In addition, terrain reconnaissance scouts in conjunction with a multi-lateral Armistice air support squadron, have determined the existence of anomalies within this region of Kastovia. The following guidance has been approved for all military Operators working within the greater Tavorsk area:
You are recommended to exercise extreme caution: Reconnoitering within these newly confirmed anomalous zones may result in additional conflict, as speculative reports indicate secondary forces of unknown origin now residing both within the Prison Complex as well as the fully compromised Shipwreck points of interest.
Hostile forces are described as withered, exhibiting a cadaverous appearance, and lacking in contrastive cognizant function. Should you encounter these anomalous hostiles, no quarter should be given. Subsequently, a fighting withdrawal, immediate exfil and subsequent fumigation is recommended.
Alert: Containment Protocol Level has not been raised, as these threats appear to be mainly contained to the southern zone of Sector 5, and Operators in surrounding regions should proceed as normal. Computer models expect the anomalous activities to cease shortly, and a conflagration is not expected.
Stay frosty and execute the mission.
