As part of the Call of Duty: Vanguard multiplayer reveal event today, Amos Hodge from Raven Software unveiled the first glance at Call of Duty: Warzone’s new map.
It’s called Warzone Pacific (but this is not necessarily the real name), and, obviously, the map is taking players to the Pacific as well as totally revamping the Warzone experience. Unlike the small change that happened when Verdansk ’84 released, Warzone Pacific will be a completely new map. New points of interest, locations, and places to explore. The video shows Verdansk’s dark and destroyed environment is being replaced with brighter, lusher, and more colorful landscapes. You can check out the footage below, but remember this is in pre-alpha stage.
Warzon Pacific has cross-play between consoles and platforms, as well as cross-generation play, so you can match up with anyone, not matter what platform their on.
Hodge also confirmed that Warzone Pacific uses the same engine as Vanguard for “seamless weapon integration and play balance.” This is a marked difference from Black Ops Cold War’s integration into Warzone, which caused some issues.
The new anti-cheat system was also mentioned, with Hodge saying the studio is putting it through final testing. Hodge also stated it should be ready when Warzone Pacific launches later this year.
