Season 2 of Warzone and Black Ops Chilly Conflict started yesterday after what appeared just like the longest season but. Stim glitches and the DMR meta made for a couple of horrible weeks, so it’s good to have considerably of a reset come to Name of Obligation’s large battle royale.
No, it’s not the all-new map that Warzone desperately wants and has wanted for months at this level, however it’s one thing new a minimum of.
The ship that’s crashed into the open space between Port and Verdansk Jail is all that’s new for Season 2, past a few new weapons and Operators. Whereas it’s busy for now in order that gamers can take a look at the zombies you could spawn there, it’ll doubtless quickly change into a abandoned space of the map, simply because it was earlier than the Season 2 replace.
I feel Nick Mercs’ response to the brand new season sums it up fairly nicely.
In comparison with the like of Fortnite, which rips complete sections of its map up each 10 weeks or so, including a little bit boat within the nook of Verdansk isn’t sufficient, particularly when legions of followers have been anticipating a brand new map. Warzone has been out for nearly precisely a 12 months and the map is sort of completely the identical because it was final March.
There’s the practice, which will get looted in the beginning of the sport after which ignored; the open stadium that’s greatest averted, and a few new underground areas. That’s about all that’s been added in 12 months.
It’s time for the brand new map, that’s as clear as day, however now we have what now we have. And fortunately, it looks like the Season 2 replace is likely to be bringing us in the direction of a giant change.
Zombies have arrived in Verdansk, at present restricted to only the ship, however it looks like they’re going to slowly make their manner from the south coast to in all places else.
The Outbreak challenges ask you to do issues like “kill 20 Zombies” or “kill zombies earlier than the tip of the primary zone.” That’s going to be very tough in the event that they’re restricted to the decrease deck of the brand new ship, so it’s inevitable that they change into extra of an infestation throughout Verdansk.
At face worth, that worries me. Zombies can keep its personal factor and Warzone can keep its personal factor: there’s no must cross them over and threat ruining what makes the battle royale so nice at its core.
They’ll change into a distraction at the start, annoying the hell out of your greater than the rest.
That being mentioned, the opening of recent missile silos suggests the tip is nigh for the brand new infestation, and perhaps Verdansk as an entire.
As VGC has reported, it looks like Activision plan to make use of the newly found missiles to degree Verdansk and usher in a brand new period of Warzone.
What I envisage is zombies slowly taking up the map all through Season 2, to the purpose that the likes of Adler want to make use of the brand new missiles to blow every part up, permitting them to depart Verdansk and transfer on to someplace new.
Whether or not that be one thing new based mostly on Trendy Warfare, the Ural Mountains location seen in Outbreak or one thing model new based mostly on Black Ops Chilly Conflict, it’s tough to say, however it’ll be thrilling nonetheless.
After all, this might all be wishful pondering and Verdansk might proceed to be the house of Warzone for seasons to return. In spite of everything, the bunkers and hidden nukes that all of us thought pointed in the direction of a brand new map led to nothing, however certainly that’s not the case once more. At the very least not with so many individuals calling so loudly for a brand new map.
As we strategy the summer time and lockdown restrictions plan to get relaxed (a minimum of the place I’m in Europe), lots of gamers will doubtless spend much less time than ordinary with Warzone. Releasing a brand new map as quickly as doable would inject the sport with a lease of life that might assist it thrive for longer. The general high quality of the sport will all the time see it’s a hit, however extra must be completed to make it the very best it may be.
Hopefully we’ll see a brand new map in 50 days or so, when Season 3 begins. If not, Warzone goes to be left behind by lots of gamers.
