'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Finally Unveils Caldera Map, Verdansk's Replacement

'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Finally Unveils Caldera Map, Verdansk's Replacement

Approximately the same size as the original map, there's so much in store for players.

To celebrate the oncoming launch of Call of Duty: Vanguard next week, Warzone is getting a new map that will replace Verdansk in its entirety. 

This is a breath of fresh air for longtime players, as Caldera is on the same scale as Verdansk, yet offers completely optimised cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-gen support in a new arena of warfare. In fact, Warzone will be called Warzone Pacific for the first season of tie-in content between the battle royale and Vanguard. Not hugely sure how much of a difference that will be, because I’m fairly sure everyone’s still going to just call it Warzone

With over 200 points of interest to be found across white sandy beaches, volcanic crags, scattered towns, and dense rainforest, there’s a lot to look forward to. Ahead of its official launch, Warzone players will collect intel on the map thanks to the peppering of references to Caldera in Verdansk in the Secrets of the Pacific challenges. 

Say sayonara to Verdansk in this compilation of exhilarating wins and fails from the battle royale below!

And, Operation: Flashback will commence on November 18th, which is described to be the “last dance” for the iconic map before it disappears. The end of the month will see the Last Hours of Verdansk, and I’m interested to see how the developer does away with Verdansk. It will likely involve a massive explosion, but surely, there’s some opportunity to show the devastation that the players have wrought on the land, transforming it into an inhospitable environment, preventing any life from thriving there. 

No? Never mind then.

Finally, if you’re worried about some unsavoury sorts ruining the fun once more with the arrival of Vanguard, this is what the publisher had to say. “Our upcoming initiative, supported by a team of dedicated professionals focused on fighting unfair play, will already have several backend anti-cheat security features by Vanguard’s launch on November 5,” explained Activision. Of course, it was merely days when we learned that hackers had managed to reverse the RICOCHET system with clever elastic trickery.
