The OG Warzone is 'on life support', and it's not looking good

The OG Warzone is 'on life support', and it's not looking good

Warzone is officially back online, but it's in a terrible state and only has one playable map.

Modern Warfare II may be a colossal success, but Warzone 2.0 is splitting opinion. On the whole, players do seem to be enjoying Activision’s latest battle royale - particularly the proximity chat - but Warzone 2.0 also has its fair share of faults. The new Escape From Tarkov inspired DMZ mode isn’t exactly what fans were hoping for and some are even paying to avoid it.

Dr Disrespect has been pretty vocal about his dislike of Warzone 2.0. In fact, the controversial streamer was banned from the game just days after it launched. Originally, he claimed that developers were trying to “make an example” out of him, later revealing that it’s all because he said ‘p*ssy’ on proximity chat. That aside, nostalgia is probably getting in the way for a lot of players. They miss the original Warzone which has been left in a sorry state.

Speaking of MWII, the game’s take on the iconic ‘All Ghillied Up’ mission is incredible. Take a look below.

As we reported earlier this week, Warzone is officially back online but it’s not the game we fondly remember. We expected a stripped-back version but as Eurogamer have quite aptly said, Warzone is on life support. It’s got a brand new title, Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera. Why, I hear ye ask? Well, it’s because Caldera is the only map you can actually play.

Don’t go looking for Rebirth Island or Fortune’s Keep. You won’t find them. You can still play in either Solo or Quads, which is something I suppose. The bar is very low at this point. It’s also worth pointing out that Activision hasn’t really drawn attention to the re-release of Warzone. It’s almost like they don’t want anyone to notice. Perhaps a low player count gives them the ammunition to shut the service down for good.

Despite the fact that Warzone is rather desolate these days, it still has a hefty file size. BNET users will have to download an 19GB update file in order to get their hands on the game. I’m not sure I’d waste your efforts. There’s only one game with a future and that’s Warzone 2.0, so we’d better get used to it.
