This year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard will appear shortly and a little later the shooter will start its first season. This also brings profound changes to the free-to-play spin-off Call of Duty: Warzone.
In December, the starting shot for the first season in the new Call of Duty: Vanguard will be given – and then a lot will change in the Battle Royale offshoot Warzone. This takes up the setting in the Second World War of the main part and in the course of this also gets the keyword “Pacific” in the subtitle. So from December 2nd you can get started in Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific.
The news came in one detailed blog post by Sledgehammer Games and Raven Software, in which one mainly takes a look at the upcoming multiplayer content from Vanguard. In the end, however, you also come across Warzone.
The Battle Royale offshoot will also play again in the Second World War and, above all, will be given a new card called the Caldera. This is – you guessed it from the name – located somewhere in the Pacific Ocean and is supposed to be of a similar size to Verdansk, the current Warzone map. Further details about the new card are still pending and should be announced towards the end of November.
Warzone Pacific also gets a revised arsenal with corresponding guns to match the temporal setting. In addition, the new anti-cheat system called Ricochet will be implemented, which the creators will also go into in more detail in the blog entry.
Despite the changes, Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific will continue to be free-to-play and support cross-play and cross-progression. Initially, Call of Duty: Vanguard will start as a full version on November 5th.
