Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Officially Launched
It’s a busy week for Call Of Duty fans as Call Of Duty: Warzone 2.0 has launched officially, bringing with it new maps, operators and weapons. It is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
The original Warzone’s servers are now offline, at least briefly. It will be rebranded as Call Of Duty: Warzone Caldera. As a thank you to the community, players of the original Warzone will be “gifted a few items” to use in the sequel.
Just like the predecessor, Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0 is a battle royale shooter where players compete in a continuously shrinking map until the last one standing. In some games, multiple circles will spawn and collapse, before finally converging into one safe zone. This allows for more close-quarter combats to be fought in multiple small circles, thereby increasing the intensity of each encounter.
Upon defeat, players will have to fight each other in a small arena called the ‘Gulag’ for a chance to be respawned into the map. In 2.0, players will battle each other in a 2v2 format, which may sometimes include the ‘Jailer’, an AI combatant whereby players can hunt down to obtain a key to escape.
Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 loadout changes
Unlike the original game, Warzone 2.0 has tweaked how players can buy Loadouts. Instead of Loadouts, Buy Stations now contain only Custom Primary Weapons from each player’s Loadouts. Other Loadout items are only earned by risking the trip to a Loadout Drop or by clearing out a Stronghold.
Call Of Duty Warzone 2.0 shares progression with Modern Warfare II, as well as cross-platform progression and social features with Warzone Mobile, an upcoming Warzone title for mobile.
