'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Shows Off Brand-New WWII Pacific Map

We all know that Call Of Duty: Warzone is getting a new map to set the scene for the upcoming Call Of Duty: Vanguard, and last night, we got a glimpse of the battleground.

Launching in November, Call Of Duty: Vanguard is transporting players to the Second World War and introducing them to a Special Forces unit tasked with stamping out the remnants of fascism in Europe. "Project Phoenix" threatens the fragile stability of the Allies as it intends to replace Adolf Hitler with Heinrich Freisinger, who is inspired by the historical Schutzstaffel soldier Heinrich Müller.

It is the role of Sergeant Arthur Kingsley, Lieutenant Polina Petrova, Lieutenant Wade Jackson and Private Lucas Riggs to prevent the resurgence of Nazism and protect the peace through their missions across the continent. Like Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the game will debut its setting in Warzone with a new map, and this one will be located in the Pacific.

As you can see, it's a far cry from Verdansk with tropical jungle, steep relief, low clouds and a handful of small towns. This should see the fighting occur out of the urban areas and into the natural environment, sparking new strategies for the community. Moreover, that aforementioned low cloud could do away with the copious amount of lens flare that causes enemies to be difficult to see in Verdansk.

Creative director Amos Hodge said that this Pacific location will "really [open] the doors to how we can craft the narratives and events." Though it's not clear what exactly that means, we might expect more frequent changes to the map to refresh the content on offer. That'll be music to the ears of players who find that things get stale quite quickly in the live events for the battle royale.

At the moment, Activision is grappling with a lawsuit that asserts the offices of the publisher allowed toxic perspectives and abuse to flourish. While it claims that the stories in the suit are "distorted," an open letter has been signed by over 2,000 employees requesting change and compensation.
