New map and many changes, season 2 of Warzone 2 unveiled

In an attempt to stop the chronic bleeding of players from Warzone 2.0, Activision and Infinity Ward are presenting a new map for season 2 of their Battle Royale.

[Mis à jour le 2 février 2023 à 14h47] After reaching no less than 25 million players at the time of its launch, Warzone 2.0 has never stopped losing fans. Whether it’s the number of viewers on Twitch or simply players, the Battle Royale has failed to repeat the feat of its predecessor and suffers from balancing issues that deeply affect its gameplay. This is why Infinity Ward is counting on a rich season 2 to raise its game, and presents us little by little with all the new features it will contain. Today, a new Resurgence map is entering the Battle Royale: Ashika Island.

Ashika Island will therefore be the new map of Warzone 2.0, integrating the game at the same time as Season 2 of Warzone 2. This new map, which can be noted for its traditional Japanese style, will be the key point of the Resurgence mode which is making its back to Battle Royale. As a reminder, the Resurgence mode is a slightly more casual mode than the classic Battle Royale since it incorporates resurrection mechanics during the game. This revelation was also an opportunity for the studio teams to present the extent of the technical changes that are planned for the gameplay of the game.

When is Warzone 2 season 2 coming out?

Warzone 2 season 2 will officially start on Wednesday, February 15, 2023. Season 2, originally scheduled for February 1, has been pushed back for various reasons in Activision’s words: “Warzone Season 2 will launch on February 15. Our studio teams are currently focusing on in-game quality of life improvements and various other positive changes for our players. Season 2 includes new content, with the return of Resurgence and a new scaled-down map for Warzone 2. Ranked matches are also back along with new multiplayer maps, new game modes, new weapons and more.”

What will be new in Warzone 2 Season 2?

As you will have understood, Activision has fully understood the latent dissatisfaction of players and content creators linked to Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2, and intends to offer a rich range of new content with the arrival of the next season. In-game, this translates into various additions and changes, including the parcel and Gulag systems heavily criticized by players.

The Gulag will find its original system of 1 player against 1 player, in a map adapted to this kind of fights then later in the season in a brand new Gulag recreated for the occasion. Another aspect of the game strongly criticized by players will be changed in this new season, namely the functioning of backpacks. The medium and large backpacks that used to store self-revives and killstreaks in astronomical quantities will simply be removed from the game. What to find normal fights where tactical strikes no longer replace handguns, and where to die means to die;

New weapons, game modes and operators will join the Battle Royale content, including the Resurgence mode which will return to the game alongside a new reduced-size map, Ashika. A Hardcore mode should also make its appearance during season 2 in Modern Warfare 2, offering a more engaging experience for multiplayer players (less health points, less information on the HUD) and it could be that this addition makes its transition to Warzone 2 as a new game mode.
