Call of Duty: Warzone fans have received confirmation that a sequel will be released alongside Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 later this year. However, all the details about the new Call of Duty: Warzone remain unofficial, and fans have to totally trust the leaks.
Fortunately, there have been some incredibly interesting leaks about Call of Duty: Warzone 2. The game will reportedly feature a Blackout-like map, which could be made up of iconic locations from the original Modern Warfare trilogy. The armor system will also resemble that of Blackout, and leaks also suggest that there will be an interrogation feature. Pro Perks have also been rumored, and with this information mentioned by Tom Henderson, fans have reason to believe it may be true.
While all rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, Henderson has been proven right on multiple occasions, correctly predicting Call of Duty and Battlefield features and leaking games like Quantic Dream’s Star Wars: Eclipse. Henderson’s latest previews come courtesy of an image posted to his Twitter account, featuring a glimpse of the upcoming map of Call of Duty: Warzone 2. Henderson has also given a teaser about a new mechanic of I swim.
According to Henderson’s drawing, the upper right part of the map will be composed of a modern city. This should be especially exciting for those who loved Verdansk and want it back. To the left of this town, you will supposedly see a quarry, and the center of the map will be made up of caves. While there are bound to be plenty of points of interest within these zones, this loose outline suggests a diverse play space with a healthy dose of verticality.
Although the original Call of Duty: Warzone lacked game mechanics I swimthe games of Call of Duty Treyarch have included swimming in online play since Black Ops 3, so it wouldn’t be surprising to see it introduced in Warzone. If Henderson’s sketch of the map is correct, swimming will also be a much-needed feature, as there is apparently “a lot of sea” in the southern part of the map.
If the fabric of this aquatic area is accessible and has some landmarks along it, it could add a new dynamic to the games, with players swimming from one place to another and having final battles inside some bodies of water. Marine vehicles, such as ships, are also a possibility.
