According to the latest Call of Duty blog post, Warzone players can now expect the Pacific coast-set map to release this December. Even more surprising, the massive seaside setting, titled Caldera, will also affect Warzone in name, as Activision has announced it will rename the battle royale soon.
The developer revealed that when this Caldera map releases on December 2, its signature free-to-play title will then be known as Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific. It is said that this World War II-themed island is “roughly the size of Verdansk,” but will feature more than 200 detailed locations to drop into. Amongst them, newly-released images display a massive volcano standing in the middle of the island, along with small glimpses of other major landmarks.
With its debut, Warzone Pacific will sport full integration with Call of Duty: Vanguard — meaning all weapons, cosmetics, and leveling progression collected in the upcoming title will transfer over to the battle royale. Additionally, weapons and cosmetics earned from Black Ops Cold War and Modern Warfare can continue to be used in Warzone Pacific.
Speaking of Vanguard, the previously introduced Ricochet anti-cheat system will make its highly-anticipated debut upon the game’s release on November 5 for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC.
