What Is Warzone Caldera?
Warzone Caldera is a rebrand of the original Call of Duty Warzone Battle Royale. Players will still be able to enjoy the original BR title, with all of their earned items and unlocks.
However, popular smaller maps Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep not be present in Warzone any longer, with only Caldera available to play.
Warzone Caldera will not be receiving any new weapons from MW2, but will remain similar to how it was at the end of Vanguard Season 5 Reloaded.
Another thing missing from Warzone Caldera will be the in-game store, though COD Points will still be transferrable between all Call of Duty titles.
Any Double XP and Double Weapon XP tokens present in Warzone Caldera will not be transferrable to Warzone 2.0 or vice versa, however.
Is Verdansk Coming Back in Warzone Caldera?
Activision hasn’t confirmed whether or not Verdansk will ever return in the rebranded ‘Warzone Caldera’ but it’s certainly not available at launch. What’s more, the name seems to suggest that only the Pacific map will be making an appearance from now on.
However, those who want their fill of a city battlefield in their Battle Royale arena will be very happy with some of Warzone 2.0’s major POIs!
