In Warzone: The Destruction of Verdansk Part 2, players head back in time to 1984 in the aftermath of a nuclear explosion.
If you were hoping that The Destruction of Verdansk Part 2 would make more sense than its predecessor, you’ll find yourself sadly mistaken. In Warzone’s grand finale event, players head to Rebirth Island Night in order to ensure that the Nuke does indeed hit Verdansk.
In the mini battle royale mode, players are fighting over control of a special nuclear device. Hold it, and you’ll highlight yourself to every player on the map.
However, the bar will slowly tick up to 100% completion. When the device is fully ready, you and your squad will be able to drop the Nuke on Verdansk personally.
You’ll even be hailed as the ‘Destroyers of Verdansk’ in a special splash screen as the Nuke goes off in the background. And then things get a little weird…
Verdansk ’84 Revealed in The Destruction of Verdansk Part 2
Once you’re done with the main Destruction of Verdansk Part 2 event, players will drop into the brand-new Verdansk ’84 map in Warzone.
Strangely enough though, since the special event only brought 40 players into our lobby, it was a pretty empty map. Wondering why you were sent back in time? Well, it’s all due to a mysterious red door and the return of the Black Ops numbers…
You can get a little more information about how the numbers come into play in the new Warzone Season 3 intro cinematic!
Here’s a full tour of Warzone’s new Verdansk ’84 map, so you can check it out for yourself. Presumably, you can also wait until the event is over and drop into the old-timey map for yourself.
Our match ended in the new changes to Verdansk’s Stadium and it made for a very dramatic final showdown! We even got to experience the brand-new Warzone Gulag which resembles a classic Black Ops 2 map!
Take a look at this celeb-packed new live-action trailer for Verdansk ’84’s official reveal. Starting very soon, the past version of Verdansk will be the only one available to play for all users.
And, according to this past leak, the original Warzone map will never be coming back. Of course, there aren’t too many reasons to complain – after all, Verdansk ’84 has few differences from the iconic original variant.
But of course, Call of Duty can’t have all the fun… Today, EA finally dropped an official BATTLEFIELD reveal and the internet is excited at the prospect of a Warzone competitor.
Especially as a fair few fans are already taking issue with the Warzone event’s disappointing conclusion…
