Rebirth Island is a new game centered on the success of an old favorite.

The new frontier in Call Of Duty is an old favorite. Season 1 of Call of Duty Warzone begins anew with the introduction of the second big-game map to finally hit the mega-shooter and super popular blockbuster titled "Rebirth Island."

Fans may recognize some features as the new map is a newly compiled rendition of Call of Duty Blackops 4 Alcatraz.

Other distinct areas around Call of Duty Rebirth Island are old fan favorites to those who recognize the map from the old Zombies hit "Mob of the Dead".

Fans will be hit with even more familiar sights as they adventure around the infamous prison island.  The map first was published in April 2019 in which it appeared in Black Ops 4.

The distinct lore of classic "Black Ops" can be felt in the ongoing CIA thriller newly expressed by Season 1 of Cold War's Warzone.

Although both the original battle royale map and the new addition can be accessed from anything running Call of Duty with Warzone installed.
