Nel corso della notte a cavallo tra il 21 ed il 22 Aprile, gli sviluppatori di Raven Software hanno finalmente mostrato i primi dettagli relativi all’ormai imminente Season 3 di Warzone.
Come avevamo anticipato anche in uno speciale pubblicato ieri pomeriggio, è ormai confermato che con la prossima stagione sbarcheranno su Caldera i mostri dell’operazione Monarch, un evento nell’evento che porterà Godzilla e King Kong sulla nostra amata isola del pacifico.
Partiamo proprio dall’Operazione Monarch, per poi vedere via via tutte le altre novità…
La nuova stagione aprirà i battenti il prossimo 27 Aprile. A distanza di circa due settimane, ovvero a partire dal prossimo 11 Maggio, inizierà invece l’Operazione Monarch vera e propria…
Dovrebbe essere quindi l’11 Maggio il giorno in cui Godzilla e Kong sbarcheranno definitivamente su Warzone.
Warzone Season 3: quali novità in arrivo il 27 Aprile?
Già dal prossimo 27 Aprile saranno però presenti su Caldera tutta una serie di novità che ci introducono proprio all’operazione Monarch. Vi sarà ad esempio un intero nuovo POI (punto di interesse, ndr), che interessa la zona di Dig Site.
Anche la zona di Peak sarà pesantemente aggiornata, ed apparirà molto più “pulita” e lineare rispetto a come si presenta oggi. Vi sarà inoltre un restyling alla zona della pista d’atterraggio, ed un significativo aggiornamento di tutta la zona della Laguna.
Ultimo, ma non certo per importanza, il fatto che con la Season 3 avremo un nuovo gulag per il battle royale. Stiamo parlando di Hold, gulag che in realtà si trova nella stiva di una nave ormeggiata sull’isola di Caldera.
Lo spazio in cui giocheremo l’1Vs1 sembra estremamente piccolo e simmetrico, ideale per degli scontri a fuoco rapidi e poco casuali.
Oltre a tutto questo, si segnala l’imminente sbarco della modalità originale “Prove di Ferro” Caldera. Per la prima volta nella storia di Warzone, Iron Trials si appresta a raggiungere anche la mappa del Pacifico, dove sarà giocabile in modalità quartetti.
Ecco il dettaglio su tutte queste novità:
WARZONE OVERVIEW Season 3
- Uncover Ancient Secrets, Loadout Items at Dig Site. Get your hands dirty at this new Monarch Point of Interest between the Ruins and Mines to find Supply Boxes and clues of enemies to come.
- New Offshore Gulag. Escape the Hold, Caldera’s new Gulag. Built by Toys for Bob, this three-lane arena welcomes all combatants to intense duels before redeployment.
- Prepare for Operation Monarch. Ancient cave paintings, massive skulls, and an otherworldly axe are just some of the odd sightings around Caldera…
New Point of Interest: Dig Site
A storm is coming to the sunny paradise of Caldera. As the dark clouds began to encroach its skies, the island’s phosphate mining operations expanded westward only to unexpectedly strike bone.
Unearthing giant skulls, rib cages, and remains of Serpentine creatures that some say came from the Hollow Earth, the mining company ultimately abandoned this operation, creating a new area known as the Monarch Dig Site.
Located between the Mine and the Ruins, Dig Site provides Operators the opportunity to rummage through abandoned excavation equipment, tents, and massive skeletons for Supply Boxes and other items.
Don’t question these ancient skulls’ origins for too long; the area’s verticality makes it an action-filled location, as well as a source of Cash generation, especially if a Contract or two spawns in here.
With ominous skies over Caldera, those defending the island and its secrets decided to refortify Caldera’s northern aircraft Runway and its stronghold on the Peak after two seasons of being under construction. Meanwhile, the recent storm front caused the tide rolled in on the Lagoon, revealing another path to the Lighthouse.
Peak Fortifications Atop Caldera
Thought the top of Caldera was a hot drop? It hasn’t even begun to peak, as the upcoming additions to this Point of Interest may draw in more Operators looking for Supply Boxes, Contracts, and a solid starting point for their rotation strategies.
All buildings atop the Peak are fully built up, with a fresh coat of paint revealing the symbol of the mysterious global organization known as Monarch – the cryptozoological defense force investigating Titan activity on the island.
Use new exterior and interior ascenders to quickly travel between old and new floors of this area, or drop down to the core to see some of the upgrades made to the otherwise natural structure.
With multiple towers fully constructed, it’s now even easier to drop from the Peak to most named areas… Of course, those flying down from it are just asking to be shot down out of the sky for a #CODTopPlay.
As darker days appear on the horizon, Caldera’s Runway will be rebuilt with a set of barracks, hangars, and other structural additions, replacing jungle overgrowth and abandoned lodgings in this area.
The Runway will also include a few decommissioned planes that could act as cover, as well as a few guard towers and water towers for getting a better survey of the area.
After the Runway is reconstructed, Operators who usually drop in at the Beachhead or the nearby operations building will find it easier to travel out to the Runway.
However, the lack of foliage make these rotation patterns less concealed, so be prepared for more visibility on this side of the map.
Hit the Sandbar, New to the Lagoon
Operators know of the bridge between the Lagoon’s notable Lighthouse and the rest of Caldera, but in this season, the shifting tides will reveal another path from the main island to the structure.
Expanding off the knee-high water route, this sandbar has multiple moored ships to explore or use as cover. In addition to a steep, rock-faced cliff behind a few houses, there are several sloping paths back up to the main island and to what already existed in this area.
Vehicles can also travel over this area — just be sure your driver knows how to handle off-road terrain and is not prone to any “sinking feelings” during tactical operations.
Giant skulls and rebuilt defenses are just two of the many clues towards what will come with Operation Monarch, a special limited-time event featuring the iconic Titans of the Monsterverse, Godzilla and Kong.
Along with bringing two of the largest stars in movie history to Call of Duty®, Operation Monarch will introduce a new game mode for Quads based on several classic experiences with a titan-sized twist.
While Operation Monarch won’t begin until 9 AM PT May 11, be on the lookout for the presence of ancient artifacts, Monarch Research equipment and tents, as well as…well, it won’t take much investigating to see the massive glowing axe jutting out of the ground right near the Resort.
New Gulag Season 3 Warzone – Hold
The mines underneath Caldera are no longer the place for Operators to face each other.
Enter the Hold: a new Gulag developed by Toys for Bob. This roughly symmetrical arena is based in the belly of a ship moored just off the coast of Caldera, with identical hallways on the perimeter of an otherwise open space.
Continuing their promise to improve your experience in Warzone, Raven Software and other studios are planning to introduce more quality-of-life updates with this new season of content, which will be communicated by their Patch Notes coming next week.
Operation Monarch is likely to have a great impact on Caldera, but something else seems to be shaking and booming underneath the island. Expect more intel on the secrets below Caldera’s surface later on in the season.
Also, with Rebirth Island recently reinforced, Operators may have to undergo an exfiltration mission… Which could involve finding a radio for safe extraction before the final circle closes in. Be on the lookout for another Rebirth twist on a classic Warzone mode to come from Beenox when the mid-season update arrives.
