Call of Duty: Warzone 2 is just around the corner and Activision has revealed some big changes that will come with it. According to the video game publisher, the new Battle Pass system will get a huge revamp.
The game publisher also revealed that players will be able to preload Warzone 2 on November 14 at 1 PM Eastern Time. Unfortunately, Warzone 1 servers will shut down on November 16 at 11 PM Eastern Time.
Warzone 2, which will launch two hours after the server shutdown, will bring a lot of great things to the game. Here is the latest announcement by Activision.
Warzone 2 will bring huge Battle Pass changes
In the seasons of Modern Warfare (2019), the Battle Pass system offered players a collection of free items, including functional weapons and Call of Duty Points, just by playing the game. It gave our community visibility into what content they were earning or buying, with the ability to upgrade and access 100+ items, including a new Operator, Weapon Blueprints, and more.
In Season 01, we are introducing a brand-new iteration of the Battle Pass with a host of innovations — players will have more choices and more agency than ever before.
Instead of a linear stream of tiers set out in a scrolling row along the bottom of your screen, your Battle Pass takes the form of a multi-Sector map. Players will unlock items using earned Battle Token Tier Skips across this map, which is themed within the current season.
Each map has at least 20 Sectors with five items in each Sector —tokens can be used to either unlock adjacent Sectors or earn more items within an unlocked Sector.
Essentially, these tokens can be used to unlock specific items within the Battle Pass at your own pace — whether it is a new free functional weapon or a cool new Operator Skin, you have control over what gets unlocked earlier on the road to 100% map completion.
Are you looking for a particularly impressive Operator Skin, Weapon Blueprint, or one of the new weapons? Then pick the appropriate Sector and start acquiring tokens to unlock those items!
Additionally, Activision will release even more details about the upcoming Warzone 2 changes next week. Considering that the game will be released next Wednesday, there is still plenty of time to give updates to players.
Warzone hasn’t been very popular and has struggled to keep up with Fortnite Battle Royale and Apex Legends. However, the upcoming release could change things and propel it to the top!
