There are a few new areas (such as a giant Array built for sniping, a Salt Mine that replaces the old Quarry area, and “Aqueduct” where Dam used to be), but the biggest takeaway from this early footage is that many of the old Verdansk areas have been significantly reworked. Some of the changes don’t amount to much more than the aforementioned coat of paint and a couple of new structures, but other key points of interest have been almost entirely redesigned. The best example of the latter point that we’ve seen so far has to be “Stadium” which is still under construction in this time-warped version of the map.
Based on what we’ve seen and heard so far, these seem to be “Verdansk84’s” new points of interest. Remember, though, that these may not include all the new areas or account for old areas that have been noticeably redesigned:
- Military Base
- Salt Mine
- TV Station
- Storage Town
- Train Station
- Promenade East
- Promenade West
Oh, and Warzone players will be happy (or at least interested) to hear that there’s a new Gulag area modeled after the Standoff map from Black Ops 2.
Overall, this update may disappoint some who were hoping for an entirely new map, but it appears to at least be more substantial than the reskin that some suggested it would be. We’ll see how it plays, but the new area might just be the shot in the arm that Warzone needed.
