As for what’s new with Warzone 2, in recent weeks Activision Blizzard has shared plenty of information on the battle royale’s new features and game mode.
The biggest addition to the series will be Warzone 2‘s DMZ mode, which will task players with looting an open-world zone and extracting alive. Yesterday (November 14), Activision Blizzard published a blog on what the new game mode will entail.
“The goal is to loot up and get out alive,” reads the article. “It’s about exploring an active world of AQ forces and enemy operators, completing missions and objectives, and exfiltrating with loot, cash, valuables, and rewards to build out your inventory for the next infiltration.”
Within DMZ’s extraction zone, players will need to contend with radiation and sandstorms while completing tasks for a range of the game’s factions. Earlier in the week, developers reportedly told streamers that the game mode shouldn’t be compared to fellow extraction-shooter Escape From Tarkov.
As for the traditional Warzone battle royale mode, players can expect a new Gulag that requires teaming up with their rivals to survive.
