Games Radar reports that the Warzone 2 map Al Mazrah has been formally unveiled as a component of the Call of Duty Next demo, confirming long-running rumors about the next battle royale arena. Al Mazrah will have numerous systems that have been modified for Warzone 2.0 and is billed as “the biggest battle royale map we’ve ever produced” situated in “the desert of a fictional region of The Middle East.”
In order to keep Al Mazrah feeling vibrant even when there aren’t any players present, the map will also be covered in Strongholds guarded by AI foes that are a part of a new faction. Additionally, the new Warzone map, Al Mazrah, will launch with Warzone 2.0 on Wednesday, Nov. 16. So only two weeks after Modern Warfare 2’s launch according to EarlyGame.
Interestingly, vehicles can run out of gas, necessitating a visit to a gas station to refill them. Tires can also be repaired if damaged. Other new features include proximity chat for teams; load-out items in hidden caches underground, with looting now having some logic applied (like grenades in toolboxes); and the dangerous circle now splitting into smaller separate circles before merging for the final battle.
We have to acknowledge though that the Middle East has been featured several times with different Call of Duty versions such as Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Heroes, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, Call of Duty: WWII and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019).
