New Call Of Duty: Warzone Verdansk map goes live early and reveals 1980s setting

The redesigned map for Call Of Duty: Warzone accidentally switched on early for some players, offering the first clear look at 1980s Verdansk.

The new version of Call Of Duty: Warzone map Verdansk is set in the 1980s after all, just as everyone predicted, but the way it’s been revealed is not how Activision originally intended.

Officially, Season 3 of Call Of Duty: Warzone isn’t meant to begin until around 8pm tonight, but for some reason the new map switched on hours before that, although only for certain players.

How and why they got access isn’t clear but enough were able to record video footage that you can now get a clear look at the new map and its 1980s setting.

YouTuber Bartonologist was able to set-up a private match and play until the end, without anyone trying to shut it down.

As you can see from the video the basic layout of the map is more or less the same, but most of the buildings look different, with a fresher and more colourful coat of paint.

In fact, the whole tone of the map has changed to be more colourful, rather than the almost monochrome dourness of the original – although how long that will last remains to be seen.

The biggest changes to the map are that instead of a dam there’s now just aqueducts and there’s a salt mine instead of the quarry. There’s also a new area called Summit in the northwest.

Other changes including getting to the map via helicopter instead of cargo plane and switching the loot to only weapons from Black Ops Cold War, to match the period setting.

Since no one is clear why they got in in the first place it’s unclear whether anyone will get another chance before this evening, but Activision are aware of the leak so the answer is probably no.
