Nakatomi Plaza in Warzone was added in honor of Die Hard's John McClane joining the roster of operators in 80s Verdansk. Activision has revealed downtown will be getting Nakatomi Plaza as a point of interest.

The first look at this addition to downtown Verdansk came with the 80s Action Heroes trailer released on Tuesday, May 18 via the official Call of Duty YouTube channel. During one particular helicopter flyover, fans noted a suspiciously familiar skyscraper towering over the area. This is, indeed, the Nakatomi Plaza building which will likely be an important location for players looking to take advantage of the Action Heroes event.

Nakatomi Plaza will be temporarily replacing the Broadcast Tower and immediate surrounding area for the duration of the event. Inside, players will have five fully explorable floors to run around in—also seen in the 80s Action Heroes trailer. Allegedly, these, of course, are also lifted from the film. It appears that Activision wants to give Warzone players the opportunity to live out their very own Die Hard dreams.

Additionally, a new set of in-match challenges will be available concerning the new location. Players can spend time in various modes looking to take down their fellow action fans or simply searching for the riches that lie beyond the Nakatomi Vault.

Nakatomi Plaza will be available from Thursday, May 20 through to Friday, June 18.
