After numerous weeks of leaks and speculation, regarding the map's setting and points of interest (POI), Activision, Raven Software and co. have released a host of new details in anticipation of the next era of Warzone landing next week. Here's the latest on the new Caldera map coming soon to Call of Duty: Warzone Pacific in Season 1.
The first takeaway, aside from the fact that the map is completely surrounded by tropical ocean waves, is that it will have 15 distinct regions to start — a much more simplified approach compared to when Verdansk was initially revealed in March 2020.
That isn't to say that Caldera will be anywhere near as small as Rebirth Island, however. The new map is said to offer "hundreds of lesser points of interest" for players to investigate and use to their tactical advantage.
From deep drydock basins to untouched 12th century ruins surrounded by tiered pools and verdant hot springs, Caldera is sure to be quite the switch up from Verdansk.
At the center of the new island is Peak, which holds the highest point of the map. While the volcano remains dormant for now, its status will surely be something that becomes a storyline in seasons to come.
As some have pointed out on Twitter, perhaps the biggest new feature is that Caldera will seemingly allow players to be able to climb its natural rock formations.
Season One of Warzone Pacific is set to debut Caldera on Dec. 8 for those who own Call of Duty: Vanguard, before opening up its access to all players on Dec. 9.
