A collective of Call of Duty (COD): Warzone informants recently published a video showcasing the unreleased Ural Mountains map.

The eight-minute video was published via a tweet by a group of COD leakers around 10:30 p.m. ET last Sunday, June 6. In the video, fans were able to watch unreleased gameplay footage of a user exploring the map and participating in typical in-game activities. The individual aspects shown in the video have either confirmed or lent credibility to several past rumors including its size and placement in the franchise.

The group, known as The CheeseBurger Boys (@Cheezburgerboyz), published the video via Twitter late on Sunday, June 6. Unfortunately, at the time of writing, the tweet has been "withheld" by Twitter due to "a report from the copyright holder." Clearly, Activision was on the ball with this one and struck the video down before it could fully make the rounds.

However, we're sure that interested parties will likely be able to find it circulating elsewhere.

In the video, fans could watch a user explore the vast map of the Ural Mountains as if it was any other day in Verdansk—picking up gear and so on. The sheer size of the territory allegedly confirmed suspicions about the large player capacity originally planned for the map.

Additionally, a few minor locations within the mountains have been confirmed, including the Mines, Ruka, Sanitorium, and Zoo.

Eagle-eyed fans pointed out the distinction between the current heads-up display (HUD) or status interface in Warzone and that seen in the video. According to them, the visuals are closer to COD: Blackout, further confirming that the map was likely never meant for Warzone players to see.

At the time of writing, the video is still hidden under a copyright claim. Activision has yet to comment on whether or not Warzone players will ever have the opportunity to explore the Ural Mountains for themselves.
