After Al Bagra Fortress Resurgence was not included in the Call of Duty: Warzone Season 5 Reloaded launch, fans are wondering exactly when Fort Resurgence goes live.
Warzone Season 5 Reloaded premiered with three new weapons, the return of Armored Royale, and new Ranked Play rewards. Fans were also expecting the release of Fort Resurgence, but the map and mode were not included in the first weekly playlist of the season despite its release date announcement in the roadmap and patch notes.
The official CODUpdates X account was forced to post, "The new Al Bagra Fortress Resurgence Mode will be live next week. We've rectified the patch notes to reflect the correct timing." The mistake left the community confused, frustrated, and ready for the next weekly playlist.
So, when will players be able to explore Fort Resurgence in Warzone?
When Does Warzone Fort Resurgence Go Live?
Warzone Fort Resurgence goes live on Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2023, at 12 p.m. ET. The upcoming Warzone weekly playlist for Season 5 Reloaded shows Al Bagra Fortress Resurgence as a playable option for Quads only.
Fort Resurgence will have its own playlist separate to the Resurgence rotation that includes Vondel and Ashika Island. For the first time, Warzone players will have three Resurgence maps to play in one season.
The Sept. 6 weekly playlist will also feature Armored Royale, Plunder, and Lockdown, along with all traditional Battle Royale and Resurgence modes.
Warzone Fort Resurgence Explained
Warzone Fort Resurgence brings Resurgence to Al Bagra Fortress. The map is said to be within the boundaries of the Fortress POI in Al Mazrah and its immediate surroundings.
Although Fortress was a wildly unpopular map for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Ranked and competitive play, it could be a great playground for the fast-paced Resurgence play style.
It might be hard to imagine Fortress as a better Resurgence map than Vondel, but its close-quarters layout will be a great place to complete Camo Challenges or the specific weapon challenges needed to unlock the Pickaxe Melee weapon, 9mm Daemon Pistol, and Lachmann Shroud SMG.
