It's "New Gulag Day" in Warzone and players are understandably thrilled

We all know that there's a few changes being introduced to Verdansk '84 in Season 4, but we're here to talk about The Gulag. You know the one; "Taunt your enemies with a well-placed stone" and all that. Well... Standoff is out and Hijacked is in. Here's what we know about Warzone's Season 4 Gulag.

LATEST - New Look At A Hijacked Gulag

We can imagine a lot of us know what Hijacked is like by this point. It's one of the best maps to come out of Treyarch and it's been a long-requested feature in the new Call of Duty game. Now, the central area of that map is the make-up of Warzone's Gulag and we have a cheeky overview below:

If there's one thing to note it is the fact that the new Gulag is a lot brighter. Visibility should be greatly improved and the Gulag should go back to being about gunplay and not screen brightness.

The Gulag Is Changing For Season 4

In Season 3, we saw the central area of Standoff replace Nuketown in The Gulag. Now, we're looking forwards to Season 4 and there's a new area being replicated in Warzone's post-death battleground.

Hijacked's central area is going to be the next locale replicated in The Gulag. The iconic Black Ops 2 map is also going to be making its way to Black Ops Cold War as one of the new Multiplayer maps added in Season 4.

Much like last season, we're expecting this change to remain in place for the entirety of Season 4 before being replaced at the start of Season 5.

" This truncated version features a plywood re-creation of the yacht’s central area, a prime location for important objectives such as a Domination flag in Multiplayer, which has the same location as the Overtime flag spawn during a Gulag duel."

In terms of how The Gulag works itself, this won't be changing. It will still be a kill or be killed environment that offers a last-ditch chance at redemption. The map you kill or be killed on is changing. That's all.

Warzone Season 4 is due to arrive on June 17th. You can read about the new Gulag and more on the Call of Duty Blog here.
