The new Warzone nuke event may have just gotten an official date!
What's coming for Verdansk, and when will it arrive?
LATEST - Nuke Event Release Date Revealed
Thanks to a new teaser from the Call of Duty social media accounts, we have a good idea of when the Warzone Nuke Event will take place, and that's just before when Season 3 is due to start.
That will be 12pm PT on April 21st.
80s Themed Map Coming, According to Leaks
According to leakers, the new map will be 80s themed.
ZestyCODLeaks said that all of the POIs will return but in an "old fashioned way".
It'll be interesting to see how the locations look and whether there'll be any 80s themed Easter Eggs added.
What We Know About the Warzone Nuke Event
While no nuke event has been outright confirmed, there are plenty of signs.
At the start of Season 2, when the ship crashed into the coastline, Zombies could only be found there. However, they have since made their way to Prison, and have expanded throughout Verdansk.
Players can also various missile silos have opened across the map.
It seems almost certain that they'll be used to blow up Warzone's map and rid it of zombies, and that's not all of the evidence.
Some audio files have also leaked, making it pretty clear that a Nuke Event is on the way soon.
Famous Warzone Operators can even be heard saying things like "Verdansk is lost" and ushering players towards exfil locations.
At this point, a Warzone Nuke Event is inevitable. And with recent teasers, we expect it will come at 12pm PT on April 21st, the day before Season 3 officially begins.
Season 3 Map Leak?
With it looking like Verdansk is getting nuked, a lot of people are talking about what Warzone could do next.
How can they improve on a place as legendary as Verdansk, right?
Well, how about a map double that size? Would that do it?
Rumours are that the new Warzone map will-indeed be set in the Ural Mountains and feature a number of Black Ops Cold War maps amalgamated into one 250-player experience.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
What's Next for Warzone?
Finally, a Warzone Nuke Event should usher in a new map for the battle royale.
Rumors suggest that it'll be large and based on the open Fireteam maps from Black Ops Cold War, and maybe the Ural Mountains map from Outbreak - among plenty other possibilities.
None of that is confirmed just yet, but a Nuke Event will be the perfect time for Warzone's new map to be introduced, kicking off Call of Duty Season 3 with a (literal) bang.
