The iconic high-rise plays a big part in the trailer you can see below and is situated near Downtown on the map, where the Broadcast Tower used to be.

Activision says: "The headquarters of the Nakatomi Corporation have moved from sunny Los Angeles to Verdansk’s Downtown for a limited time. This is the tallest single structure seen in Warzone and includes five floors of a space that will be familiar to those who know and love the original Die Hard."

A CIA Outpost and some Survival Camps have also cropped up around Verdansk, also linking the 80s Action Heroes theme to the classic movies.

It doesn't feature much information, but it does go over what map changes are coming to Warzone and what the new Operators will look like.

Rambo & John McClean Arrive

Two new Operators have arrived as part of the Season 3 Reloaded update. Rambo and John McClean are iconic 80s action heroes and you'll be able to get them from bundles in the store.

JOHN McCLANE: He's here this week

The Rambo and Die Hard Operator Bundles will be available for a limited time from May 20.

Treyarch have also confirmed that "Rambo and John McClane are brand-new Call of Duty Operators; these are not skins for previously released Operators."


New Bow Killstreak

Continuing the Rambo content, a new killstreak, in the shape of a bow, can now be grabbed in battle royale.

"Effective against both infantry and vehicles, this new Killstreak can help your squad turn the tide of battle through unconventional warfare. The longer you pull back the bow, the farther the explosive-tipped arrow will go, so be sure to adjust your strength as needed to hit targets at longer distances."
