We know that 80s Verdansk is on the way and we have our first look at it below. is almost here and we're kicking it off with a nuclear holocaust. Neat!
LATEST - Stage 4 Is Coming
Well... Verdansk has been nuked already. If this is the first time you're reading this, you've missed it. Sorry!
However, there's no new map yet so what the hell is happening?
Right now, all you can play on is Rebirth Island (Night) and we're not expecting the new 80s Verdansk map to drop until at least 15:00 EST / 20:00 BST.
Still, for now, you can check out a brand new first look at the new map's "Dam" area below:

Nuke Event Timings
So, we don't know exactly when a Nuke will drop. Or if one will drop at all! It does seem highly likely though.
There hasn't been too much information about what the event entails, but we do know that it is going to be split into four stages ahead of Season 3's start at 16:00 EST / 21:00 BST on April 22nd.
If the above isn't too clear, we have the full list of stage timings below. Any one of these could be when the Nukes are launched.
- Stage 1: 15:00 EST / 20:00 BST (April 21) to 17:00 EST / 22:00 BST (April 21)
- Stage 2: 17:00 EST / 22:00 BST (April 21) to 00:00 EST / 05:00 BST (April 22)
- Stage 3: 00:00 EST / 05:00 BST (April 22) to 15:00 EST / 20:00 BST (April 22)
- Stage 4: 15:00 EST / 20:00 BST (April 22) to 16:00 EST / 21:00 BST (April 22)
Other Possible Times
It hasn't actually been confirmed by Raven or Activision when Verdansk is going to be nuked, however, so some other times are possible.
VGC has reported that April 21 will just be the start of the in-game event, with the big bang not ushering in the new map until the following day.
VGC say: "While kicking off on April 21, the activities leading to the updated map’s reveal will culminate in an explosive in-game event on April 22, designed to narratively transition Warzone from the Modern Warfare era to a Cold War era setting more in line with the most recent premium series release."
Therefore, it's possible that the tease is just part one, and more events and playable moments will be teased between now and the beginning of Season 3.
Of course, we'll be sure to let you know when the time for Verdansk being nuked is confirmed. For now, set your alarms for 3pm ET on April 21.
