Yes, you heard right! MW3 Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep are added to the roster!
At the Call of Duty Next event, the gaming world held its breath as the curtain was pulled back to reveal the future of Warzone in Modern Warfare 3. Among the announcements that left fans on the edge of their seats, one revelation stood out like a beacon of nostalgia and anticipation: the return of MW3 Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep. Brace yourselves for an exhilarating journey as we explore the resurgence of these beloved battlegrounds and what they mean for the future of Warzone.
Call of Duty Next event
At Call of Duty Next, fans got a sneak peek at Warzone’s latest map, Urzikstan. This marks the fourth large-scale map in Warzone history, joining the ranks of Verdansk, Caldera, and Al Mazrah. However, Urzikstan distinguishes itself by deviating from the trend of vast open landscapes and instead presents players with a dense urban setting, promising thrilling close-quarters combat.
But the excitement doesn’t stop at Urzikstan. Modern Warfare 3 brings more to the table. Ashika Island and Vondel from MW2 will also find their way into the Warzone map rotation. This expansion ensures that players will have an even broader array of locations to explore and dominate in the game.
Competitive action is on the horizon
Raven Software Senior Creative Director Ted Timmins dropped some exciting news during COD Next. He confirmed that Warzone would introduce a Ranked Play mode in early 2024. This addition will undoubtedly provide a new level of competitiveness and strategy for players looking to test their skills on a grand stage.
MW3 Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep’s return
Just when you thought the announcements couldn’t get any better, Ted Timmins delivered a bombshell by revealing the return of Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep to Warzone in Modern Warfare 3.
Fortune’s Keep, primarily developed by High Moon Studios and originally launched in June 2022, is set to make a comeback in early 2024. This small-scale Resurgence map left an indelible mark on players when it first appeared. Its fast-paced action and unique layout kept players engaged, but it was eventually rotated out of the map pool when WZ2 launched in November 2023.
MW3 Rebirth Island, on the other hand, will make its return to Warzone a bit later in 2024. This fan-favorite map has been known for its intense battles and tight spaces, creating an environment where every move matters.
The return of these beloved maps is sure to spark excitement among the Warzone community, offering both nostalgia for long-time players and thrilling new experiences for newcomers. Modern Warfare 3 is shaping up to be a game-changer for Warzone, promising a diverse map pool and competitive gameplay options that will keep players engaged for years to come.
Get ready to dive back into the heart-pounding action of Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep, because 2024 is set to be an unforgettable year for Warzone enthusiasts.
