The hotly-anticipated launch of Warzone Pacific is right around the corner, much to the excitement of the community that will be bidding farewell to Verdansk in favour of Caldera, an all-new map set in the Pacific. With new points of interest to explore along with a range of new playlists, there's plenty of content dropping into the battle royale in the coming weeks.
Most players will be able to drop into a new-look Warzone at the same time but a lucky portion of the community will be able to drop in early. With that said, here's how to play Warzone Pacific early.
How To Play Warzone Pacific Early
Warzone publisher Activision has confirmed that those that own a copy of Call of Duty Vanguard will be able to play Caldera 24 hours before those that don't, meaning that several players will be dropping into the new map on December 2nd rather than December 3rd.
December 2nd marks the start of Vanguard Season 1 and will be where the game's entire weapon arsenal is integrated into the battle royale alongside the arsenals of Black Ops Cold War and 2019's Modern Warfare.
What Happens If I Don't Own Vanguard?
If you don't own Vanguard, you will have to wait until December 3rd before dropping into Caldera but while you wait, Rebirth Island will still be available to play so there's no downtime before Caldera is available to everyone.
If you can't wait a day, simply head to the Battle.net store on PC or the store on Xbox or PlayStation to download Vanguard. This will grant you access to Caldera a little earlier to give you the upper hand over the opposition.
