Maps

Fortune’s Keep | New Map

Advertisement

A brand-new Warzone Resurgence Battle Royale map featuring stunning vistas and undiscovered riches.

Slightly larger than Rebirth Island, this island features four distinct New Points of Interest:

  • Town
    • Cobblestone alleyways and flat rooftops to traverse across, an old fortress in the town center, a coastal path with a gazebo, and a graveyard.
  • Smuggler’s Cove
    • A lighthouse and a series of fishing huts above sea caves that contain stockpiles of equipment and loot.
  • Keep
    • The largest landmark on the island, this medieval fortress includes winding hallways, ramparts, watchtowers, and a tunnel system.
  • Winery
    • An old monastery with entrances on all sides and an underground passage, nearby a military camp.

This new map also comes with a series of brand new features to experience including…

  • Mercenary Cash Extraction | New Public Event
    • A.I. units will attempt to air lift Cash. Players can choose to intercept this extraction for rewards.
    • This Event occurs during the 2nd and 4th Circles, indicated by a signal flare and an icon on the Tac Map.
  • Black Market Supply Run | New Contract
    • This contract will require Players to track down the Black Market Buy Station before a timer expires.
    • Players will have access to unique items such as the Sequencer Grenade, the Nebula V Minigun, Foresight, a Specialist Bonus, or one of several classified Weapons.

    • Players can counter this effect via the Battle Hardened Perk or using a Stim.
    • Can only be acquired through the new Black Market Buy Station.

Caldera Updates

Advertisement

For Season Four, our goal is to open up the map for cleaner sightlines and reduced visual noise on the map. This “arid” approach to map direction will bring a new dynamic to the gameplay - bush camping will become a rarity rather than the norm, it brings added value to Field Upgrades like the Deployable Cover, and positional awareness and proximity to landmarks now being of high priority.

The many Gameplay changes made in Season Three, such as the Sniper rebalance, the Ghost movement change and the addition of the Serpentine Perk, were made in preparation of Season Four - knowing that improved map sightlines require adjustments in certain areas of the gameplay to keep engagements in a healthy balance.

With this being the most comprehensive set of changes to Caldera since Season One, we will continue to monitor feedback and sentiment and make additional changes where necessary.

  • Storage TownNew Point of Interest
    • The return of the fan favorite POI, Storage Town, now visible on the Tac Map.
    • This POI will be used for a dedicated “Clash” Limited-Time Mode in Week 3 of Season Four.
  • Micro POIsNew Map Elements
    • The addition of new micro POIs to fill gaps between the major POIs to offer more looting and engagement opportunities.
  • Mercenary Bunkers / Golden KeycardsNew Gameplay
    • New keycards found in ground loot provide access to any of the 7 mercenary bunkers hidden across the map - indicated on the Tac Map with yellow circles.
  • “Arid” VegetationUpdated Gameplay
    • Vegetation across Caldera has been reduced by 50%.
    • A new 'arid' look to the map was implemented to offer some visual variety to this season. It has the added benefits of improved performance on all platforms, better Player reads, and location awareness by opening up views to landmarks. Additionally, many plant Models have quality improvements on the Xbox One.
  • Fighter PlaneUpdated Gameplay
    • With the positive response to the Fighter Plane returning in Operation Monarch we have re-enabled these vehicles for Battle Royale and will continue to monitor sentiment and engagement over the season.
  • Weapon Trade Stations | New Gameplay | In-Season
    • Weapon Trade Stations have been added to various locations across Caldera that allow players to trade in their weapons for high value loot.

Season 4 Update Download Size and Preload Details

In the meantime, it's worth preparing yourself for the update's release.

Advertisement

Players on PC and Xbox will have to wait until 5pm BST/12pm ET to download the update, but PlayStation players should be able to preload it ahead of time. Once it's downloaded, you'll just need to install it at the time Season 4 begins. Nice and easy.

As CharlieIntel has pointed out, the Warzone Pacific Season 4 update isn't a small one, coming in at 21GB for preload on PlayStation, and will likely be around the same size on other platforms.

Once we know the download size for everyone, we'll be sure to update you.

Once we've dived into Season 4, we'll have guides ready to go on the best guns to use and what the meta is following the update.
