On the hunt for information on Warzone Fort Resurgence? We've got you covered. Season 5 of Call of Duty's battle royale is finally here and Raven Software has unveiled a wealth of new content coming to Warzone.

Fort Resurgence is one of a handful of new modes arriving over the course of the season in addition to a new battle pass that includes the FR Avancer and Graves as a playable Operator. As with any new Warzone mode, it's slightly different to the usual dose of battle royale action.

Before we reveal more about Warzone Fort Resurgence, take a look at our other guides showcasing how to unlock the Nicki Minaj Operator and when the next double XP event takes place.

What is Warzone Fort Resurgence?

The Warzone Fort Resurgence mode is an all-new respawn mode making its debut as part of the Season 5 update. Instead of Ashika Island or Vondel, a small section of the Al Mazrah map containing the Al Bagra Fortress will act as the battleground.

Worried the map will replace any of the aforementioned arenas? Fear not, Warzone Fort Resurgence will be available along with Ashika Island and Vondel.

Although Warzone Fort Resurgence isn't exactly a new map, the small section of Al Mazrah means there's even more variety which is always a good thing.

Warzone Fort Resurgence release date

Activision says Warzone Fort Resurgence will launch at some point during Season 5. With it not arriving at the start of the season, we expect it to appear as part of the Season 5 Reloaded update which is expected to launch on August 30, 2023.


Of course, the date for the mid-season update is subject to change. At the moment, there are a few more weeks before you can drop into another dose of fast-paced Resurgence action.
