February 15, 2023: Ashika Island launches today! Scroll down for everything there is to know about the map.

The Warzone 2 resurgence map is a hot topic of conversation within the community. Although there's plenty of information on the Al Mazrah map packed with new points of interest to explore, many are hoping Infinity Ward brings an alternative into the battle royale.

A resurgence map acts as a popular alternative to the standard dose of battle royale action. The idea of the last player standing remains the same but the mode allows players to drop back into the action after a set period of time.

Acting as a smaller alternative to Al Mazrah, the map will promote a faster pace of play.
