Activision is growing into the famous action heroes of the 80's Call of Duty: Season 3 of Warzone Recharged update. In addition to the previously announced operator skins that will come for John McClane and Rambo, Verdansk himself will also see major changes to celebrate Die Hard and First Blood, films that are probably older than most people. who play Warzone.
The biggest addition? Die Hard's Nakatomi Plaza takes over the city center. According to Activision, the famous highrise in the heart of the original Die Hard will be the "single tallest structure" ever seen in the war zone.
Like the other downtown Warzone locations, don’t expect to explore all of Nakatomi’s apartments. The building will feature "five floors of a space that will be familiar to those who know and love the original Die Hard." Part of this space is the rooftop, where players will find an optional mission to deactivate C4 and "interrupt an erroneous weapons deal." The most exciting thing is that players will be able to enter Nakatomi's vault and "escape with their riches," although Activision suggests that acquiring a key will be a process. The new building will be located on the site where the diffusion tower currently stands and will apparently also replace its surrounding blocks.
That alone is the biggest mid-season map update Warzone has ever seen, but it doesn't stop there. Two separate locations receive Rambo treatment: look for new survival camps around Verdansk, where the campsites were located, as well as a CIA outpost in one of Verdansk's aircraft hangars. Activision makes no mention of special missions on these sites, so Nakatomi seems to be the star of the show.
The makeover of Warzone action heroes will also come with a new time-limited mode, Power Grab. Battle Royale rules are still in place, but players can gain backlash for their teammates by collecting fallen enemy tags, contracts, and random supply boxes (or can be purchased with money as usual). The collection of labels fills a meter next to the screen, which will also allow you to get a UAV, an advanced gas mask and specialized bonuses. This is a bit intriguing, but with a lot of normal BR rules, I doubt Power Grab will develop differently from a normal Resurgence game.
And like most of the fun stuff coming to Warzone, all the action heroics will only be there for a while. Operator packages for McClane and Rambo will go on sale on May 19 and will only be available until June 18. Activision did not explicitly say that map updates will also be reversed, but it is a solid bet.
