Is there a Resurgence map in Warzone 2?
Warzone 2’s star attraction is undoubtedly Al Mazrah for full-blown battle royale matches. But is there a smaller Resurgence map for those looking for respawning and tight-knit gameplay?
In the game’s early months, the OG Warzone experience let players drop into the fictional location of Verdansk and compete against over 100 other players until one player, duo, trio, or squad was left standing.
Eventually, the devs decided to add to the game’s repertoire of maps by launching the much smaller Rebirth Island map. Intended for smaller lobbies, Rebirth Island served as Warzone’s first ‘Resurgence’ map which focused on respawning, in comparison to Verdansk’s more one-and-done approach – save for the Gulag.
Fortune’s Keep was another popular Resurgence map addition as time went on, and with Warzone 2 launching with Al Mazrah, many wondered whether a small Resurgence map would make its way to the game in the following seasons.
Does Warzone 2 have a Resurgence map?
As of June 14, 2023, Warzone 2 will have two full-fledged Resurgence maps in Ashika Island and Vondel.
Warzone 2 Season 2 saw the Ashika Island Resurgence map make its way to the game, and a few months later in Season 4, Vondel is set to make its debut. At this moment, it’s not known if both maps will be playable at the same time, but it’s safe to say Vondel will take the spotlight in Season 4.
Ashika Island compares quite favorably to previous Resurgence maps in terms of size, with it being bigger than Rebirth Island and slightly smaller than Fortune’s Keep. Also, there is a cool Easter Egg and tie-into Black Ops Cold War Zombies that players will appreciate too.
It might also please certain CoD fans to know that High Moon Studios have created Ashika Island just like they did Fortune’s Keep.
Meanwhile, when it comes to size, Vondel ranks somewhere in between Al Mazrah and Ashika Island. With more POIs to explore, it’s expected to be a different type of Resurgence experience in Warzone 2, in comparison to Ashika Island.
Beenox, the creators of the fan-favorite Rebirth Island map returned to craft Vondel in Warzone 2. It’s safe to say expectations are high for the Season 4 Vondel map, given the success of Rebirth Island.
