Warzone players are devastated every time Rebirth Island is removed, but Raven Software are bringing it back in a new playlist called ‘Rebirth After Dark.’ Here’s everything you need to know about Season 5’s Rebirth Island After Dark mode.

Warzone developers Raven Software brought new lighting to Rebirth Island with the Season 5 update and players loved it. However, the Alcatraz-inspired map keeps being removed with the daily playlist updates, and players have been begging Raven to let it stay.

Rebirth Island is set to return from Friday, September 2 through Sunday, September 4. It’s not just regular Rebirth Island though, it’s called ‘Rebirth After Dark.’

In the Warzone Pacific Season 5 patch notes, Raven said that Rebirth After Dark “allows Players to experience this fan favorite experience after the sun has set.” Plus, it’s available in all squad sizes.

Judging from the small picture that was added alongside, it’s not quite as dark as the Rebirth Island night mode that was part of the Destruction of Verdansk event. After Verdansk was nuked, players were transported to an almost pitch-black version of Rebirth, and players have been wanting it to return ever since.

After Dark, however, appears to be not long after sunset. So, Rebirth shouldn’t be completely dark, but the setting sun should cast long shadows giving the map an eerie, darker tone. The Rebirth Island Resurgence gameplay should remain much the same, though.

We expect all of Fortune’s Keeps other squad sizes to make a return following Rebirth Island After Dark’s removal after September 4, and normal Rebirth Quads should return as well.

Raven should bring even more content in the Season 5 Reloaded update, and you can learn more about Warzone 2 and Modern Warfare 2’s multiplayer at the Call of Duty Next event.
