In Call of Duty: Warzone 2, the circles used in the battle royale mode are being updated significantly.
The first Warzone followed the traditional battle royale format, where players are confined to a small area and forced to cluster together, but the second Warzone is taking a new approach. Players will not be herded into a single, static circle, as was previously assumed, but rather into a number of interconnected zones.
According to Jack O’Hara, the game’s director, “the circle has been a staple of Battle Royales, it’s incredibly hard to break away from it.”
Almost like a cell dividing, we’ve implemented a new mechanism in which a single circle can divide into two, three, or even four smaller circles, each of which will eventually collapse. Teams are broken up into smaller groups and small-scale conflicts break out as a result. These arcs begin to converge at a particular point.
Strategic and lethal
This isn’t some cosmetic adjustment. Even though the players start off divided into several groups, the instant they all converge on one another is when the real action begins.
One day you wake up and realise, ‘Ok, we’ve cleared out our circle, we think we’re good. After then, O’Hara stated, “those spheres collide, re-form, and engage in a highly focused conflict.
People in nearby buildings think, “Here we go, it’s about to get confident.” As soon as the circles touch down, the last battle begins. We think this is a fantastic real-world event and it adds a fun edge to the gameplay.
That’s something you can try out for yourself very soon. The release date for Warzone 2 is rapidly approaching. We’ve already seen the new battle royale map, which uses Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s enhanced underwater gunplay.
