Warzone 2 Al Mazrah map has been officially revealed at Call of Duty Next

UPDATE: Warzone 2 map Al Mazrah has officially been announced as part of today’s Call of Duty Next showcase, confirming longstanding leaks about the next battle royale playground.

Al Mazrah, described as “the biggest map we’ve ever made” and set in “the desert of a fictional region of Western Asia,” will include multiple systems updated for Warzone 2.0.

There’s a new player-herding circle mechanic that can spawn multiple circles at once, for example, and the Gulag 2.0 respawn purgatory includes 2v2 shootouts and a Jailer enemy. The map will also be covered with Strongholds defended by AI enemies that are part of a new faction; these AI battles are meant to make Al Mazrah feel lively even when there aren’t any players around.

This report corroborates previous leaks about Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s rumored DMZ mode, which appears to take place in a small portion of Al Mazrah near the small lake at its heart, just off the river that divides the entire map.

Al Mazrah’s POIs are said to include a city to the northeast, several coastal installations such as a harbor and airport, an elevated observatory, and outlying locations such as a quarry and graveyard. Even though we don’t actually know how these places look and all of the specifics are obviously subject to change, just knowing their names helps us visualize the map. There appear to be 18 POIs in total, though the relative scope of Al Mazrah as a battlefield is also unclear.

This year’s Call of Duty has been particularly prone to leaks. We’ve heard about, and even seen, snippets ranging from specific levels to minor features, albeit through footage so scratchy that it almost blinds your eyes. So we’re expecting a few surprises at today’s show, hopefully confirming or debunking the majority of the rumors.
