Unveiling of Ashika Island Map in Call of Duty: Warzone 2
Call of Duty: Warzone 2 has announced that the Ashika Island map will be added to the battle royale game on February 15 as part of its Season 2 update. Al Mazrah was the map that was included in the original launch of Warzone 2, leaving those who liked the smaller-scale Rebirth Island map of Warzone 1 unhappy. Nevertheless, soon fans of the smaller-scale battle royale will be able to try out the Ashika Island in Warzone 2.
For a while, Activision has been foreshadowing the incorporation of a tiny map to Warzone 2. Many fans preferred Rebirth Island in the original Call of Duty: Warzone to the argumentative Caldera map. Now that Ashika Island is slated to be released on February 15th, it is yet to be determined how Call of Duty: Warzone 2 players will respond to it. Although, based on first impressions, it appears to be a promising addition.
The upcoming Ashika Island map for Call of Duty: Warzone 2 will feature seven distinct POIs: Oganikku Farms, Residential, Town Center, Tsuki Castle, Shipwreck, Beach Club, and Port Ashika. Fans of the Call of Duty series may recognize certain locations, such as Tsuki Castle, which is inspired by the map Castle from Call of Duty: World at War. It’s yet to be seen if Castle will be included in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.
When Season 2 of Call of Duty: Warzone 2 kicks off on February 15, it will bring with it the much anticipated Ashika Island map. But that’s not all that fans can expect from the update. Bug fixes and adjustments based on player feedback are also expected to be included in the patch. Though the full list of changes has yet to be revealed, it’s sure to be an exciting day for Call of Duty enthusiasts.
For those Call of Duty: Warzone 2 players seeking something different from Al Mazrah or searching for a map that provides a more intimate battle experience, Ashika Island may be the answer. Recent surveys have indicated that Call of Duty: Warzone 2 may bring back classic warzone maps, such as Verdansk and its variants, Blackout from Black Ops 4, and even the contentious Caldera map. For now, Call of Duty fans will have to wait until February 15 to see if Ashika Island is included in Warzone 2.
Gamers can now get their hands on Call of Duty: Warzone 2, which is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
