Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 gets a release date and an all-new third-person mode

After tonight’s big Call of Duty blast, we finally have a release date for the much-anticipated Warzone 2.0 — plus plenty of details on what to expect.

Warzone 2.0 is set to release on November 16, about two weeks after Modern Warfare 2 launches on October 28. The pair will share the same engine, a first in the Call of Duty series that should ensure parity and a more consistent feature set – all making this feel like a new dawn for the series. Warzone 2.0 introduces the new desert map of the farm, as well as some of its own twists on the battle royale mode such as the appearance of multiple circuits in certain end-game scenarios. It will also feature a new AI faction, with powerful barricades housing loot for patrolling NPCs, and a modified Gulag system. There will also be a new sandbox mode called DMZ, and while the details remain scant, it really does look like Warzone’s Escape from Tarkov.

Like other popular battle royale games, it will also feature a third person view – something completely new for Warzone 2.0, and an addition that will likely be the subject of some discussion. Third-person playlists will also be available in Modern Warfare 2, going back to the third-person mode that was available in the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in 2009.

The confirmation of the third person mode comes after it emerged earlier that the console versions will finally have FOV options. We’ve also got an insight into how Gunsmith 2.0 works with an improved interface and more customization options..
