Two years after the original Call of Duty war zone dropped into the Battle Royale Arena its sequel Warzone 2.0 has Arrived with a new map and some enticing New game modes or at least it would Offer those things if Network and server Issues weren't preventing me from Playing a clean full match since its Launch on Wednesday that could just be The typical release window woes and I'll Be holding off on my full scored review Until things have had a chance to settle And I've played more anyone looking to Dive in over the weekend should Definitely be prepared for a bumpy Landing Warzone 2.0 is still a battle royale at Its Center bringing back a lot of the First game's mechanics and base features While introducing a few tweaks of its Own like having two or three smaller Circles that eventually converge into One it's not familiar though as the Brand new all-maser map will nicely Incorporate some of the multiplayer Stages from Modern Warfare 2 and the new DMZ mode that takes place on it provides A welcome change of pace from warzone's Usual last person standing structure but While these additions are intriguing to Me I've only been able to play a handful Of matches on PC where the performance Was what I would describe as almost Decent and even then I'd face a lot of
Microstarters and latency issues that Kept Wars on 2.0 from feeling smooth Some people are reportedly having fewer Problems than others but my game would Randomly Spike to 999 millisecond Latency and glue my feet to the ground For a minute so I was unable to move Sometimes making survival during fights Near impossible someone surprisingly DMZ Was the only game mode I could play Consistently without having its Connection issues but even that hood Laid C spikes during matches DMZ is the New loot and extract sandbox mode no Doubt inspired by the success of games Like escape from tarkov and it's really Fun and refreshing to play actually Between Battle Royale matches being able To fight big groups of NPCs and Infiltrate strongholds with my teammate While also keeping an eye on potential Enemy players running towards us was Pretty exciting it kept me on my toes in A different way from the usual Battle Royale mode and made me want to jump Back into the almost Raw map to get to Her Loot and keys to unlock strongholds Again and again that appeal could Partially be because the Battle Royale Mode itself is currently the most Frustrating one to try and play matches Contain the same whopping cap of up to 150 players total in each mode solos Duos trios or quads however a lot of the
Time my lobbies didn't feel off enough To launch so people would get impatient And leave before they did that meant Most of my time trying to play about a Rail match became a never-ending cycle Of queuing and re-queuing to try to find A server that would actually fire When I could enter a match I was at Least able to get a feel for how the Mode plays it's largely a lot of the Same from the original but that was Already a really fun Battle Royale with Solid looting and shooting mechanics That only improved over time one Interesting new addition here is that You can actually recruit enemy players To your team in a squad-based Lobby if You end up losing a teammate at any Point this is a clever way to give Weekend teams our solo stragglers a Fighting chance and keep more people Invested in a match for longer it's also Just fun to make friends in a battle Royale which is a bit unexpected in such A Cutthroat format the unhinged trios Mode even lets you invite up to six People to be under team mid match living Up to its unhinged descriptor and the Chaos that it creates I'm still early in My time with it but so far Warzone 2.0 Seems like a fun evolution of its Predecessor whenever I'm able to get Into a decently stable server and Actually play something close to a full
Match I already feel the pull of the new DMZ Mode in particular but I just haven't Been able to play enough yet to find out If that feeling will last I have had More disconnects and latency issues than Any actual game time this release and Stability is still persisting as we head Into the weekend hopefully worse when 2.0 servers and decent issues can be Resolved soon so I can you know actually Play more of it and I'll be back with my Final score review in the next week or Two but in the meantime for more Information on Warzone 2 and any tips And tricks be sure to stay right here at IGN Foreign
