We finally have a trailer, a ton of screenshots and many more details about the upcoming small map headed to Warzone 2.0. Ashika Island is the first Resurgence map for the battle royale game, and follows in the footsteps of Rebirth Island and Fortune’s Keep.
The new map—watch the trailer above for footage of Ashika Island in action—is Japanese themed and has a ton of cool-looking locations and Points Of Interest, both above and below ground. According to the new Call Of Duty blog post:
Ashika Island, also known as “Isle of the Sea Lion”, is part of a small archipelago located in an undisclosed location, somewhere in the APAC (Asia Pacific) region. Latest missives indicate the isle is being used as hub for the Ultranationalist Konni Group, including the transportation of chemical and biological weapons. Current intel obtained by [[REDACTED]], suggests noxious weaponry is being shipped from a suspected BioLab facility in Al Mazrah.
Originally planned as a resort destination, development on Ashika Island was halted in the mid-1990s due to [[REDACTED]] and the sterling work of [[REDACTED]], but publicly the reasons remain undisclosed. Since this time, travel to and from the island has been heavily restricted.
The blog post includes numerous screenshots of the new island—too many to download and paste here—but I’ll highlight a couple. The Tsuki Castle POI is taken directly from the classic Castle map and it looks gorgeous:
I chuckled audibly when I came across the Shipwreck POI screenshots:
The caption reads: “At the base of the rocky cliffs are the empty shipping containers from the two tankers that have run aground in the vicinity. Local haulers have arranged the containers in a familiar and pleasing pattern….”
This, of course, is Shipment, one of Modern Warfare’s most beloved classic maps. Of course they’ve added three versions of it to the new Call Of Duty since launch!
Here’s the map:
Here are all of the POI locations:
- Tsuki Castle
- Port Ashika
- Town Center
- Oganikku Farms
- Beach Club
- Waterways (Submarine Base)
Each of these POIs include a bunch of smaller locations. For instance, Residential includes a power plant, an apartment building, a water treatment facility and more. The Castle has multiple gardens, a stronghold and a museum.
There are many unnamed buildings and smaller points of interest including a Ferry terminal, sea-walls, an aquarium, towers, observation points, demolition sites and so forth in what appears to be a very detailed, somewhat busy map that should be perfect for intense Resurgence matches.
Resurgence returns on February 15th when Season 2 of Modern Warfare II and Warzone 2.0 launches—finally!
