COD Warzone: What Are the New Features Of The New Map Called Urzikstan in Warzone?

 

Call Of Duty Warzone since its launch in 2020 has had maps that are supported having 150 players in each game. But the new map Urzikstan has decided to reduce that amount to 100 players. This will make it similar to other battle royal games such as Fortnite as well as BGMI/PUBG. A common reason for this could be the higher number of active players required. If there aren’t 150 active players in a game, there is a very high chance for there being bots present in the match. This has also been seen in other battle royal games as well, mainly in BGMI in India. Thus by having a smaller amount of players in one round, there will low chances of there being bots.

 

Raven Software the developers of Call Of Duty Warzone stated the following concerning the new map and the changes:

 

“This morning we announced that the player count for #Warzone Battle Royale is 100 players. Our top priority is creating an optimal and fun experience for all of our players based on critical metrics.

These metrics include time-to-action, the map size of Urzikstan, new circle timings and sizes, total match time (20 minutes), red dots, contracts, and various new & existing second chance mechanics.

We believe we’ve found the right balance to offer multiple phases starting with fair infil & looting, followed by healthy mid-game engagements, and an end game climax where the best player(s) leave with the win.

As always, we will continue to monitor community sentiment and internal data closely, making adjustments as needed over time.

What really matters is that you drop in on Wednesday and experience it for yourself! 🪂

See you in Urzikstan!”
