Call of Duty: Warzone players are currently fighting for their lives on the zombie-riddled island as the long-awaited nuclear event arrived on Wednesday afternoon in Verdansk. The event condensed all of Warzone down to just one playlist. The game mode it condensed into is titled "Destruction of Verdansk Part 1," and it drops squads of four onto the map with shotguns in their hands. The goal is to survive long enough to exfil and get off the island. If you die, you become a zombie and hunt the other players. The most interesting part of this whole game, however, is the "Part 1" at the end of the playlist, as it implies the existence of a "Part 2."
At the end of the game, when the zombies take over, the island is nuked. That part is expected. But it appears as though there will be a second chapter to this saga. If Part 1 ends with an explosion, what is Part 2? More importantly: when will it arrive. According to an update from the official Twitter account, it seems like the answer is 3PM ET/12PM PT today, April 22nd.
Verdansk has fallen. Updated protocol:
🕑 2P PT: Seek safety from Verdansk on Rebirth Island— Call of Duty 🌑 (@CallofDuty) April 21, 2021
🕘 9P PT: Update your comms (console) and investigate Rebirth Island
🕘 12:00P (4.22) PT: Return tomorrow to Rebirth for updated instructions pic.twitter.com/AbuDyYY8xm
The Call of Duty blog posted about the event just an hour or so before it started, and teased that the exfil could last up to two hours. If that is the case, it could offer some insight into when Part 2 will arrive. After the exfil period, we could see a second Destruction of Verdansk playlist go live, this one offering yet another version of the game.
The island isn't just being destroyed. Something is going to happen to transport players back to a 1980s version of Verdansk, tying Warzone into Black Ops Cold War. There will probably be a second game event that helps aid the story in making this transition. But that seems more like a rebirth than a destruction, so it doesn't quite feel like a second part to this game.
