Return of Resurgence & Debut of Ashika Island
The return of fan-favorite Warzone battle royale mode, Resurgence, is coming back, this time with a brand-new Japanese-themed map called Ashika Island. It’s a bit larger than previous “small maps” (approx. 30% larger, according to the developers) but still features the classic fast-paced redeploy-enabled action fans associate with Resurgence.
Resurgence will be available in a variety of playlists, including Solos, Duos, Trios, and Quads, with frequent playlist updates throughout the season. As a reminder, in this mode, players can redeploy after being eliminated so long as a squadmate is still alive when the countdown hits zero.
New Feature: Restore Honor
One new feature in Resurgence is Restore Honor, where players drop a Dog Tag on death. The Dog Tags can be collected by any player for a small cash reward and a single UAV ping that marks nearby enemies and supply boxes.
New Contract: Search & Seizure
Ashika Island will also have an additional contract release in-season called Search and Seizure. Players must reclaim a stolen vehicle and deliver it to the dropoff point. Completing this contract rewards bonus cash and in-match rewards.
Public Event: Data Heist
During the second circle collapse on Ashika Island, uplink stations will come online around the map. Players can download intel from the stations to get bonus XP, Cash, and a random piece of Tactical Equipment. Squads that can manage to visit two or more uplink stations get increased rewards, including a possible random Killstreak or Advanced UAV.
