Call of Duty: Warzone Season 1 release time – here’s when Caldera opens


A new season 1 of Call of Duty: Warzone is about to begin, and this time it’s a big one. Verdansk’s bleak industrial foothills give way to the vibrant volcanic island of Caldera, a WWII-themed Battle Royale game map to match this year’s Call of Duty: Vanguard. This is when you can play on Caldera.

First off, you’ll want to know when you can preload the update. It starts tonight, December 7 at 9 p.m. PT, which translates to December 8 at 12 p.m. ET / 5 a.m. GMT. This is also when the Warzone servers will go offline to begin the switch to the new Season 1 and Caldera map.

On December 8, players with Call of Duty: Vanguard will be able to start playing Warzone on Caldera at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. GMT. These players will have exclusive access to the map for 24 hours, although anyone will still be able to play on the Rebirth Island map for “mini” battle royale action.

Here is the full detail of the Season 1 launch week, thanks to the official Call of Duty Twitter feed:

Warzone players who don’t own Vanguard will be able to start playing on Caldera and working on Season 1 content on December 9, starting at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. GMT.

Activision Blizzard is facing a lawsuit filed in July by the state of California (since extended to quality assurance and customer service contractors) alleging years of discrimination and harassment. Since then, CEO Bobby Kotick has called the company’s initial response “deaf,” employees have staged a walkout, Blizzard Chairman J Allen Brack has left and the ABK Workers Alliance has demanded a change in the business. The trial is ongoing; follow the latest developments here.

In September, a US federal government agency opened an investigation into Activision Blizzard’s response to complaints of sexual misconduct and discrimination by its employees, in which Kotick was reportedly subpoenaed. The company is also the subject of a separate unfair labor practice lawsuit alleging “worker intimidation and denunciation of unions” filed by a workers’ union, also in September. In another separate development, Activision Blizzard reached an agreement with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission “to resolve complaints and further strengthen policies and programs to prevent harassment and discrimination. “. In a subsequent letter to employees, the company announced the end of forced arbitration, a $ 250 million initiative to improve diversity and a significant pay cut for Kotick.

A new report released in November now alleges that Bobby Kotick knew about it and removed the reports of sexual misconduct. Kotick responded with an official statement saying the Wall Street Journal article “portrays an inaccurate and misleading view of our company, of me personally, and of my leaders.” In response, the Activision Blizzard board declared he “remains confident” in Kotick’s leadership.
