Players unlock items within each sector or they can unlock adjacent sectors. Six new operators will be releasing across the season, including Gaz and Zeus. Three are well-known football players: Neymar Jr, Paul Pogba, Leo Messi. The first season also includes a new prestige system, allowing players to prestige five times to a max rank of 250. At the end of Season 01, players can continue ranking up from wherever they ended up.
Warzone 2.0 is also launching November 16. It is a free-to-play battle royale experience set on the new Al Mazrah map. The sequel will include a few new concepts, like multiple closing circles and proximity chat. Players will also be able to join up with other squads. A new interrogation feature will reveal enemy locations. Vehicles also have limited fuel that needs to be filled at gas stations or with gas cans.
