As announced at the COD Next event, the classic shrinking circle that players are used to in every game of Warzone's battle royale will be receiving a massive change. Now it will see a single, massive safe zone which will then be split into four zones across the map as time goes on.

Once these zones are defined, the gas will begin to split the map apart, forcing each player to make critical decisions about which zone will provide the best chance of survival and victory.

Those individual zones will also get smaller over time, forcing all of the remaining squads into “micro battles” to wrestle temporary control over the zone they have chosen to defend.

As the match progresses, all of the individual zones will gradually merge into one small zone for the final battle between the surviving groups. This will give players a chance to stock up on supplies for the final gunfights of a match as the circles move closer together.

However, the terrain must be a major consideration because it is easy to become trapped behind buildings and mountains as you traverse the massive Al Mazrah's dips and dives.

And needless to say, we're excited to see what exciting and intense gunfights will be the result of this new split circle system.
