Activision has finally unveiled its roadmap for Call of Duty: Vanguard Zombies Season 2. This comes merely days after the developers revealed the feature-rich seasonal content update headed to Warzone, complete with new POIs, weapons, map changes, and more!

The undead assault continues in Season 2 as new Dark Aether entities, both friend and foe, enter the mortal world and make their presence known. Accordingly, Vanguard Zombies players must fend off a new three-faced threat, Zaballa The Deceiver, but will be aided by newcomer Vercanna The Last.

Here's everything we know about the new deity, including her "Healing Aura" Artifact Power and the new "Artifact Ward" Covenant, as indicated in the Call of Duty official blog post.

Who is Vercanna the Last in Vanguard Zombies Season 2?

Vanguard Zombies will feature a new ally, Vercanna The Last, who will provide players with the strength they need to conquer the slew of undead in the new front of Terra Maledicta. Vercanna is the latest Dark Aether entity to lend her powers to the battle against Von List and Kortifex.

"A newcomer to our world, Vercanna seeks revenge on Kortifex for wiping out her entire clan. She is the Last of her kind and joins Krafft's allies at a crucial moment in the war on the undead," the blog post reads.

What does the Healing Aura Artifact Power do?

Vercanna The Last also has a unique healing Artifact Power called "Healing Aura." Activating the ability will send light beams onto all allied Operators, instantly restoring them to full health. Upgrading the Artifact Power's tier will unlock additional perks.
