After months of rumours and speculations, Warzone Season 3 has finally arrived.

Verdansk as we knew it is gone, and the new 80s-themed Verdansk took its place. The update has also introduced three new weapons and a slew of balance changes across all classes.

And while the old Verdansk is gone, the second battle royale map, Rebirth Island, is still there the same as it was back in December 2020, when it was first introduced to the game.

The 40-players map hasn't been as popular as Verdansk, but it still offers a different battle royale experience, with quicker games and more frenetic action and mostly close-quartet combat.

With over 100 million Warzone players, there's surely a quite dedicated base of Rebirth Island players, who prefer this notorious prison island over Verdansk.

And we have great news for those players. Starting from Season 3, you will now be able to set up private matches on Rebirth Island.

The ability to play private matches was added to Warzone back in November 2020, but only for Verdansk.

Almost half a year later, private lobbies were finally added for Rebirth Island as well, and here's how you can play private matches on Rebirth Island.
