CoD: Warzone Says Goodbye To Rebirth Island Map With New Exfiltration Event

A new season of Call of Duty arrives on June 22 with the Season 4: Mercenaries of Fortune update, and Warzone is closing out Season 3 with a special “Exfiltration” event on the Rebirth Island map.

The Exfiltration event is played as trios on Rebirth Island. The event requires players to drop in, locate and grab a radio, and then be the last team holding the radio to exfiltrate from the island. This likely isn’t a mode players will want to keep replaying, but it offers a bit to Warzone’s seasonal narrative. Season 2’s theme was all about reinforcing the island for upcoming threats, while Season 3 included talks of mercenaries planning to attack. Now, players are exfiltrating from Rebirth Island in order to take the fight to the mercenaries on a completely new island.

Basically, Warzone’s storyline over the last few seasons was a lead up to the introduction of the battle royale’s new Fortune’s Keep map with Season 4, and while Rebirth Island won’t be gone forever, this special two-day event gives the map a temporary goodbye to close out Season 3. Activision says the map will become temporarily unavailable for the start of Season 4, but later in the season Warzone will introduce a selection of playlists for Caldera, Fortune’s Keep, and Rebirth Island.

Rebirth Island’s Exfiltration event will be available from now until the Season 4 update goes live on 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET on June 22.

In addition to Fortune’s Keep, Vanguard is also getting new maps for Season 4. The USS Texas 1945 map will arrive in multiplayer, while Zombies is getting a traditional survival map with the addition of Shi No Numa.
