The imminent integration between Modern Warfare 3 and Warzone is coming on December 6, meaning all of the game's weapons will be available in the Battle Royale.

While the prospect of using the Striker and Holger 556 in BR is exciting, nothing has fans on the edge of their seat more than the new Urzikstan map.

This fresh and urban landscape is looking to replicate the magic that Verdansk brought to the table all those years ago. Well, a new trailer has dropped showcasing Urzikstan in all its glory, and it's safe to say it looks amazing.

As showcased by the popular Call of Duty account CharlieINTEL, the trailer presents a bunch of the POIs players can expect to explore and loot after December 6.

With huge cranes for sniper fans, there are also enclosed urban streets, as well as the iconic Gulag. All of it means Urzikstan is going to be an exciting landscape to traverse.

If that wasn't enough, the map is bringing enhanced movement that is going to take the gameplay to the next level. Excitement is at an all-time high after the trailer, with some competitors getting on the hype train and saying it looks "better than Verdansk."

Is Urzikstan completely replacing Al Mazrah in Warzone?

Yes, Urzikstan will completely replace Al Mazrah as the main battle royale map for Warzone, meaning it will no longer be available.

If you still want to play Al Mazrah, you'll have to load up DMZ on Modern Warfare 2, but it's worth noting the devs have announced that the mode will no longer be supported.

This is an exciting new chapter for Warzone, the question is, will Urzikstan be able to live up to expectations and impress the community in Season 1?
