Warzone enters a new era once Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 arrives in December, but which of the many battle royale maps will be in the game? Here’s a breakdown of every playable Warzone map in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1.
December 6 marks the launch of Modern Warfare 3’s first season, bringing new weapons, maps, and the first Battle Pass, but that’s not all.
MW3 Season 1 also kicks off a new chapter for Warzone, bringing all of Modern Warfare 3’s weapons and content over to the battle royale.
You may be wondering which of Warzone’s many maps will be available once the integration takes place so here are all the Warzone maps available in Modern Warfare 3 Season 1.
All Warzone maps after MW3 Season 1 update
There will be a total of three Warzone maps when the Modern Warfare 3 Season 1 update arrives. One of these is the brand-new full-scale battle royale map, Urzikstan, alongside two returning smaller maps designed with Resurgence and other modes in mind.

Urzikstan is the brand-new Warzone map revealed at CoD Next, replacing Al Mazrah as the main battle royale map after MW3 Season 1 drops. It features plenty of new POIs and a fresh Gulag, with plenty of familiar locations for fans to discover.
The devs also confirmed at CoD Next that Fortune’s Keep and the iconic Rebirth Island map will both be returning to Warzone in 2024. These maps will come after Season 1, with Fortune’s Keep arriving first and Rebirth Island dropping after. We’ll keep you updated as and when we know the official date that these maps will return.
It’s unclear at the moment if Al Mazrah has been replaced permanently or if the MW2-era map will make a comeback one day, either in place of Urzikstan or as part of a rotation.
Meanwhile, Vondel and Ashika Island will be familiar to anyone who played Warzone during MW2’s lifecycle. Ashika Island was the first Resurgence map after Warzone 2.0 launched, before the Amsterdam-inspired Vondel arrived back in Season 4.
This means that, unlike when Modern Warfare 2 was released, players will have both battle royale and Resurgence maps playable in Warzone as soon as MW3 Season 1 drops. The community will be hoping this makes for a more varied experience right off the bat.
