Call Of Duty Warzone Gets Next-Gen Texture Pack

A new 7GB texture pack for Call of Duty Warzone and Black Ops Cold War has been released by Activision for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The pack is recommended for displays of 1440p and above, so base last-gen consoles will not be able to leverage it.

As pointed out by VGC, this is the fifth texture pack that has been released for Warzone, with previous ones targeted towards weapons and character models. Needless to say that this pack will increase the game’s already huge file size.

While Warzone texture packs have been coming in pretty regularly, so have the game’s ridiculous number of bugs. Some of them have been funny, like the murder door found in Karst Salt Mine which would kill anyone that even touched it. Others have unfortunately been game breaking, like bounty contract targets appearing in the Gulag, making it impossible to complete.

One of the biggest recent bugs however was something that broke the game’s competitive format. Players could glitch behind walls and sometimes even below the map, into otherwise inaccessible areas. From there they could not only stay hidden from enemies, but also shoot them without being seen. They were essentially inside an impenetrable force shield which also made them invisible. Activision has been working on these issues however, and the reported cases have dropped.

Yesterday we reported about prominent Call of Duty and Battlefield leaker, Tom Henderson, saying that Call of Duty Vanguard will allegedly be like “Black Ops Cold War 2.0”. They say that it will release in 2021 and that Warzone will receive a WW2 map as a crossover. This map will be larger than Verdansk, and make room for additional vehicles and travel options rather than more players.

Speaking of looking like something else, a jury has ruled against pro wrestler Booker T., who filed a suit against Activision in 2019, claiming that the character of David “Prophet” Wilkes was a copy of his GI Bro persona. The wrestler’s lawyer used a poster to make side-by-side comparisons between the hairstyle, outfit, facial expression, and even the persona’s attitude. However, the jury found that the similarities were not enough to count as copyright infringement.
