We are left without a knock on the table. Warzone I had been putting honey on our lips for a long time with that nuclear bomb that would destroy the Map, but he has decided to play very safe and the bittersweet aftertaste is palpable wherever you look.
The arrival of Verdansk 84 and its few novelties are not, by far, what one would expect from a company with infinite resources and a community that, now even more so, has won heaven. Call of Duty c an’t afford to lag behind and right now there are two other battle royales, Fortnite
Call of Duty’s best nuclear explosion is 13 years old
Creating a thread that has been tripping and abandoning, the nuclear bomb reached Warzone in the simplest way possible. An event with zombies and weapons that could well be an additional mode – in fact, it already was – gave way to a cinematic in which the bomb fell on Verdansk to destroy the map completely.
Two notes, to stop and delve into the latter. In the first place, it seems to me that the franchise that occupies the top sales positions year after year -or even the first- makes use of a resource as outdated as straining a video to shape an action like this.
The game that changed everything for the franchise, the first Modern Warfare, boasts of having made us live one of the most spectacular moments in the history of videogames.
A helicopter ride with a nuclear bomb exploding in the background that, even faked as a single player event, would have been more spectacular than what was offered in Warzone.
13 years have passed since that time and, far from getting better as it might seem logical due to how the medium has progressed at a technical and narrative level, we have clearly gotten worse.
“It is that putting a nuclear explosion in a game like this is very complicated”. Look, no. And it stings because it hurts more the more true it is, but Fortnite He has launched a rocket at you, has dressed the map in ice and snow, has put a giant robot to fight against a kaiju, and has set you up on a Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure. All of it live
Much room for improvement
The few times that Fortnite has chosen a video has been to offer a huge map change. Not always satisfactory, eye, that not all the mountain is oregano, but of course it is significant.
A strategy that, on the other hand, has also exploded PUBG with a completely different approach. There the changes may be minimal, but every so often they offer one more reason to come back in the form of new maps.
It is true that everyone can do with their game what they want, it would be missing more, but it is inevitable to have the feeling that the team behind each new Call of Duty
To finish unleashing its full potential, Warzone needs to separate from what they can offer Modern Warfare, Black Ops or whatever comes next. Ok to the winks to try to boost sales when a new installment comes out, but to condition the experience to have other games to be able to complete challenges, and that each study that arrives tries to reach out to take it to its field, it seems to me a tremendous mistake.
If it gives more anger than it should – after all, the game is fabled and the fall of its servers is a good example of the attention it arouses – it is because you know that the possibilities could go much further with a little of mime. Could be a great seamless game.
Warzone It is a free-to-play that could erase the competition from the map with a stroke of the pen if it were seriously proposed, but it does not do it because continuing to approve by the hair by doing the right thing is already profitable. And when it is not like that, well, I am shelving something else, that I would not be the first or the last to go from heaven to hell in the arms of Activision.
