Call Of Duty: Warzone Nuke Event UK Time, New Map And Season 3 Update Latest

Following rumours stretching back almost a year, the arrival of a nuke in Warzone's Verdansk is imminent - and you do not want to miss it.

Call of Duty players have been expecting the nuke to come crashing down on the iconic city and bring with it a new map to play on for some time now, with multiple in-game warnings over recent weeks.

And while past speculation of when the nuke would be coming never seemed to pan out, it's looking a whole lot like this really is the moment.

Activision has long been teasing some kind of nuclear explosion and more than a year later, the ongoing tease has already gone on for far too long.

But finally, a bombastic Fortnite-style event is poised to totally wreak havoc on Verdansk very, very soon.

Will it turn the city into a nuclear wasteland for future Warzone matches? Or will players have to migrate over to a new map entirely?

Here, LADbible takes a look at everything you need to know ahead of the nuke event...

What time will the nuke event happen in Warzone?

The long-awaited Warzone nuke event will take place on Wednesday, April 21 and will go live at the following times:

  • UK: 8pm (BST)
  • West Europe: 9pm (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 3pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US: 12pm (PDT)

What exactly will happen?

To participate, players should log in right before the event starts.

Another hurdle to be mindful of is updates, and players should make sure their Warzone is updated before logging on.

Around five to ten minutes before should be enough time to get inside Warzone and see the event live.

Like previous events, there should be a playlist that players can join and see the nuke destroy Verdansk.

As for what to expect, Activision haven't said much other than that "Armistice Central Command will be communicating directly to all our operators with further instructions" at said hours listed above.

Will there be a new map?

While a new map hasn't been officially confirmed, we can be almost certain that the nuke event will pave the way for an overhauled Verdansk map, with leaks stating it will be set in the 1980s.

It's been assumed for a while that the new map would release this April and, with 'the end' scheduled for Wednesday, this is surely when we'll see Warzone shift into the Cold War era.

A recent leak, quickly taken down by Activision, shows the new map, featuring an under-construction stadium, an aqueduct, an underground mine shaft, and a huge radar array - similar to the one at the end of Black Ops Cold War's campaign.

Make of that what you will...
