Sledgehammer Games has disabled the Secrets of the Pacific event in Call of Duty: Vanguard – which gives players details on Warzone Pacific's new map Caldera – due to "widespread crashing issues."
Secrets of the Pacific is a crossover event between Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone, and it features challenges that reveal more about Caldera and its points of interest when completed. While Warzone doesn't seem to be impacted, Vanguard players have been reporting that it is causing widespread crashing.
Sledgehammer announced that the Secrets of Pacific Event would be disabled while it works to "squash this bug." Despite giving no timetable for its return, it did promise that any progress already earned in the event will not be lost and players will be able to continue where they left off as soon as the problem is resolved.
This event, and many more, are all leading to the launch of Season 1 of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific's Caldera map on December 8, 2021. Those who own Vanguard will get to try the new map 24 hours early before it is available to all Warzone players on December 9.
Even though Verdansk '84 is going away, Caldera looks to bring a breath of fresh air to Warzone with picturesque beaches and mountains that will give players some new scenery to enjoy while working to be the last one standing.
Alongside Season 1 of Call of Duty: Vanguard and Warzone Pacific's Caldera map, Activision is also gearing up to release Ricochet, its own Anti-Cheat initiative developed specifically for Call of Duty. This new "multi-faceted approach" is designed to combat cheating using kernel-level monitors and will be required to play Call of Duty: Warzone on PC.
