Warzone New Map Fortune’s Keep Size and Details
Fortune’s Keep, the latest addition to Warzone’s collection of maps, is the highlight for Season Four. The new map seems very similar to Rebirth Island and many are considering it to be its replacement since Rebirth Island is going for a temporary hiatus.
However, it’s not and it’ll have its own playlist activities that players can join. It’s roughly the same size as Rebirth Island and smaller than Caldera. It’s going to feature the Resurgence ruleset making it a faster-paced game mode.

Among all the discussions, we've seen one question that kept being asked, "How big is Fortune's Keep?"

The main new addition to Warzone season 4 is a new map – Fortune’s Keep. This new map is not a replacement for Rebirth Island and it will have its own playlist activities that players will be able to jump into.
Fortune’s Keep will have a new contract called Black Market Run. Your squad will have to race to a Black Market Buy Station before the timer ends to buy a range of unique items and weapons. There’s also Cash Extraction, which is a mini-event where mercenaries will attempt to extract from the map with cash in hand.
Activision has shared key details about Fortune’s Keep
Activision has shared a brief blog post revealing key details about the new Warzone map- Fortune’s Keep. You can take a look at them below:
- 20 Cannons
- 10 Staircases
- 12 Rooms
- Bell Tower
- 6 Giant Wine Barrels
- Blackbird Hotel
- Gelato Stand
- Smuggler’s Cover
- 8 Ladders
- 8 Huts
- 3 Ziplines
- 11 Boats
The town featured on the map is potentially inspired by colorful Mediterranean villages and the Smuggler’s Cove will be loaded with supplies including Gas Marks to help in a Circle Collapse. It’s like a medieval fortress converted into the mercenary’s headquarters.
