Call of Duty: Warzone’s new Rebirth Island map isn’t quite out yet, but Treyarch is already giving players a preview of what it’s going to look like. The developer has released a comprehensive post on its website, as well as an updated version of the Warzone strategy guide that now includes everything players need to know about the new map.

According to the map’s page on the Warzone atlas, which gives players an in-depth look at the map itself, there are 32 new points of interest on Rebirth Island. There are also dozens of buildings on the smaller map, along with some named areas like Bioweapons Labs, Factory, Headquarters, and Construction Site. It even includes an area called Prison Block with dozens of cells for players to explore at their own risk.

Treyarch’s post also has an in-depth description of the map’s new Gulag system. Just like Verdansk’s Gulag — which also got an update — the Gulag on Rebirth Island is where players are sent after they die in certain Warzone game modes. Once you’re there, you’ll have to fight another opponent in a duel to see which of you gets a second chance at life and battle royale victory.

On Rebirth Island, the new Gulag is set directly under the Prison Block area of the map in an underground holding area. Just like the original Gulag map, this one has two long hallways and a middle segment for players to fight each other in.

Finally, the Rebirth Island atlas also shows off a few tips and tricks for the new map. Along with some location-specific advice that most players will find helpful, there’s also some intriguing information about a yellow door. Apparently, there’s a yellow door somewhere on the map that players can find a secret code to open. While we don’t know what’s behind the door just yet, it certainly is exciting that Treyarch is teasing the map’s Easter eggs before it even comes out.

Rebirth Island will be added to Call of Duty: Warzone as part of the game’s first season. Season 1 begins at 2 a.m. ET on Dec. 16, the same time that it will start for both Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
