Perhaps DMZ will have to compete with more demanding formats than the classic Battle Royale. Maybe some players had more hardcore hoped in the shooter. Or does everything turn out differently than expected?
Anyway, so far players have been rather moderately impressed with what they’ve seen and heard of the new Warzone 2 DMZ mode. You can see it for yourself in the DMZ gameplay overview.
Also for Dimi, the most important questions remain unanswered:
CoD Modern Warfare 2 – DMZ
The main question remains open
No competition for Tarkov and Co.?
Frankly, I also drew the comparison with Escape from Tarkov and Hunt Showdown. After all, classification is my job and the parallels are clear. Both are raid shooters, both are high risk, if you want to survive you have to leave the map alive and so on.
But perhaps the comparisons have helped some players to create false expectations. Now DMZ is being criticized for not being on Tarkov and Co. at all. seems. However, the criticism does not only refer to this, that would be too short-sighted.
In between you read time and again that DMZ looks like a copy of Warzone without much effort. It is read that the day-bright Al-Mazrah map lacks the atmosphere for a good extraction shooter. Reddit tried a classic meme to poke fun at a lack of (previously known) content:

But even experts who could play themselves have several question marks in their eyes. For example, streamer Jgod, who still doesn’t know why you should play DMZ in the first place. So far this has not been really well explained by the developers.

Most questions don’t go unanswered for too long. DMZ comes with the release of Warzone 2 on November 16, 2022 and is also free to play.
