Activision weren’t the best with keeping this news quiet with so many leaks through-out the year of a possible upcoming Battle Royale mode in Call of Duty Modern Warfare. Today it was confirmed that there is indeed a Battle Royale game and it is called Call of Duty Warzone, it’s both free to play and cross-play and it will be out tomorrow! The trailer features below:
Activision has confirmed that it will have 150 players at launch who can all drop into the huge map of Verdansk and try to survive to complete onslaught to become the ultimate champion. Modern Warefare owners can jump in March 10th 8am PDT a few hours earlier with people who don’t own MW joining the battle at 12pm PDT. A description features below from the Activision Blog.
At launch, players can squad up in trios with their friends on Playstation® 4, Battle.net for PC, or Xbox One across two game modes: Battle Royale and Plunder.
In Battle Royale, fight to be the last squad standing while escaping the deadly gas in the swiftly closing circle with up to 150 players.
In Plunder, the race is on to collect the most in-match Cash by looting across the map, taking down enemies to steal their Cash, and completing in-match Contracts.
Warzone takes place in Verdansk, an expansive city with multiple named zones and well over 300 points of interest. Each zone features distinct landmarks like the Gorengard Lumber Yard or the Gora Dam; the zones take place across different environment types like cities and rural areas for unique engagements. Change up your drop location in each match to get a better lay of the land and take advantage of what Verdansk has to offer.
