Activision’s new free Call of Duty Battle Royale game, called Warzone, is officially coming out today for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Warzone takes place across the city of Verdansk which may be a somewhat familiar battleground for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players. This dense and massive map features more than 300 points of interests and a variety of landscapes for different types of engagement.
A mix of areas including the cityscape of downtown Verdansk complete with tall buildings, the more rural Krovnik Farmland, and urban areas with many interiors prime for looting, decorate this expansive map. Players can explore Verdansk on five different vehicles – ATVs, Tactical Rovers, SUVs, Cargo Trucks, or Helicopters. Ride with your squad to your next destination, take out a rival, or drive to escape the closing circle.
Warzone will have two distinct game modes at launch – Battle Royale and Plunder. Battle Royale is the usual last-man-standing game mode, with 150 players in teams of three attempting to take out the opposition in a steadily shrinking play area, this time courtesy of a cloud of deadly gas. Plunder, also playable in three-person squads, is a respawn mode where players race to collect the most Cash which can be found across the map, gained by eliminating opponents or completing contracts, objective-based tasks that reward Cash and other loot.
Warzone is live on 10th March starting at 3pm GMT for owners of the full version of Modern Warfare and available at 7pm GMT to download free, for all players.
