After marketing for the new standalone Call Of Duty Battle Royale mode leaked on the PlayStation Store yesterday, a YouTuber has now posted up 10 whole minutes of gameplay, presumably ahead of embargo. The footage has now been taken down, but it’s mirrored below.
The new game will be free to play and will feature a player count of 150 players, and allows you to play solo/duo/trios. The maps contain favourites such as Terminal, Scrapyard, Overgrown, Broadcast as well as new areas.
You can only loot weapons, with attachments coming from supply drops. There’s two modes, the main Warzone mode and Plunder (which allows respawns). In the way of vehicles there’s ATVs, SUVs, Helicopters and Cargo Trucks.
One of the more interesting features takes place in the Gulag, where you go 1v1 with other players (think Gunfight mode) in order to get back into the game. This happens when you die and it looks like you can only make use of it once to get back into the game before you’re eliminated permaneltly. If team mares are eliminated with you, they’ll be able to spectate the 1v1 and throw rocks at your opponent in order to help you advance.
In terms of release, it looks like it’s coming fairly soon, with PlayStation advertising the new game/mode and the fact that YouTubers have obviously gone hands on.
HERE’S THE FULL LIST OF FEATURES FROM THE REDDIT THREAD:
– Massive map, contains old maps such as Terminal, Scrapyard, Overgrown, Broadcast and some new areas. Chaos said it feels like you’re never in a reskinned/copy pasted area. There are snowy areas.
-Free to play, no MW required but there is crossplay and saved progression.
– Player count of 150 but may possibly increase, solo’s, duo’s and trios.
– Weapon looting is guns only. No attachments, unless from supply drops. Health regeneration looks automatic.
– Two game modes – Main Warzone mode and then Plunder which is a respawn mode (seems to be cash based from the leaks)
-Features a Squad Leader jump-master thing, similar to Apex Legends (Squad leader, and leadership can be passed). You can see the cash of your team mates.
-The map is visually stunning according to Chaos, and when jumping, there is 3D text on top of the locations. There seems like a fair bit of verticality, especially in Downtown areas.
-Equipping armor plate seems almost instant.
-HUD has red dots, unsure if this is past/historic gunfire.
-There is a tactical map which shows the circle timer, Gulag matches etc.
-Vehicles include ATV, SUV, HELI, CARGO TRUCK and TAC ROVER.
-Locations – Dam, Miltary Base, Quarry, Airport, TV Station, Storage Town, Superstore, Boneyard, Train Station, Hospital, Downtown, Stadium, Lumber, Farmland, Prison (Gulag), Park, Port, Promenade East and West, Hills.
-Altitude meter, seems like you drop rapidly. You can cancel parachuting. Flares included when doing so.
– You spawn with a pistol, I counted 4-5 hits to down someone. 50 XP for downing, 500 XP for a kill.
-Two hitmarkers to kill in a downed state.
-Armor is automatic after equipping plates, seems like you can have up to 5. (Triangle to build).
-There are contracts with money, confirming the leaks e.g. collecting three crates.
