After a massive leak yesterday, Activision has confirmed that Call Of Duty: Warzone will launch tomorrow as a free to play expansion (if you own Modern Warfare) or standalone title. For those that own teh game, the mode will replace the ‘Classified’ panel in your game and will require a 18-22gb update. If you’re downloading the standalone Warzone experience, you’re looking at 83-101gb download.
It’s launching at 8am AEDT on the 11th with two modes (Battle Royale and Plunder) which you’ll be able to play in Trios with 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.
As we wrote about yesterday, in Battle Royale mode, dying will take you to the Gulag. Upon your first elimination, you will be taken as a “Prisoner of Warzone” and thrown into the Gulag. There you will await your fate and watch other prisoners fight to the death. When your turn is up, you’ll enter the Gulag and face-off against a single opponent in a 1v1 to earn the ultimate reward – redeployment. Win in the Gulag and earn redeployment back into Verdansk. Lose and hope that your squad completes Contracts and earns enough in-match Cash to redploy you.
It’s definitely an exciting time for Call Of Duty and due to the fact that this is free, this will definitely be a massive hit with gamers across the globe.
