The free-to-play game will launch on March 10, with PC, PS4, and Xbox One getting access first. The other versions will join in shortly after.
At launch, Call of Duty: Warzone will feature two modes – battle royal and plunder. – on a single map, Verdansk. It will support up to 150 players to battle it out. In plunder mode, players aim to finish the match with the most money, be it through finding loot, completing in-game contracts, or eliminating others.
The contracts involve completing specific objectives to earn in-game currency. These funds can then be used at stations to purchase killstreaks, or even a revive.
The biggest change to the genre is the addition of the Gulag. The first time you perish in a match, you will be placed in a prison with other recently deceased players. Come out on top in a one-on-one fight, and you get to rejoin your teammates. Lose and start praying your team can earn enough cash to buy a respawn for you.
Call of Duty: Warzone will also have five different vehicles to navigate the world.
For owners of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, all your battle pass items, weapons, and even skins will carry over to Call of Duty: Warzone. Progress made in the battle royale will also carry over to the main shooeter.
