Call of Duty: Warzone Details Free-to-Play Battle Royal Systems Before March 10 Launch
Activision released details for Call of Duty: Warzone, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 10.
Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play battle royale shooter. Players can enter a match with up to 150 other players and explore the city of Verdansk across two modes available at launch.

Players can also pick up contracts scatter throughout the map which gives players in-match rewards including new weapons, Cash, and XP. These contracts include instructions to hunt down a specific opponent or dominate a point of interest on a map.
Warzone is built with the same engine for Modern Warfare. Players will be able to play in a new mode called Plunder, where teams drop in and try to collect as much in-match Cash by raiding supply boxes and eliminating opponents. In this mode, each player gets unlimited respawns and their own loadout. The mode also offers various ways to with matches witch don’t always include getting the most kills.
Call of Duty: Warzone supports crossplay across consoles and PC. Content earned from owners of Modern Warfare will transition to the new Warzone game mode. Similarly, all progression earned in Warzone counts towards Modern Warfare progression. n addition, Warzoneshares the same Item Shop and Battle Pass System as Modern Warfare. The Battle Pass system allows players to unlock two free new functional weapons, up to 300 COD points, and calling cards.
To give players a better look at the game, the publisher released a new trailer showing the environment and how players will take on the new mode.
