Following Black Ops 4‘s battle royale mode, Infinity Ward has announced a brand new free-to-play cross-platform battle royale title called Call of Duty: Warzone. Despite being recently leaked, the title has officially been announced, with details that it will support 150 players in the game’s Verdansk map and its two featured modes.
In Battle Royale mode, squads of three can earn rewards by finding loot, eliminating enemies or completing discoverable Contracts located around the map, which can be found by any squad. Contracts reward weapons, Cash, XP, and more to instantly gain an advantage over other squads. Player Bounty can be collected or an area can be held down by a squad to come out as the winner.
“Players will also be able to collect in-match Cash to purchase equipment, Field Upgrades, Killstreaks or Revive Tokens for fallen teammates at Buy Stations located throughout the map,” according to the press release. It also notes that players who fall in battle will have several ways to return to the match, including The Gulag: a 1v1 gunfight against another fallen player where the winner returns to the match.
Plunder is a mode that sees players race to collect as much in-match cash as possible through raiding supply boxes, eliminating opponents, completing contracts or “by controlling key cash deposit locations throughout the map.” Players will receive unlimited respawns, customizable load-outs, previous killstreaks and more as the match goes on.
Players who already own Modern Warfare will have all content already earned including Battle Pass items, Operators, weapons and customization items carried over to Warzone and vice versa.

Call of Duty: Warzone feels so much more like Call of Duty than Blackout did.
More fact paced with no inventory management..the gas closes in fast; auto ammo pick up; smooth gameplay (no FPS drops on PS4 Pro). It just feels like what a Call of Duty BR would be.
