Activision have officially confirmed the existence of Call of Duty: Warzone, a stand-alone Battle Royale mode for Modern Warfare, following a number of high-profile leaks in recent weeks.
Warzone comes with two game modes: the classic Battle Royale and a new mode called Plunder, which is said to be a “race to deposit the most in-game cash.” Cross-platform play will be supported, and progression from Modern Warfare, including Operators, Battle Pass items and weapon unlocks, is carried over, and vice-versa.
It sounds like players will also be able to take on in-game “contracts” that task them with completing specific objectives, such as securing a location or opening a series of supply boxes, for extra rewards, including loot, cash and XP.
There was also confirmation of the Gulag, a previously leaked Battle Royale-only feature that allows eliminated players a chance to re-enter the fight by winning a 1v1 duel with another player who has also been taken out.
Modern Warfare owners will be able to access Warzone directly from the in-game menu, with the new mode coming in as a 15GB – 20GB download, while new players will have a much larger 80GB – 100GB download.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available from 10 March on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
