After months of leaks and rumours, Activision have finally officially announced Call of Duty: Warzone, a free to play, standalone battle royale title. The game, in spite of being a standalone release, is also part of the Modern Warfare package, with those who have the 2019 shooter automatically unlocking Warzone as soon as it launches and being able to access it through Modern Warfare.
Activision have also confirmed that the two games will share unified progression, as the leaks had been mentioning for a while now. This means that the Battle Pass in Call of Duty: Warzone is the same as the one being used in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. While Activision haven’t yet given any explicit details on how the free to play release will be monetized, the fact that it shares a Battle Pass with Modern Warfare should provide some clues about that.
Call of Duty: Warzone will come with multiple modes and allow up to 150 players in a single match. It launches tomorrow for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Stay tuned for more coverage on the game.
