It looks like the battle royale craze will not be dying down anytime soon, as a new one will soon be released in the form of Call of Duty: Warzone. After adjusting for time zone differences, the game will be available for us starting 11 March 2020.
So what’s new with Call of Duty: Warzone? In addition to the standard battle royale mode, it comes with a new one called Plunder. The new mode has an extra emphasis on collecting in-game money. This is done by either searching the map for loot, or completing in-game contracts, which are available for both modes.
You can also use the money to buy killstreaks, a revive item, or a balloon to safely stash away your cash. That last one, though, is only available in Plunder mode.
Both modes in Call of Duty: Warzone can support up to 150 players at a time. And if you get taken down, the standard battle royale mode gives you a second chance at returning to the game. This is thanks to the addition of a feature called the Gulag. Here, you have to face another player who has also been taken down one-on-one. If you win, you get returned to the main game.
If you’re playing as a team, you could still get back to the game if you lose the Gulag duel. But this will involve your teammates spending money to revive you.
Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play game that also supports crossplay. If you’re getting the game fresh, PCGamesN reports that you’ll need to have between 80-100GB of storage space. If you already have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, then it will come as a 15-22GB update.
