Despite numerous leaks that released the game’s map and several other core features, Activision has officially announced the release of their battle royale game, Call of Duty: Warzone. The game will even be released without cost to the players.

Since this game is releasing at a cost of $0.00, Activision will be making their money though in-game transactions. The ‘in-game economy’ will be similar to the ones that games like Fortnite and Apex Legends.
There will be many additional in-game features included. For one, up to 200 people will be able to play in the same match, which doubles the servers of the other two rivaling games. Users of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare are eligible to receive the download, and play it right from their in-game screen.
One feature will be brand new to the game, and genre as a whole. In this battle royale rendition, once players die, they will be forced to fight in a gladiator pit referred to as “Gulag.” From there, players will be given an opportunity to fight in a 1v1 battle that will resurrect the winning fighter.
The game does not have a definite release date as of yet. Call of Duty games also happen to be released on Tuesday, so the release date could be March 10. That way, Activision still has lots of time to clean up its game for any leftover bugs and flaws it might have – although, gamers didn’t seem to mind the ‘early release.’
I can’t handle all of the teasing of a new Call of Duty Battle Royale. I swear if somehow it’s F2P and standalone that I might be running through the streets naked.
I love Blackout, but it’s clear there isn’t anymore support for that coming. Give me something new 😍

Please don’t run through the streets naked, though.
