Call of Duty Warzone battle royale officially announced

The Call of Duty Warzone battle royale mode has finally been announced by Activision and Infinity Ward ahead of its release tomorrow.

Available in Australia from 6.00 am AEDT on 11 March, Warzone is a free-to-play 150-player battle royale… as YouTuber Chaos accidentally leaked yesterday night. In fact, everything from that leak was accurate, including the Gulag, a 1v1 space in which a player can fight for the right to return to the battle royale match proper.

“Explore Verdansk, bring home the money in Plunder, or fight until no one else stands in your way in Battle Royale,” Activision said in a trailer detailing the mode (below).

Call of Duty Modern Warfare is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4. Warzone can be downloaded as a standalone experience if you don’t have Modern Warfare.
