Here's A Look At Call Of Duty: Warzone's Battle Royale Map
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is finally adding the long-rumored Warzone battle royale, and you can get an eagle-eyed view of the map.
Warzone rolled out into Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and as a standalone free-to-play battle royale game today--the new mode includes two game types, Plunder and Battle Royale. Both Plunder and Battle Royale take place on a massive-looking map called Verdansk.
The map (embedded below) is a large area, with mountainous regions in the north and a body of water in the south. It's pocketed with several landmarks, including the Atlas Superstore, a stadium, lumber yard, quarry, and racing track. A dotted line appears to show the playable area, which in battle royale fashion will shrink as the match proceeds. Before you drop-in, you'll actually be able to see location names hovering over the map, which is a nice touch.
Warzone is free-to-play, so you can jump in and join the battle royale even if you don't own the main Modern Warfare game. It supports up to 150 players. There are other benefits to being in the Modern Warfare player pool than just getting access to it early--non-owners have a huge download size to deal with. New players will need to download an 80-100GB download, while Modern Warfare players can get the mode with a 15-22GB one.
Warzone mode is available to download for all players now. Warzone's Battle Royale released after weeks of leaks that suggested lots of now-confirmed details, including the gulag to fight your way back into contention if you die during the match. Check out screenshots of the new mode to get an even better idea of what's in store.
