Call of Duty: Warzone battle royale on PC

The newest battle royale in the Call of Duty series, Call of Duty: Warzone, is now live for every player. If you own Modern Warfare, then the game was made available earlier today after an 18-20 GB update. If you don’t own Modern Warfare, then you’ll need to download Warzone separately. This, of course, comes with a beefier download, being 80-100 GB. Though that seems extreme, Activision has made Warzone free to play and cross-platform, so there’s a lot to look forward to once you complete the download.

Warzone available to play at long last

After months of speculation, players can finally get their hands on the newest battle royale in Call of Duty. Following last year’s hit with Blackout, many are looking forward to what Infinity Ward has to offer the genre.

However, Warzone differs from Blackout with the fact that it’s free for everyone and you don’t need to purchase a $60 game to gain access. It also seems like the developers of Warzone have improved upon many of Treyarch’s errors with Blackout.

For one, the map is much larger and the battle royale mode can hold up to 150 players. Warzone also comes with an additional mode, Plunder, which is more of a party game mode. The new standalone title also includes many new features, such as the Gulag 1v1 Pit and the in-game currency, Cash.

Players will certainly have their hands full trying to experience all Warzone has to offer. The best part about that, however, is that you can squad up with your friends on different systems. All you need to do is add them by their Activision ID and you’re all set. A lot of the fuss has been removed here.

We’ll have tons of Warzone content coming in the next few days, so make sure to stay tuned to Daily Esports.
