Call of Duty fans will soon be able to download the Warzone Battle Royale mode.
Modern Warfare’s very own Battle Royale mode will be available to download on Tuesday, March 10. An official trailer is expected to launch later today (March 9).
But ahead of the official Warzone trailer, one fan has uploaded leaked footage of the Battle Royale mode in action.
As you can see from the video below, the Warzone map features points of interest such as the Airport, TV Station, Military Station and the Quarry.
Confirming earlier leaks, other points of interest include the Port, Prison, Train Station and Boneyard.
The full map, which also features areas such as the Stadium, Superstore and Farmland, can be seen further down the page.
As previously reported, Warzone will feature cross-platform support, meaning PS4, Xbox One and PC players can all compete against each other.
The game mode supports 150 players at launch, although reports suggest it will be extended to 200 further down the line.
Fans can play solo, or as part of a duo and trio. As you can see from the video below, the rumoured ping system also makes an appearance.
Popularised by Apex Legends, the ping system gives teams an easier and more efficient means of converging on a target.
The video also gives players a look at some of the classic maps integrated into the island.
Elsewhere, players will be able to earn cash to spend on various items and air drops.
This include tactical redeploy, which can get your team out of a tight spot and back into the action.
But perhaps most exciting of all is that Warzone is said to be free-to-play, and will launch as its own separate client.
This also ties in to previous suggestions that you can download Warzone even if you don’t already own Modern Warfare.
Considering the success of games like Fortnite and Apex Legends, a free-to-play Battle Royale experience would certainly make sense for Activision. It also all but guarantees the release of a Battle Pass at some point in the future.
There’s a good chance the leaked gameplay video will be taken offline ahead of launch, but thankfully there’s not long to wait before the mode makes its debut in full.
2020 is shaping up to be a pretty good year for Call of Duty fans, especially with rumours suggesting Modern Warfare 2 will be remastered later this year.
That’s on top of the traditional end of year release, which could also come to PS5 and Xbox Series X – assuming the consoles aren’t delayed due to Coronavirus.
