Where we dropping? #Warzone #FreeCallofDuty
Warzone will drop 150 players into one environment to play one of two modes: Plunder and Battle Royale. In Plunder, you’ll have to collect the most cash by looting items on the map, stealing your enemies’ money, and/or completing Contracts in-game. Battle Royale is exactly the mode you think it is, but the shrinking “circle” will be in the form of encroaching gas. Warzone will support cross platform play and progression, allowing you to form a squad of three across PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The most interesting aspect of Warzone is the 1v1 respawn mechanic called Gulag, where you’re taken as a ‘Prisoner of Warzone’ after your first elimination. IN the Gulage, you’ll get a chance to redeploy by defeating an opponent in a 1v1 battle. If any of your teammates fell by the wayside, they’ll be on the balcony during the Gulag battle, witnessing your fight to return. If you fail to win in the Gulag, you can be redeployed if your teammates have completed enough in-game Contracts or earned enough cash to respawn you.
