Activision Blizzard is finally launching the highly-awaited Call of Duty: Warzone, a free battle royale mode of the game, today, on March 10th. The title is set to go live on platforms such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
The announcement has been received with excitement because of the numerous slip-ups that took place throughout the game’s development. The announcement of the launch was made via Twitter.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s sizes and time zones at which it goes live have also been announced by the gaming studio. The report says that the game is set to launch at 8 a.m. PDT, and for new players, it will be available starting with 12 p.m. PDT.
The download size for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare users are about 15 to 22 GB, and for those who do not have the Modern Warfare version of the game, the size will request about 80 to 100 GB. If you’re among those who do not have the regular mode installed, make sure you’re connected to a steady Wi-Fi network in order for the build to download without issues.
According to new details from Activision, Warzone will offer an amazing gaming experience in two separate modes: Plunder and Battle Royale. Unlike other Battle Royale titles, these new modes allow players to form teams of three. This suggests that the game doesn’t support the Duo mode, neither the Solo mode, which will actually disappoint many fans.
The Verdansk Map New Features
Moreover, about 150 players will be able to get into the extensive world of Verdansk. The map is familiar to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players, as it is massive and has 300 points of interest.
The vehicles players can use in this world includes a helicopter, but also classic ones, such as an ATV, rover, SUV, and cargo truck. Warzone will support the maximum in-game players, while Fortnite has a limit of 100, and Apex Legends only allows 60.
One of the main features of the map is a 1-vs-1 respawn mechanic dubbed Gulag, which enables the players to get redeployed even after they die. Elimination usually transforms you into a ‘Prisoner of Warzone,’ but in Gulag, you get the chance to fight your rival in 1-vs-1 combat.
