First, the Activision confirmed yesterday (09/03) that its new Battle Royale of Call of Duty: Warzone will arrive TODAY! The game will arrive at 12:00 for those who already have CoD Modern Warfare, and at 16:00 in the morning for everyone.
The world of Call of Duty: Warzone
Now at launch, players can get together in trio with their friends on Playstation® 4, Battle.net for PC or Xbox One in two game modes: Battle Royale and Plunder.
No Battle Royale, fight to be the last standing squad while escaping deadly gas in the fast closing circle with up to 150 players.
In Plunder, the race begins to collect the most money in play, looting the map, taking down enemies to steal your money and completing in-game contracts.
Finally, Warzone takes place in Verdansk, an expansive city with several named zones and more than 300 points of interest. Each zone has different landmarks, such as the Gorengard Lumber Yard or the Gora Dam; Therefore, zones occur in different types of environment, such as cities and rural areas, for exclusive commitments. Change your drop location for each match to get a better terrain configuration and take advantage of what Verdansk has to offer.
Do you need to escape the gas in the closing circle or reach another zone? Take a vehicle.
So, if you need to get anywhere quickly in Warzone, the best method is a vehicle. There are five vehicles, all with varying levels of protection, speed, seating and off-road capability. Each vehicle has a health meter and when it reaches zero, the vehicle explodes and goes up in flames. It goes without saying that, if your vehicle's health is running out, save before the impending explosion.
Anyway, here is an overview of the five types of vehicles that are populated worldwide on Warzone:
- ATV - two seater, provides minimal protection, good off-road, fast.
- Tactical Rover - four seats, provides minimal protection, solidly fast, solid off-road.
- SUV - four seats, offers good protection, medium speed, not ideal for off-road.
- Cargo Truck - keeps the squad more equipment, excellent protection, not for off-road, slower.
- Helicopter - four seats, decent cover, flies.
The mechanics of Call of Duty: Warzone
Warzone features some unique mechanics that keep each game interesting and offer several strategies to try a new experience each time you enter.
Here is a list of some of the new and revolutionary mechanics that players will encounter in a Warzone match:
The Gulag (Battle Royale only)
After your first elimination, you will be taken as a “War Zone Prisoner” and played in the Gulag. There you will await your fate and watch other prisoners fight to the death. When your turn is over, you will enter the Gulag and face a single opponent in a 1 × 1 to earn the final reward - redeployment. Win at Gulag and receive a new redistribution in Verdansk. Lose and wait for your squad to complete Contracts and earn enough money in the game to resurrect you.
Contracts are goal-oriented tasks that players can find and activate in Verdansk. A squad can activate one Contract at a time and complete it, it rewards you with cash and other loot items. There are several types of contracts, including disposal contracts, in which it is necessary to find and open a series of supply boxes and reconnaissance contacts, in which it is necessary to protect a location, similar to the Call of Duty mode of domination. In addition to in-game money, contracts can offer special rewards, such as the ability to see the next circle collapse before it starts to close.
In Battle Royale, where collecting in-game money is not the goal, the money can be used to purchase beneficial items at purchasing stations. Then, denoted on Tac-Map with a shopping cart icon, go to Buy Station to spend your money on the game. For varying prices, you can buy Killstreaks, redeploy tokens to bring back fallen teammates, self-healing kits, and more.
In Plunder mode, Purchase Stations keep all of these items to help you gain an advantage over other teams, in addition to an exclusive item in the game mode - the Cash Deposit Balloon. Do you want to safely deposit your money in the game, away from the threat of enemy teams trying to kill and steal? Get a Cash Deposit Ballon, a portable field upgrade that allows you to deposit money anywhere.
Call of Duty: Warzone - A game for everyone
Anyway, Call of Duty: Warzone shares the crossplay and unified progression of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. But, for players who already have the full version of Modern Warfare, all content already won, including Battle Pass items, Operators, weapons and customization items will be transferred to Warzone, and all progression achieved in Warzone will be counted in general progression of Modern Warfare. However, for players who do not have the full version of Modern Warfare, all progress and items they have earned in Warzone will be rewarded between Multiplayer and Special Ops modes in Modern Warfare, should they wish to purchase it.
Finally, remembering that it is not necessary to have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to play Warzone.
