'Call Of Duty: Warzone' Developer Has 'Tons' Planned For The Battle Royale
Call Of Duty: Warzone has been live for less than a day, but Activision has already promised that there are big plans in store for the recently released battle royale. According to the publisher, the teams at Infinity Ward and Raven Software have 'tons' of post-launch content ideas for the free-to-play Call Of Duty experience, so get settled in - Warzone is here for the long haul.
The Modern Warfare spinoff was released to the public as a standalone game last night, after months of rumours. Warzone has handful of cool features and modes at present, including a standard battle royale mode that supports 150 players across a massive map. There's also a new mode called Plunder, which is described by Activision as a race to collect the most in-match Cash. Players can do this by looting, killing enemies, and taking in-match Contracts.
There's plenty to get stuck into right now then, but I'm sure we're all glad to learn there's more to come. While it couldn't get into specifics just yet, Activision assured fans in a press release that there are extensive plans for this "new era" of Call Of Duty, including live events, content, and more.
"Warzone is more than a new era for Call of Duty, it's a game-changer for players and fans," the publisher said. "We're delivering two incredible modes of play within this massive world that take the experience to a new level. The teams at Infinity Ward and Raven Software have created an amazing, free-to-play experience that's accessible to all to jump in right away and have a blast. There's a ton of content plans and live events to come that will continue to keep fans guessing and ready to experience new thrills."

At the moment Call Of Duty: Warzone's in-game content and Battle Pass lines up with Modern Warfare's, but as the game continues to grow there's clearly a chance it'll go off in its own direction. As a free-to-play experience, Warzone could even be uniquely positioned to tease and market Activision's future Call Of Duty games. Just imagine seeing hints for rumoured games like Black Ops 5 or Modern Warfare 2 Remastered hidden in the game's map.
In terms of new content and live events, I'd also assume that we'll eventually get solos and duos modes to complement the standard trio squads, as well as a few other nice surprises. I'd put good money on there being some kind of zombie-themed event in October, but we'll have to wait and see.
For now though, let's just enjoy what we have: a massive, sprawling free-to-play Call Of Duty battle royale that's proving impossible to put down.
