Warzone’ takes on ‘Fortnite’ and battle royale genre

Call of Duty is officially launching its battle royale offensive Tuesday.

A new free game, Warzone, will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on PCs via Battlenet – with crossplay across those three platforms.

In addition to the Battle Royale mode, which allows up to 150 players, a second mode called “Plunder” has you competing to collect the most in-game cash and completing in-game missions or contracts.

Both games take place in a massive environment called Verdansk, based on the “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” game, according to an announcement and description of the game on the Activision blog.
