The Call of Duty franchise is massive and each year we get a new installment to enjoy across multiple platforms. When 2019’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare reboot released, there were plenty of rumors circulating online that a battle royale game mode would be added in at some point. Not only did that rumor proved to be true, but it was also a game mode that fans could enjoy for free as a standalone experience. Normally, it’s tough for developers to break into the battle royale genre simply due to the popularity of genre right now and the fact of the market being flooded with new games into the mix. Still, it left some franchises to squeeze in due to name recognition such as Call of Duty: Warzone. This game has been released and continues to find newcomers along with veterans sticking around simply because of how well the game plays.
It’s a battle royale game that offers a variety of matches so if you don’t feel like playing solo, you can join in with a group of other players. Gameplay mechanics also feel responsive as it comes from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare so if you’re familiar with the Call of Duty controls and gameplay setup then you should feel rather comfortable with this game. While there’s no real war setting in this game, the fact that you’re having to battle against a swarm of players should keep you pretty entertained. Likewise, there have been statements made in the past that we should see Call of Duty: Warzone evolve over the years to match up alongside other iconic Call of Duty franchises that will launch into the market such as the upcoming Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War. Just how they plan to evolve the game remains to be seen, but we could see some unique weapons or even map changes.
Speaking of this topic, its also certainly worth adding into the point of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. This may be a reboot of a previous video game series within the Call of Duty franchise but it’s also a well received entry. There’s a blockbuster terrorism type of war players will get to go through in the campaign not to mention the other game modes available online. It may be last year’s installment at the time of writing this, but there is still plenty of active players enjoying the game today.
