Looking for a new game? Take a look at Call of Duty: Warzone. It doesn’t cost a penny to install, and there’s already a huge player base in action.
Call of Duty: Warzone attracted more than 15 million players worldwide in just four days, the franchise announced on Twitter.
Activision Blizzard knew that it’d find immediate success. It’s the result of a top-selling video game franchise and a fast-growing genre joining together. Each Call of Duty installment sells better than most games, and titles like Fortnite and Apex Legends indicate just how much gamers love the battle royale format. With this redesigned extension of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, gamers are getting a free-to-play experience that’s a lot like what they’re already familiar with.
Gamers should continue flocking to Call of Duty: Warzone, and it wouldn’t surprise if the player base multiplies significantly in the months ahead. Epics Games’ Fortnite exceeded 250 million players last summer, and Electronic Arts’ Apex Legends has around 80 million players. Both publishers generate a large amount of revenue through these free-to-play titles as gamers pull the trigger on in-game purchases unlocking items, customizations, and bonuses.
It’s not the first battle royale component in Activision Blizzard’s franchise, however. Treyarch, one of its subsidiaries, released ‘Blackout’ as a special battle royale-based mode within Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Infinity Ward is handling the latest installment, but there’s no doubt it likely discussed the genre with Treyarch while developing Call of Duty: Warzone. Everyone seems satisfied with the standalone title in its first few days.
Call of Duty: Warzone is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. Get started with one of those systems, and then you’re all set to enter a vast battlefield with all the bells of whistles of other Call of Duty games.
