Following its premature unveiling via YouTube mishap earlier today, Activision has now formally detailed its free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale experience, known as Warzone, which launches tomorrow on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Warzone will feature two distinct play modes at launch: Battle Royale and Plunder. Battle Royale follows the usual last-man-standing formula, with 150 players in teams of three attempting to take out the opposition in a steadily shrinking play area, this time courtesy of a cloud of deadly gas. Plunder, also playable in three-person squads, is a race collect the most in-match Cash by looting the map, robbing downed enemies, and completing in-match Contracts.
A squad can have one Contract active at any time, with Scavenger Contracts challenging players to find and open a series of Supply Boxes, and Recon Contacts requiring players to secure a specific location. Alongside Cash (which can be used to purchase beneficial items from Buy Stations in Battle Royale mode), competing Contracts will provide loot and special rewards, such as the ability to see the next circle collapse location ahead of time.
