First and foremost, Warzone will be cross platform and free-to-play. That means you won’t need a copy of Modern Warfare, released last August, to dive in. According to Chaos, devout Call of Duty fans that purchased the last instalment will have access to exclusive character skins and customized weapons. It’s a huge shift for Activision, though, which used Blackout to push sales of Black Ops 4 and make up for the game’s missing campaign. Warzone, meanwhile, is clearly meant as a self-contained experience — just like FortnitePUBG and Apex Legends — that can grow the series’ fanbase and be monetized independently of Modern Warfare.
