Yes, Call of Duty: Warzone is real.

Activision and Infinity Ward have officially announced Call of Duty: Warzone following all of the rumors and speculation over the last few weeks. We had a chance to visit Infinity Ward a few weeks back to get a first look at the game and go hands on with at the studio.

The new Call of Duty experience will be available starting March 10 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

And yes, Call of Duty: Warzone is free to play. For everyone. No purchase of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is required to play this game.

Call of Duty: Warzone features two modes to play: Plunder and Battle Royale.

Warzone features a massive map that is pieced together with the Ground War and Special Ops locations from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and is similar to what has been leaked through game files the past few months.

If you are someone who currently owns Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the Classified tab will be updated to be Warzone mode. If you are someone who does not own Modern Warfare, there will be a separate download for free to get Call of Duty: Warzone on your platform’s store starting Tuesday, March 10. Information on the release schedule is here.

This is Activision’s first free to play experience for consoles and PC. Call of Duty ventured into free to play in October 2019 with Call of Duty: Mobile, which has been extremely successful for the company. Now, they’re hoping they can replicate that success on consoles and PC with Call of Duty: Warzone.

Call of Duty: Warzone is a co-developed game between Infinity Ward and Raven Software and published by Activision.

We’ve posted some Battle Royale gameplay on our Twitter here.
