By comparison, Apex Legends EA free-to-play Titanfall battle royale game attracted one million unique players the first eight hours of its debut and took 72 hours to hit 10 million players. Numbers continued to rise until it finally hit a peak of 50 million players a month later. Of course, it’s not really threatening Fortnite’s crown just yet, though – the fan-favourite battle royale has now surpassed 250 million players worldwide.
As Jordan explained at the time, Warzone is a new free-to-play battle royale Call of Duty game that pits 150 players against each other across two modes: Plunder and Battle Royale. Plunder tasks you with collecting the most money through loot, stealing money, and completing in-game Contracts. Battle Royale is rather self-explanatory, with some welcome innovations like battles between eliminated players that let the winner respawn back into the game.
With many gamers currently self-isolating and looking to spend some time immersed in their favorite games, it stands to reason that Call of Duty: Warzone just might continue to put up impressive numbers for Activision. During that time, players will no doubt have greater opportunities to delve into the game, and it just might help Warzone find an even bigger audience.
Call of Duty Warzone is an 18-22GB download for Call of Duty Modern Warfare owners and an 80-101GB download for everybody else.
