San Francisco, March 21 (IANS) The new Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty called Warfare has seen over six million players joining within 24 hours of the game’s release across various platforms.
The game hit six million players in its first 24 hours on PCs and consoles.
The number has been impacted due to work-from-home policies as people stay indoors during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier this week, the game announced the arrival of a solo mode to its battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone.
It is available for free on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
At launch, Warzone only supported squads of three players. The solo mode will support 150 players, just like the squads version, for a total of 50 squads per match.
Meanwhile, Fortnite and Apex Legends has usual 100 per match. Apex Legends also introduced a limited time solo mode, but it is currently unavailable.
The free-to-play and cross platform experience, Call of Duty: Warzone, is available to download for free. One do not need to own the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to download, play and enjoy Warzone. Call of Duty: Warzone is free for everyone.
Warzone is a massive combat arena, set in the expansive and dense city of Verdansk, where up to 150 players will battle for victory, across two distinct epic modes of play, Battle Royale and Plunder.
For owners of the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Warzone will replace the previously named ‘Classified’ panel in the Main Menu.
