Call of Duty: Warzone is the latest major battle royale game to come out in the genre. Activision previously released Blackout which was a mode that came with its main title Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. The new game is a standalone title but it also features a similar theme and environment to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty: Warzone already off a good start

As a standalone, Warzone does not require players to purchase the main title to access the battle royale mode, as was the case with Blackout and Black Ops 4. Regardless of the type of game Warzone is this time, the Call of Duty name brand didn't fail to prove its popularity once again.

Call of Duty games have no shortages of loyal fans

By reaching a milestone 6 million downloads in just the first 24 hours, Call of Duty: Warzone left other competitors in the dust. The previous record for most downloads in the first 24 hours was 2.5 million for Apex Legends. Apex Legends then drew in 50 million downloads in its first month.

If you already had Modern Warfare, Warzone only requires an additional 18-20 GB of an update, while the full standalone game needs 80-100 GB of free space. But despite the size, it has some great gameplay features from other titles as well. Thanks to the free-to-play model, different game modes, and cross-platform ability, Warzone is proving to be a major competitor in the already saturated BR market.
