The free-to-player battle royale game does not require Modern Warfare to play, however Activision has confirmed that all content already earned including Battle Pass items, Operators, weapons and customization items will carry over to Warzone.
Furthermore, all Battle Pass progression earned in Warzone will counts towards overall Modern Warfare progression too.
Warzone will share the same Item Shop and Battle Pass System as Modern Warfare.
The Battle Pass system allows players to unlock two new weapons, up to 300 COD points, calling cards and more by playing.
The Season Two Battle Pass is available for 1,000 Call of Duty Points (about $10/£8.50) for access to unlock up to 100 tiers of new content, including an instant unlock for Special Forces Operator, Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley.
Warzone will be available from 8am PST / 3pm GMT as a one-time early access for Modern Warfare owners, and launch a few hours later around 12pm PST / 7pm GMT, free for everyone.
The free-to-play battle royale mode will release as a standalone download and be comprised of two modes – one with respawns and one without – in a trio squad setup, with up to 150 players per match at launch.
