Call of duty War zone, which starts the fifth season at 11pm PT tonight, will continue beyond 2020 and “will be linked to other games in the Calling universe”, according to design director Infinity Ward.
In an interview with GamesRadar, Geoff Smith repeated it War zone “It was created from the beginning as its own game.” The Call of Duty core multiplayer community has often shifted from game to game as newer entries are released. The plan for War zone is that it will continue to exist alongside these newer entries, maintaining its community over the years, including new elements and characters from those newer games.
“If[[[[War zone]continues to be updated over time, it will evolve and connect with other games in the Call of Duty universe, “Smith told GamesRadar.
Yesterday, Infinity Ward and Activeision launched a trailer describing some of the major changes coming to the battle royale. The map of Verdansk is taking a pretty dynamic look, destroying the roof of its stadium and ramming a train through the middle of the city.
Call of Duty Warzone is free to play, which also applies to the content of the new season; Activision sells a Battle Battle Pass of $ 9.99 to give players extra content and rewards. The free to play / Battle Pass model would suggest that Activeision intends to keep it War zone around, instead of starting with something else when this year’s still unknown sequel begins.
War zone has become known for more odd updates that fit a full size download. The latter is 36 GB on the PlayStation 4, big enough that players before loading on that console had to split into two groups randomly, one getting the update on Sunday and another yesterday. The update is live for everyone right now, and the season starts at 2am ET / 11pm PT tonight.
