Call of Duty Warzone is Activion’s rumored Battle Royale and a companion for Modern Warfare. Warzone is also available as free-to-play stand-alone via the Battle.net Launcher.
Especially for viewers there will be plenty competitive Warzone content. Keemstar will run weekly WarzoneWednesday tournaments with a $20.000 prize pool each week, 100 Thieves will run a $50.000 charity tournament and Twitch will also join with at least one Rivals tournament. All of those will feature some great competition, but of course also bunch of entertainment.
For the every day player it’s open if there will be much options to compete. Even Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019) has no ranked yet, so we wouldn’t expect that. Maybe Warzone opens up for third parties like FaceIT or GLL.
Warzone has a solo-mode and also some third party leaderbords / stats sites, but the provided data could be better. It’s no alternative to a real ranked mode or in-game leaderboards yet.
But keep in mind, there is only so much you can organize in a game with 150 players in each match! For more serious Warzone Esports there would be a need for a smaller map and less players per match. We’ll see what the future brings for competitive Warzone players.
Yes! You can play between all platforms.
Warzone released March 10th, 2020.
