Call of Duty: Warzone has over 75 million players

Activision has announced that Call of Duty: Warzone now has over 75 million players. 

The game first launched on March 10 free to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The last time the company provided an update on the numbers was in early May, when the company said the game passed 60 million players. 

Call of Duty: Warzone has reached over 75 million players to date. In the first full quarter since Warzone launched, hours played in the Modern Warfare universe increased eight-fold year-over-year, driven by both existing and new players.

Reaching 75 million players in its 4 months makes it one of the fastest growing free to play games of all time, up to par with Apex Legends. 

Warzone is Activision’s first ever free to play experience on consoles on PC and has been extremely successful for the company. 

Activision also says that Modern Warfare’s premium sales were the highest during Q2 2020 compared to any other outside of launch quarter in Call of Duty’s history, with many of those sales coming from Warzone upgrades.

Modern Warfare added more players outside of a launch quarter to the premium Call of Duty experience than ever before, with the majority coming through upgrades from Warzone. On PC, life-to-date consumption for Modern Warfare is more than double that of the prior title.

Call of Duty: Warzone’s newest season, Season 5 which is set to bring map changes and more, launches on August 5.

Warzone Season 6 Subway system detailed

Published

on

Activision has officially provided more information how the new Subway system in Call of Duty: Warzone will work.

The new Subway will be added to Warzone with the start of Season 6. Season 6 is set to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

Here’s a quick overview of accessing the new Metro station:

The platform itself is broken up into two halves, with each side dedicated to a different direction of the subway line. Both sides have a small room, such as an employee break area or equipment closet, that can be accessed via double doors. Nearly every one of these rooms also has a near escape ladder, which leads up to a hole on the surface a few dozen meters from the main subway staircase entrance.

Whether it’s in these rooms, on the platform, or even back at the previously accessible ticket office landing area, there is the potential for items, Supply Boxes, and Contracts to populate these otherwise abandoned subway stations. 

Metro System – Stations & Locations:

The new Verdansk Metro Service is fully operational in Season 6 of Warzone. There are the following stops:

  • Verdansk International Airport
  • Lozoff Pass
  • Verdansk Center
  • Downtown/Tavorsk District
  • Barakett Shopping District
  • Verdansk Train Station
  • Torsk Bloc

Per the Call of Duty Blog, the subway system will not move if there is any fighting happening on the train itself or on the railways. The blog also states that the subway will not go to station where the circle collapse in taking place already.

Specifically, a subway train will not move to a station that is under the effects of the circle collapse. This avoids a situation of a squad hopping aboard a subway that leads to an untimely death… unless, of course, it’s at the hands of another squad waiting at the next station.

Speaking of fighting, there is no room for roughhousing onboard the Metro. In fact, the subway will not move at all if there is any conflict on board, or between the train and the platform, so keep fighting to the platform, stairwells, and outside the station.

Stay tuned for more information to come as Sept. 29 approaches.

Published

on

Activision and Infinity Ward announced that Season 6 for Modern Warfare and Warzone begins on Tuesday, September 29.

The company released a new cinematic trailer for Season 6, unveiling the new operators coming including Farrah and Nikolai.

The trailer also revealed the new Subway system coming to Warzone, allowing players a new way to traverse the map as they play.

Here’s a look at the Subway system:

Trailer:

The Call of Duty blog has provided more details on what to expect from the two new Operators, who are part of the upcoming Season 6 Battle Pass.

Farah

“This occupation must end. That we can all agree on, yes?”

The founder and Commander of the Urzikstani Liberation Force, Farah, grew up a fighter after surviving imprisonment by Roman Barkov. She’s an exceptional soldier and leader that’s known a lifetime of war. Her skills have been further honed with additional training with the SAS, and she’s led dangerous missions to fight off Al-Qatala forces and other regimes stationed in her country. 

Following the events of Campaign, Farah joins the Chimera of the Allegiance reuniting with Iskra, a former scout of hers. Farah is instantly unlocked at Tier 0 of the Season Six Battle Pass. In addition to Farah’s base skin, players can earn additional skins and other rewards by completing her Operator Missions. 

Nikolai

“Nikolai, you’ve been a bad boy.” “From you that’s a compliment.”

Nikolai is the leader of the Chimera, a PMC within the Allegiance. A long-time friend to Captain Price, Nikolai initially worked with Price, Kamarov, and Kate Laswell to build the Armistice to stop the rise of a new AQ. After the Armisitice collapse, Nikolai now takes the battle in his own hands to stop Zakhaev. 

Nikolai is a Russian patriot at heart with a deep love for his country only matched by his love for weaponry. He’s known as a fixer and can acquire most anything, anywhere. Despite his murky background, he’ll always choose what’s right when it counts. Nikolai is unlocked at Tier 100 of the Season Six Battle Pass. Players can complete Operator Missions to earn additional skins for Nikolai and other rewards. 

Season 6 will begin on Sept. 29 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Alongside the new content teased in the trailer, there will also be more to come in MP.

Stay tuned for the latest on Season 6.
