Call of Duty: Warzone has been exceeding a lot of expectations as Activision and Infinity Ward's entry into the battle royale genre. For the uninitiated and for the super fan, the team at Infinity Ward posted a special behind-the-scenes video going into how this Modern Warfare spin-off was made.
"We wanted to make Warzone, because big open-world games really excite us and we really want to have no boundaries for new players," Infinity Ward Design Director Geoff Smith said. "And with cross-play, everyone can jump in and have fun."
The behind-the-scenes video explains a lot of what makes Warzone unique. It also explains a lot of what makes Warzone different from its battle royale contemporaries, namely the game's economy system and the various CoD-isms, like Contracts. Plus, there's the Gulag, the 1v1 fight-to-the-death where the winner gets to return to the match while the loser is permanently eliminated.
