Call of Duty: Warzone Battle Royale Gameplay Leaks Early

The free-to-play, battle royale game emerges.

There have been rumors circulating about a standalone Call of Duty battle royale game for a while now, and gameplay has finally emerged online. Earlier today a new video showed off 'Warzone,' a huge battle royale game with over 150 players.

Since then however, the video originating from YouTube channel Chaos has been removed, since it probably broke an embargo or two. The early gameplay leak showed Warzone in action, a massive battle royale game featuring solo, duo, and triple modes of play.

While the video was live, it showed players appearing to start out Warzone with nothing but a pistol, and early on in the gameplay video there was a notification telling the player to 'Spend Cash at Buy Stations,' pointing towards a mechanic similar to Fortnite's vending machines.

One of the more eyecatching prospects about Call of Duty: Warzone is that it's entirely standalone, and free-to-play. You won't need to own any other Call of Duty to be able to access and play Warzone whenever it eventually releases.

On top of this, it's also allegedly cross-platform. We're not entirely sure whether PC players will be able to play against console counterparts, but Xbox One and PS4 players will certainly be able to squad up with and against each other.

Currently, there's no slated release date for Call of Duty: Warzone. But with YouTubers like Chaos having already seemingly visited Infinity Ward to play the battle royale game, it's hard not to suspect that a release date is right around the corner.
