Last year’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is one of the best games in the series for quite some time, and tomorrow, it’s getting a brand-new mode titled Warzone. This is the battle royale mode of which various aspects have leaked over the past few months. Now that it’s confirmed for launch tomorrow, Walmart has a slick deal on the full game. Of course, Call of Duty: Warzone is completely free for everyone, so you won’t need to wait for your copy to show up to start playing.
The game’s regular price is $60, but Walmart currently has Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for $45 on PS4 and Xbox One right now. On top of that, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for PC is $55. The PC version comes as a download code that you can redeem in Blizzard’s Battle.net client, and it’s emailed directly to you after purchase.
Call of Duty: Warzone launches March 10 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET for Modern Warfare owners. For those who don’t own the game, it’ll be available the same day at 12 PM PT / 3 PM ET. It features a huge map that can host 150 players in one match. In addition to the battle royale mode, it features Plunder, a mode where players have to collect the most cash to win. This requires you to loot, steal, and complete mid-game objectives called Contracts. You’ll also be able to take control of a number of different vehicles, including ATVs, trucks, and helicopters.
In GameSpot’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare review, editor Kallie Plagge scored the game a 7/10, praising its campaign missions and smart multiplayer additions while lamenting the “nonsensically difficult” Spec Ops mode.
“The pitfalls of Spec Ops don’t detract from what Modern Warfare does well, though,” she wrote. “Realism mode is an excellent addition to the slate, and although not all the new multiplayer modes are great, Gunfight and the Night Vision playlist are refreshing standouts. And while the campaign ends up playing it safe in the end, it’s still a memorable one, and it lays a strong foundation for where the Modern Warfare series could go from here.”
