Modern Warfare Battle Royale: What Is Classified mode? Battle Royale Warzone Announcement Coming Soon?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare has a new main menu item, but what could it mean? Is this finally the arrival of Battle Royale?

Call of Duty Modern Warfare launched its second season yesterday, but it’s not the new operator, maps, or modes that have players in a frenzy.

No, what’s got fans all excited is a new entry on the main menu of the game that leads to a mode that’s “Classified”.

Could this be the first sign of a Battle Royale?

Is It A Battle Royale?

Of course, many are crying out for this to be the final confirmation of the oft-rumoured Battle Royale, and thanks to a reputable leaker of CoD info we may well have a better idea of what to expect.

Youtuber TheGamingRevolution released a series of tweets last night, which shine a light on a forthcoming Battle Royale mode that he claims is coming “sooner than you expect”.

 

Let’s break down some of his tweets and what they’ll mean for the mode:

  • Battle Royale is likely to be called Warzone
  • It’ll be a free update for Modern Warfare but will also allegedly launch as a free download, too.
  • The game could have two different versions – a faster-paced one and. A more tactical version.
  • There will be a tutorial for the Battle Royale, potentially set in an area called Armistice Training Facility.
  • From images tweeted, it looks like vehicles will play a part, including quad-bikes and helicopters.

  • Season 1 cosmetics might be able to be earned in Battle Royale, potentially as a last chance way to earn rewards you missed.
  • Classic Operators are coming to the game.
  • Remade Modern Warfare 2 maps could also form part of the mode’s map. Fingers crossed for Favela and Terminal.
  • A trailer could hit at any time, so be on your toes!
  • As you can imagine, we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground in case something breaks today so be sure to check back to Gfinity.
