Call of Duty: Warzone will soon offer a 200-player battle royale mode
Popular battle royale shooter Call of Duty: Warzone is upping its already large 150-person lobbies to let 200 people compete in Quad mode contests, publisher Activision announced today. The new lobby size will arrive with an update releasing at 2AM ET tomorrow, June 30th.
As of now, Warzone's lobby is one of the biggest we have ever seen in a Battle Royale. PUBG and Fortnite generally have 90-100 players in a match whereas Apex Legends has about 60.
A new limited time mode is coming to Call of Duty Warzone
Warzone’s large lobbies are one of many ways the game tries to differentiate itself from the increasingly crowded battle royale market.
But after this update, if you’re playing in a full Quad mode lobby of 200 people, you’ll be competing against 49 other teams of four, which could make Warzone’s already hectic games even more of a wild ride.
A total of 50 teams of four will compete for the win, meaning that no matter where you land, you've got to put your best foot forward. The map is going to be complete chaos and will make room for some really interesting moments.
The game mode will be a limited time mode for now. If the idea kicks off, then Activison might just add it as a permanent mode.
It seems the mode will only be available for a limited time, according to an image from Activision’s blog announcing the update, but it’s unclear exactly how long the mode will stick around.
When Warzone launched in March, Activision hinted that the game could someday get 200-person lobbies. “I can tell you we are already playing with 200 players,” said Patrick Kelly, co-head of Warzone developer Infinity Ward.
So, folks, go ahead and get ready for some intense firefights in Call of Duty: Warzone
