Call Of Duty Battle Royale Is In Beta
There being some kind of Call Of Duty Battle Royale has been a rumor for a few months now. Well, that rumor is actually a truth now as people in China are able to play Call Of Duty Battle Royale!
Call Of Duty Online is an exclusive COD game for the Chinese market and they are the ones who are getting the chance to test this early version of Call Of Duty Battle Royale. The idea is the same as PUBG and Fortnite, you want to be the last player standing and the match takes place on a map with a circle that is always moving inwards.
Unlike other Call Of Duty game modes, Call Of Duty Online Battle Royale sticks with the Battle Royale formula by not letting you pick weapons at the start of a match, you need to find them.
At the moment the matches are only for 18 players, but perhaps this is something that will be increased over time as Activision figures out all the kinks with the game. Also, you can actually pick your spawning point which is something that I find very interesting. One of the more unique features of this Battle Royale mode over Fortnite and PUBG is the presentation. There is an over the top announcer who is providing commentary when you take down an enemy. I am not sure what the point of this is, but it does work.
For the time being only those who are able to play Call Of Duty Online are able to play Call Of Duty Battle Royale. However, many folks (myself included) have a feeling that this will be a mode that is in the upcoming Call Of Duty Black Ops 4.
