The free-to-play Battle Royale will also feature a mode called Plunder and does not require Modern Warfare to play.

Check out the full details on the Activision blog, or read below for the TL:DR;
 

PLUNDER

Plunder is like Bounty Hunt from Titanfall 2. The race is on to collect the most in-match Cash by looting across the map, taking down enemies to steal their Cash, and completing in-match Contracts.

BATTLE ROYALE

Warzone’s BR pits squads against each other to be the last ones standing while escaping deadly gas in the quick-moving zone, with up to 150 players.

SETTING

Verdansk is the setting for Warzone, a massive city with several named zones and over 300 POIs.

VEHICLES

Warzone includes five different types of vehicles to use to flee the closing circle or move to another zone; an ATV, Tactical Rover, SUV, Cargo Truck or Helicopter.

The Mechanics: The Gulag (Battle Royale)

Warzone is dedicated to providing players with interesting and unique matches every time, allowing you to change up your strategies every game.

Upon your first elimination, you will be taken as a “Prisoner of Warzone” and thrown into the Gulag. There you will await your fate and watch other prisoners fight to the death. When your turn is up, you’ll enter the Gulag and face-off against a single opponent in a 1v1 to earn the ultimate reward - redeployment. Win in the Gulag and earn redeployment back into Verdansk. Lose and hope that your squad completes Contracts and earns enough in-match Cash to redeploy you.

Contracts

Multiple types of contracts (including Scavenger Contracts & Recon Contracts) can be found and activated all over Verdansk. A squad can activate one Contract at a time and completing it rewards you in-match Cash and other loot items.

As well as in-match Cash, Contracts can give you special abilities such as being able to see the next circle collapse location before it starts to close.
