Warzone Mobile is set to take the iconic Call of Duty Warzone experience on the go, allowing players to try out the mode purposefully built for mobile devices. Call of Duty Warzone has quickly become one of the biggest battle royales in the world since its release, with the second edition also releasing to quick success in late 2022.

However, with the release of Warzone 2.0, many players may miss the old map of Verdansk and the experience it offers. So, you may want to know all about Warzone Mobile, which is built upon the first edition of the battle royale game.

Warzone Mobile currently has a release window of 2023, meaning the full version of the game is set to come sometime this year.

Currently, players can pre-register for the game on both Google Play and the App Store, which will notify you when it goes live.

You can also begin playing the limited-release version of the game by scanning the QR code on the Warzone Mobile website. This isn't available in all territories at the moment, but more are being added as the year goes on.

We don't have any exact details on when in the year it will launch, but more and more locations are getting to try the early access version, so we expect Activision to be ramping up for an official launch.

Warzone Mobile trailers

Warzone Mobile's first trailer was an announcement teaser which aired on September 8, 2022, shortly before Call of Duty Next where the game was fully revealed. It just showcased the airplane that carries players into matches, before showing the title.

The next trailer came during Call of Duty Next, which aired on September 15, 2022. This was a much longer CGI trailer which showcased various Operators dropping into the map, before cutting to various scenes of combat, ranging from people parachuting in, to players on vehicles chasing each other.

The Call of Duty Next showcase also saw the official gameplay deep dive trailer, where they showed some real gameplay while also explaining the game and its various features. They highlighted some of the POIs that would be available in the game and features from Warzone 2.0 like contracts.

Warzone Mobile gameplay

The Warzone Mobile gameplay is essentially the same as Call of Duty Warzone gameplay, just built and designed for mobile instead. 

For those who don't know, Warzone Mobile is a battle royale game where 120 players face off during a match, with the winner being the player or team left alive at the end. At the start of the game, all the players will drop in from an airplane, allowing them to choose exactly where they land. 

Once players land, they can begin looting and earning items like weapons, armour, equipment, killstreaks, and more. Gaining these is key, as the more powerful you are, the better your chance against all the other enemies.

As the game progresses, the map will be closed in as circles form that have deadly gas outside them. Over time this forces players together so they have to face off and players don't just camp in their respective corners of the map. 

A key feature of Warzone Mobile is also the cross-progression with Modern Warfare 2 and Warzone 2.0 on consoles and PC. This means you can work through the battle pass on one version of the game, and earn rewards for all of them.
