Activision has released new details of Call of Duty: Warzone on mobile, expected to launch later in the year. Project Aurora will, according to the studio, “bring friends, families, and people around the world together in a global community of diverse players with a fast-paced, precise, and high-quality Battle Royale action experience that delivers a fresh new way to play.”
“You may have heard whispers about Project Aurora already in the depths of Reddit or through speculation on YouTube, but we haven’t officially revealed anything yet.” the message reads. They add that while development continues, the studio is “in the midst of our first gameplay test in the Project Aurora Closed Alpha.”
The Closed Alpha, only available to a selection of invited participants, the studio says, is “just a slice” of what players can expect from the new battle royale mode, while its purpose is to “optimize and refine” the game before its release date. They explain that the “Closed Alpha is limited in size and with it we are looking to simply start to improve tuning, stress test matches, identify and fix bugs, as well as collect feedback and insights on all aspects of the game as new features come online.”
What is worth noting is that Project Aurora is only a placeholder, as the studio has yet to finalise the name.
Also in Call of Duty news, and as reported by GameLuster, a recently leaked image spotted online appeared to suggest the second iteration of Warzone will release in November. Elsewhere, the final season of content for Call Of Duty: Vanguard, Last Stand, launched on August 24. Described as an “epic finale,” the final season features a host of returning villains from across the franchise.
Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II will launch on October 28, 2022, on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, and PC via Battle.net and Steam.
