    In spite of the serious concessions to depth made in the name of instant gratification, Call of Duty: Warzone’s beta remains thoroughly enjoyable. The battle royale formula is intact, albeit some of the aspects that usually make it so exciting and replayable are muted here. I’d love to see a reason to try something other than my Modern Warfare multiplayer loadout in the future given how easy it is to acquire, and think that the armor plate system and gulag are in need of revision. But my time spent in Verdask was still supremely fun even if the how and the why of it didn’t matter all that much.

    Warzone is a great sophomore attempt at a battle royale from Call of Duty, which finally manages to carve out its own identity with interesting spins on the existing formula. Its subversion of death and the nail-biting Gulag duels give you more ways to stay in a match, while also forcing you to be aware of your surroundings even after wiping a rival squad. Its looting is streamlined enough to make early moments feel fast, but Warzone also loses some of the messy magic from hobbled together loadouts by letting you drop in prebuilt ones far too easily and frequently. Still, if you're comfortable with Call of Duty's latest iteration of multiplayer antics and thrive in the stressful setting of battle royales, Warzone is a strong contender for your attention.

    Unplayable and unenjoyable because of hackers. Seriously don’t waste your time.

    I'm having a great time with this game. A lot of customization, fast pace, and intense campaign.

    As an xbox player, the fact I have to play with PC players who are using aimbots is absolutely outrageous. I do not mind playing with PCAs an xbox player, the fact I have to play with PC players who are using aimbots is absolutely outrageous. I do not mind playing with PC players, i already do with some of my friends. I have heard new ways to report players are coming, but I could easily avoid this by playing in console only games.

    Also there now exists Quads, Trios, and Solos. Where is Duos?

    The servers consistently crash or lag. It's not fun when you are playing and you get kicked mid game to download an update.

    It is *insane* that the game makes you download 8 dlc just to play the game. They just added another 18 GB one on top of their 12 GB update. I download the game, go to play after waiting, the it prompts me to download an entirely different and new "data pack". What is wrong with you Activision? Just do it like any other Xbox game.
