Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 will debut as a new free-to-play battle royale mode on November 16 with a brand new map and a new extraction experience called DMZ.

The game will feature Al Mazrah, a new map set in the Middle East that is built for the modern warfare setting of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. Many of the parts of the map will be familiar to players who are already playing Modern Warfare II’s multiplayer.
