Activision and Infinity Ward announced Wednesday that more than 6 million players have dropped into Call of Duty: Warzone since its Tuesday release.

Call of Duty: Warzone, a new battle royale mode released as a free-to-play title in conjunction with Modern Warfare, released Tuesday after weeks of speculation. The mode acts as a separate entity to Modern Warfare, but still features the same gameplay mechanics. Users don't have to purchase Modern Warfare to play Warzone and it supports cross-platform play.

"What a day! 24 hours in and over 6 million of you have dropped into Warzone. Thank you - we're just getting started," Activision and Infinity Ward said on the Call of Duty Twitter account.

This is the second battle royale title released in the Call of Duty franchise following Black Ops 4's Blackout. The former was available on launch as part of Treyarch's title but didn't support cross-platform play nor was it free-to-play.

Warzone currently supports one trios playlist akin to Apex Legends. There is a no-fill option for those wanting to drop in solo, but players will still encounter squads of three.

Call of Duty: Warzone is available to download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
