We’ve tried Operation Monarch, a new free-to-play experience for Call of Duty: Warzone players that pits them against Kong and Godzilla.
Call of Duty: Warzone decided to do big things, literally: the reference to the great action classics of the 80s went even further, in this case it included two famous giant monsters: Kong and Godzilla, which we will be able to face until May 25th Operation Monarch in free mode.
The idea was to put the famous Battle Royale players on a seemingly desperate task: to find a way to expel the two giant creatures as they continue to destroy the island of Caldera among punches, pests, and special attacks like the legendary Atomic. Breathing: puffs of plasma that the Japanese monster emits from its mouth and destroys everything in its path.
Let’s find out how Kong and Godzilla stormed into Call of Duty: Warzone – Operation Monarch.
Connected to the Call of Duty: Warzone main menu, it uses Operation Monarch Return rules To engage us in a frantic and spectacular battle you will see us not only face the other teams on the field, but also the two colossal creatures who invaded the island of Caldera and threatened to destroy it with the devastating force of their strikes.
canopy inside a map Together with fifty-nine other players, we will, as usual, have to find weapons and equipment to be able to defend ourselves while the scenario gradually narrows due to the release of poisonous gas. The goal is always the same, to be the only survivors at the end of the match, but reaching it will be much more difficult because of Kong and Godzilla.
The two giant beasts are trampling the ground and gradually ramping up their rage until they are in a state of rage, which is why we will have to try to collect as much as possible quickly. Monarch informationObtain it from chests shown on the map from the corpses of slain enemies or by attacking Titans directly, perhaps with a moving tower or on a plane.
Once a special indicator is filled out, we will be able to use the accumulated energy to activate a series of traditional kills, order the delivery of equipment or obtain SCREAME DEVICEwhich allows you to take advantage of the special abilities of Kong and Godzilla to direct their attacks and thereby defeat a large part of the participants in the game.
The mechanical mix put together by the developers of Call of Duty: Warzone for Operation Monarch looks very compelling at once. The Return mode rules In fact, they allow our character to appear after a kill where at least one teammate is still alive and that possibility undoubtedly softens the edges of a tougher condition.
But even more remarkable is this epic battle unfold, with giant monsters serving not only as a (disturbing) backdrop to the action but also Actively participatewhich brings back the feeling that you are really part of a desperate clash against almost unbeatable titans, whose location we will have to constantly check on the map to avoid unwanted communications.
Likewise, the presence of Kong and Godzilla is effective distracting element For other users, it often gives us the opportunity to drop our blows against players who are bent on controlling the situation, unaware of what is happening around them at that moment. However, the format changes the cards on the table and a minimally organized team will make the difference again.
Thus, the “flaw” of the Monarch process, if we want to define it in this way, is the same as in any team experience: if you enter the game with friends and continuechoral work The odds of making it to the end of the match will double, while the individual sorties (literally) will be short-lived.
Technically, Operation Monarch takes the now unified Caldera map, which debuted in Warzone a few months ago, and enriches it by introducing Kong and Godzilla. monsters appear very goodRich in detail and equipped with a good set of animations.
But above all it is theirs credibility To make a difference, thanks to a certain degree of attention to the speed of their movements and the effect on the scenario. An aspect that the developers have worked well on, and backed up by chaos sound Born from the presence of creatures.
Operation Monarch comes as a compelling event sometimes Thrilling, able to present somewhat original situations regarding the royal battle scene. The solidity of the platform, which we found very subtle and stimulating on the PS5, shows in short that it can also be compared to different approaches than usual.
After the action stars of the ’80s and giant monsters, Warzone truly seems to have no limits and it will be interesting to see what creative direction the game takes in the coming months.
