Godzilla and King Kong terrorize Warzone, because why not?

Warzone – Call of Duty’s stand-alone free-to-play pirate’s den of cheaters, hackers, and aspiring YouTube celebs – ain’t exactly the epitome of realism. Never has been, never will be. Lots of dumb shit has been added to the battle royale game to make it more appealing. And that’s all fine, I guess. But why did people decide to add King Kong and Godzilla to Warzone? Why?! Because fuck it, that’s why.

I guess I shouldn’t act all surprised. As I said, there ain’t much that doesn’t make the cut. Snoop Dogg as a playable character? Sure. John Rambo and John McClane? Why the hell not? And all those choices kinda work. Blowing stuff is what they do. Ganja, guns… it both starts with a G and fuck people up. But Godzilla and King Kong? Really?

It’s also not something that comes out of the blue. The arrival of Godzilla has been teased frequently. So calling this a total shocker is pointless. But that doesn’t take away the fact that I just don’t get it. Then again, Activision will find a way to make it sensible, perhaps. But up till now, it’s anyone’s guess how Operation Monarch – the event that brings us the crossover – will tie it in.

Let’s hope that May 11 – Operation Monarch’s release date – won’t go down in history as the dumbest day ever…
