Call of Duty: Warzone Immortalizes Gamers’ Legacy With Idomoo Personalized Video

They say the bonds of battle run deep. How about the bonds of playing Warzone with friends?

That’s what the Call of Duty team decided to test with its enormous “Warzone Legacy” Personalized Video campaign, which celebrated the new Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 game by allowing players to share their legacy of the original Call of Duty: Warzone.

The Plan

Allow past Warzone players to receive and share their personalized data-driven video immortalizing their accomplishments, complete with their unique stats from their entire history of gameplay. Then, to take things up a notch, also call out the friends they played with (their “squadmates”).

  • Want to know which squadmates have been by your side through it all? We’ll tell you.
  • Want to know which of your friends died the most? We’ll tell you.
  • Want a report of your own lifetime stats? We got you there too.

Personalized Videos covered all of this and more in a high-adrenaline action-packed ride only fitting to the legendary Call of Duty franchise.

The Results

This was a massively successful social campaign with millions of gamers not just retrieving and sharing the Personalized Video but also tagging their squadmates, creating a chain reaction that led to instant virality.

“We’re always exploring new ways to engage our audience and give back to the Call of Duty community,” said Tyler Bahl, Head of Marketing, Call of Duty.

Within hours, dedicated members of the Call of Duty community were all in on the fun. Gamers didn’t just post their videos but also tipped each other off on how everyone could get and share their free #MyWarzoneLegacy video.
