What if you already have COD: Modern Warfare?
If you already have Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you do not have to worry, Warzone will appear as a new tab within the main menu of the game (if it is updated to its latest version). From this same tab you can proceed to download the content of this Battle Royale.
Keep in mind that you will keep the progress of the multiplayer in this Warzone mode, as well as the unlocks and advances in the Battle Pass (weapons, operators, customization items) since Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare share the same Battle Pass.
You must bear in mind that this COD: Warzone is a huge download, so keep leaving space on your hard drives.
- If you already have a Modern Warfare, then COD: Warzone download will occupy between 15 and 22 GB of additional space.
- If you don’t have COD Modern Warfare: the Warzone, then the download of COD: Warzone is around 80 and 100 GB in size.
The good news in this regard is that Activision has confirmed that the download can be segmented, which means that when you have about 20 GB game data downloaded you can already start playing against bots to warm up and test the characteristics of the title.
Do I need PS Plus and Xbox Live GOLD to be able to play?
In addition, a frequent question that console players will have is if you need to have PS Plus, on PS4, and Xbox Live GOLD, on Xbox One, in order to play this COD: Warzone for free. The answer will please the players of the Sony console since on PS4 it is not necessary to have a PS Plus subscription to play this Battle Royale for free.
However, for Xbox One consoles, you must have a paid subscription to Xbox Live GOLD in order to play the title.
