Call of Duty fans are wondering if Warzone 2 will be free-to-play like its predecessor, or whether players will have to make a purchase to access the battle royale.

Warzone players are excited at the prospect of Warzone 2, a successor to the Call of Duty battle royale that is set to release alongside Modern Warfare 2.

While hardly any official information has been revealed about Warzone 2, leaks and rumors have suggested details about the map and mechanics.

With that being said, some are also wondering if it will follow a similar format to Warzone and be free-to-play.

Will Warzone 2 be free-to-play?

Currently, there is no official information regarding Warzone 2 being free-to-play. However, we do expect the battle royale to follow its predecessor and release as a free-to-play battle royale.

Just like Warzone, we also expect Warzone 2 to be a live game with some sort of paid premium battle pass system, in which players receive rewards throughout a season.

Although there will most likely be options for players to spend their money and receive benefits like cosmetics, just like Warzone, players will not be forced to purchase anything.

Players will likely be able to enjoy Warzone 2 completely free of charge, and may even still be able to redeem rewards through free tiers of the battle pass.

Will Warzone 2 require PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live?

Just like Warzone, we expect Warzone 2 to be available to play on console even for those without the PS Plus and Xbox Live memberships. If this is the case, this will mean that all players regardless of online membership will be able to play Warzone 2 online.

Although there is no official information, we feel Warzone 2 will likely follow this format, especially if it will be a free-to-play game.

This makes sense considering those on PC will not have to purchase a membership to play, making it fair for all platforms.


We’ll be sure to update this as new information is released, but for now check out our piece on Modern Warfare 2 potentially having an element of VR.
