Warzone Caldera is officially back, and if you’re interested in downloading the Warzone Pacific version of CoD battle royale, then our guide will help you to do this on PS4, PS5, and PC.

Warzone 2.0 is now the de facto Call of Duty battle royale experience, but its new looting mechanics might not be for everyone, nor its new Gulag changes and use of Proximity Chat.

Not only that, but Warzone players might simply prefer the sunny, tropical nature of Caldera to the new middle-Eastern exploits of Al Mazrah.

Warzone Caldera has now rebranded and relaunched, and if you’re eager to hop back into Caldera, our guide will sort you out.

How to download & install Warzone Caldera on PS4

For the time being, it appears that Warzone Caldera can only be downloaded if you’ve owned Warzone 1 previously on PS4, and can be selected from your game library.

  2. Find and press on Game Library.
  3. Search for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
  4. Now, download the Warzone Caldera aspect of the game.
  5. Once it’s finished, you can now hop back into Caldera and relive its gameplay mechanics.

We imagine that the download option will become available in due course for newcomers to the game, and when it does, we’ll be sure to update this guide ASAP.
