Warzone 2 has finally arrived, but do you need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription in order to play the Call of Duty title? We’ve got the answer right here.

You’ll find plenty of fun content to explore after jumping into Season 1 of Warzone 2, including the Escape from Tarkov-inspired DMZ mode, Al Mazrah map, and a wide assortment of powerful weapons.

Before you check out the action, you may be wondering if the game is free-to-play or if you need a PlayStation Plus and Xbox live subscription. We’ll go over everything that you need to know.

Is Warzone 2 free-to-play?

Just like the original, Warzone 2.0 is completely free-to-play for all players and requires no money to play the game. It features an optional paid premium Battle Pass system in which players receive rewards throughout the season.

While players have the option to spend their money on cosmetics, they are not forced to purchase anything, and Warzone 2 is available to enjoy completely free of charge. You can also play it without purchasing Modern Warfare 2.

Do you need PS Plus or Xbox Live to play Warzone 2?

Warzone 2 is available to play on PlayStation and Xbox consoles without a PS Plus and Xbox Live membership.

Simply meaning that all players, regardless of online membership, are able to play and enjoy Warzone 2 online at no expense.

This makes sense considering those on PC do not have to purchase a membership to play, making it fair for all platforms. Activision understandably want as many players playing Warzone 2 as possible.
