Modern Warfare’s Battle Royale mode is finally upon us, but do you need to own the full game to play Warzone?

Modern Warfare’s main client plays host to Warzone as an option in the menu, but being attached to a full title wasn’t a great shout for Blackout. Have the devs learned their lesson?

Do you need to own Modern Warfare to play Warzone?

Battle Royale fans will be glad to hear you don’t need to own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in order to play Warzone. It’ll be both part of the main game and a standalone download. The update file for Modern Warfare owners will have an earlier release time than the full game, but not by too long so don’t worry if you don’t own Modern Warfare.

Keep in mind though - the free version will really set you back a big wedge of memory. You’ll need up to 100GB of free space for the free-to-play version, so get deleting your old games if you want to get on Warzone.

It’s still free though! Crossplay is available too, so all your friends will be able to get involved - provided they have an extra hard drive kicking about.
