Warzone 2 is almost here, along with the start of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare II Season 1, the addition of the new DMZ mode and a plethora of new content to dive into. The new free-to-play Call Of Duty Battle Royale comes with the new Al Mazrah map, a brand new Battle Pass and overhauled game systems including 2v2 Gulag matches, all-new Buy Stations and a collapsing circle that can break into two or three smaller circles.

Pre-loading for Warzone 2 has now begun on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC via Battle.net and Steam. It has been tested preloading and run into a few snags which I’m currently working on with Activision. Basically, head to your platform’s storefront and search for Warzone 2. When it pops up people should be able to simply press the pre-load button and begin the installation. It’s possible that this is just the initial preload size, and there is another big update on the way that will require much more hard drive space. The new update hasn’t changed anything that can be seen in Modern Warfare II itself. The Battle Pass and Store are still locked. However, it has added a new main launcher screen with the option to choose between Modern Warfare II, Warzone: DMZ (Beta) and Warzone: Battle Royale.
