How to pre-load Warzone 2.0 on your console

On PlayStation and Xbox consoles it is easy to pre-load Warzone 2.0 so that it is ready to play at the game’s launch.

As a free-to-play game, you simply have to go to the store through your console, and select the game to install it.

If you already own Modern Warfare 2, you can save space by downloading the Warzone 2.0 Content Pack.

On PSN this is marked as the “You already own another edition” option on the store page.

If you own Modern Warfare 2 through, the download will automatically start and there is no need for additional installation.

Those who do own Modern Warfare 2 already will have the game updated automatically.
