Following Infinity Ward’s decision to launch the Modern Warfare 2 campaign a week earlier than the multiplayer experience, you might be sitting there wondering whether there’s Warzone 2 early access – and if you can play Warzone 2 early, too. Don’t worry, you’re not alone – we’re as excited for this new battle royale experience as you – and we’re here to help you answer that question.

Ahead of Warzone 2’s launch, asking questions like the one mentioned above – and things like whether Warzone 2 has loadouts – is actually quite smart. Thanks to Modern Warfare 2, we know about all the Warzone 2 guns and weapons, but that’s about it. As important as knowing the new Warzone 2 map is going to be, having hands-on experience before other people is your best chance at victory when the game and the Warzone 2 DMZ release date arrives.

Does Warzone 2 have early access?

The short answer to this question is no. Unfortunately, Warzone 2 does not have early access – unless you’re one of a select few Call of Duty content creators who have been invited to an in-person event to play it, anyway. But, you can play early by changing the region on your Activision account here.

As you might imagine, this also means that you cannot play Warzone 2 early – which, we’re sorry about. However, there’s not that long to wait. We will be sure to update this guide if anything changes.
