In the not too distant past, when you sat down to play a PlayStation game online with your friends – or with strangers, of course – on your PS4, you’d need an active PS Plus membership. However, things are changing and it’s really not as silly as you might think to ask whether you need PS Plus to play Warzone 2 online.

Do you need PS Plus to play Warzone 2?

So, we’re going to cut to the chase and give you the short answer to this question. No, you don’t need an active PS Plus membership to play Warzone 2 on a PlayStation console – or, at least, you shouldn’t need to. Much like Microsoft, Sony is committed to making free-to-play games like Apex Legends, Fortnite, and Warzone 2 fully free to play for the players. This means you shouldn’t need to pay for a PS Plus subscription if you want to play it online.

However, you’re going to need a PSN account – but, this is something you should already have if you play your games on a PlayStation console.
