The Call of Duty Warzone 2 release date is fast approaching and we’re quietly optimistic that this iteration of the popular free-to-play FPS game could very-well be the best battle royale game out there – when it launches, anyway. If you’re sitting there with your Xbox controller waiting to jump into this game on your Xbox Series X|S, you might be asking yourself the following question: do you need Xbox Live Gold to play Warzone 2?
Traditionally, when you sit down to play an Xbox game online with friends – or strangers – on your Xbox console, you need an active Xbox Live Gold membership. However, things are changing and it’s not as silly as it may sound to ask whether you need Xbox Live Gold for the game.
Do you need Xbox Gold Live to play Warzone 2?
You don’t need Xbox Gold Live to play Warzone 2 on an Xbox console. Through Xbox, Microsoft has committed to making sure free-to-play games like Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Warzone 2, are actually free to play for the players. This means you don’t need an active Xbox Gold Live subscription to play it online.
You will, however, need to create an Xbox Live account – but, you should already have one if you play games on an Xbox console.
Well, that just about covers that. If you’re looking forward to this battle royale game, you can find out more information about the Warzone 2 map details.
