How to download Warzone on PS5 is a question that most new players ask, and may not easily find the answer to as expected.
While Call of Duty: Warzone is set to be integrated with Black Ops Cold War with the launch of Season 1 on Dec. 10, they are still two different games to be downloaded separately.
Here's how to properly download Call of Duty: Warzone on PlayStation 5.
How to Download Warzone on PS5
Aside from expecting Warzone to be installed along with Black Ops Cold War, a common issue PS5 players appear to be encountering is that despite it being a free-to-play game, the option to download Warzone independently from Modern Warfare as a separate PS5 game is missing.
The crux of the situation is that Warzone simply doesn't has a PS5 version yet.
While Modern Warfare will most likely remain as a backwards-compatible game, Warzone is enhanced on the next-gen Xboxes, with a PS5 version rumored to release on Dec. 10 as well.
At the moment, Warzone is functioning as a backwards-compatible game on PS5. Both in the PlayStation Store and in the PS5 Library, Warzone is classified as a PS4 game.
While downloading this PS4 Warzone file onto a PS5 will play as it did on the PS4 Pro just fine, this also means that next-gen features, such as 120 FPS, will not be enabled until the PS5 version of Warzone drops.
Here's how to download the free-to-play PS4 Warzone file on PS5.
- Find Call of Duty: Modern Warfare in the PlayStation Store with the $60 price displayed
- Click on the 3-dot menu
- Select “Call of Duty: Warzone - PS4” to download
