In a way, this isn't surprising: Xbox has always required players to pay a subscription to use online gaming services. But even though it's not surprising that Call of Duty: War zone requires an Xbox Live subscription, it's still no doubt disappointing for some players.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare owners should have access to War zone already, however, as it released at 8 AM PDT. But players will still need an active Battle.net account to access Call of Duty: War zone on the Blizzard desktop app.
And War zone still has 150 players being able to participate at the same time, making it one of the biggest battle royal games to date. Hopefully, the game's unique gameplay and twin modes will make up for some of its more disappointing aspects, and the wait fans have had to go through.

The War zone Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has cross play activated by default, so if you’re on Xbox One or PS4, you’ll be fighting opponents wielding the aiming power of the mouse and keyboard. Modern Warfare fully supports this controller swap, and I’ll explain how it works below.
The new Battle Royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare drops you into the detailed Verdant map with 150 players split into 3-operator teams. Be the top squad of operators to survive by collecting powerful gear and crushing the competition.

The battle royale mode launches as a free-to- play experience, but requires Xbox Live Gold. It's no secret that Infinity Ward has been developing a battle royale mode for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
According to a report by MSPoweruser, “players of the newly-updated version of Modern Warfare have been able to glitch their way through the recently added Classified menu... Players will be able to run a training course, host a squad for teams, and matchmaker into a random squad... War zone was also recently leaked through an accidentally released promotional image which was promptly deleted.” A promotional image surfaced again, and it said that the title was a standalone free-to- play experience.
Firstly, as expected, it supports cross- play just like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Gold are subscription services that allow you to play multiplayer games on both consoles.

That's one of the big questions everyone wants to know, because couch co-op battle royale would be awesome in Call of Duty War zone. So without further ado, here are the details on if youcanplay a Call of Duty War zone split screen mode.
(Image credit: Activision)We'll save you some time; unfortunately, it is impossible to play Call of Duty War zone in split screen mode. We haven't been given a reason for the lack of split screen but there's a good chance it could simply be too taxing on current gen consoles.
War zone does have 150 players on an enormous map after all, so having to render two instances of the game on the same machine isn't an easy task. Welcome to War zone, the new free to play massive combat arena from the world of Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare.
Drop in, loot for rewards, and battle your way to the top across two epic modes. A new Call of Duty battle royale game is arriving tomorrow to compete with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Fortnite, and Apex Legends.
There have been many War zone leaks in recent weeks, but the game is officially arriving tomorrow, and you won’t even need Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to download and play since it’s free for everyone. War zone is set in a giant city dubbed Verdant, with more than 300 points of interest and landmarks for looting.
You’ll also be able to use vehicles to transport around the map, including an ATV, rover, SUV, cargo truck, and even a helicopter. If your teammates are also part of the Gulag queue, they can spectate the fight from a balcony and even assist by throwing rocks at opponents to stun them.
1-vs-1 in the Gulag variety of Contracts will exist in War zone, including simple scavenger missions to open supply boxes or ones to secure locations against enemies. Some Contracts even reward unique perks in the game like the ability to see the next circle collapse location before the ring starts to close.
War zone went live on Tuesday, March 10, at around 8:30pm IST for players who already own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as one-time early access. The game mode should be playable for everyone as it was supposed to go live a few hours after the early access period.
The Battle Royale mode puts 150 players in Verdant where the last man (or last team) standing wins. Plunder, on the other hand, is a race between players to see who can collect the most Cash by taking down enemies, looting, and completing contracts.
Players who have the updated version of the game will get an 18 GB to 22 GB download for War zone, which will then show up in the ‘Classified' section in-game, as stated in the blog post by the company. The post also states that players do not need the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to playWarzone.

This is awesome news for fans of the game who are worried about War zone losing support after Modern Warfare will no longer be the most recent Call of Duty title. Fortunately, Taylor Kurosawa, the Narrative Director of Infinity Ward, stated in an interview that War zone is ready to shift into the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 as soon as they are released.
There is also the possibility that Activision will release a remaster of the game which will totally demonstrate the advanced graphics and abilities of the upcoming consoles. Kurosawa also said that Infinity Ward has not decided yet if both Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and War zone will be released on Google Stadia.
Just last week, Call of Duty: War zone received another software update which introduced the Most Wanted Contract game mode.
