Activision Blizzard's free-to-play 'Warzone' experience has been a hit. There are more players joining month on month, and there will be even more who join via PS5 in the coming months. But can they play Warzone without a PlayStation Plus subscription? Details below.
Warzone being free-to-play explains why it's been so overwhelmingly successful in the past year. Perhaps you've just bought a new PS5 or picked up an older PS4, and you want to try out the game. It's worth doing so if you haven't before, because we might be saying goodbye to the current map, Verdansk, for good when the new Pacific map comes out. Now, Warzone is free to download, but can you even play online without PlayStation Plus?
Do You Need PlayStation Plus To Play Warzone?
No, luckily you don't need PlayStation Plus to enjoy Call of Duty's Warzone. That's great news all around, it means more players are going to keep the game popular for longer. It's especially good news for those that only play Warzone, who would otherwise be wasting money on a PlayStation Plus subscription.
There are some decent benefits from having PlayStation Plus when you play Warzone, however. Sony and Activision Blizzard entered a soft partnership over Call of Duty. This means that while the game is not exclusive to PlayStation, there are still additional cosmetics and earlier access occasionally available to PlayStation users. And for PlayStation Plus users, free bundles are regularly available in the Call of Duty store, such as the recent Combat Pack containing an Operator skin and a weapon blueprint.
Even if you have gone ahead and bought PlayStation Plus, it's not a waste. It gives you access to free games each month for one thing, and this month includes Call of Duty Black Ops 4!
