Many Warzone fans have been trying to preload the game, so they can start playing as soon as it goes live, and now it appears that Steam players who already have Modern Warfare 2 installed will be able to play the game without having to download more files.

This information comes from the official Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Steam forum currently pinned at the top of the discussions tab. The post was made by a developer who also shares that players will have to look out for the season one update before Warzone 2.0’s launch on November 16.

In a recent stream, several content creators got to play and stream Warzone 2.0, and DMZ showing all players what the game will look like once it releases, and it gave a glance at how the DMZ game mode will play out when it goes out.

Even though many players are excited about Warzone 2.0, a few fans are not sold on the DMZ game mode and are waiting for its release to see if it offers something different to the battle royale experience.

Casual players do not know how extraction shooters play out, so DMZ may be their first introduction to the genre. Extraction shooters are relatively new, Escape from Tarkov is the main game that represents the genre, so there’s a chance that this is the first introduction to the genre for many Call of Duty players.

Many Escape from Tarkov veterans are waiting for DMZ’s release to test this new extraction shooter experience, so the expectations are high from experienced players of the extraction shooter genre.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available now on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. For more information about the game, go to the official Treyarch Studio Twitter account.
