Warzone 2‘s 70GB update, which will allow players to jump into the new battle royale game later today, is finally live on consoles if you own Modern Warfare 2.

While a smaller version of the update (2.5 GB on PlayStation and 6GB on Xbox) has been live for a few days, console players are now reporting that a new update, which is just under 70GB on both platforms, has started to roll out.

VGC has confirmed that the update is live on PlayStation, however, players may have to trigger it manually by checking for an update on the Modern Warfare 2 application.

Warzone 2 will go live on November 16 at 10am PT / 1pm ET / 6pm GMT.

Warzone 2’s launch map is the city of Al Mazrah in the United Republic of Adal. It features 18 major points of interest, and multiplayer players will be familiar with several locations. The maps Al Bagra Fortress, Embassy, Zarqwa Hydroelectric, Taraq, Sariff Bay and Sa’id are all subsections of Al Mazrah.

Custom loadouts are returning for Warzone 2, while the game features a new backpack system for carrying items, which is fully integrated for DMZ and streamlined for battle royale modes.

The new Gulag is a 2v2 environment where randomly paired duos are challenged with defeating their opponents to return to the battle royale. Opposing players can also team up to try and earn a second chance by killing a powerful AI jailer, who will appear mid-match.

Players can choose to take on AI combatants at Strongholds and Black Sites too, for a chance to unlock their Loadout in the early game.

New Warzone 2 features include aquatic combat and a fuel mechanic. Waterways are navigable by boat or swimming. When submerged, only sidearms, melee weapons, throwing knives and equipment can be used.
