Over 6 million players have experienced Call of Duty: Warzone in the past 24 hours — 60 million to date — and it doesn't seem like that figure isn't going to slow down any time soon. If you aren't familiar with the game, Call of Duty: Warzone is a free-to-play Call of Duty battle royale experience. Yes, you read that right, you don't have to buy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, the latest release, to play the battle royale mode.

If you own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, you'll just have to download a roughly 20 GB update and can access the battle royale mode through the main menu. However, if you don't have the game, you can go to another link on the Microsoft Store to download it for free. You can find an entire section dedicated to the free-to-play game below with the download link. It'll take you to the Microsoft Store where you can download Call of Duty: Warzone.

Keep in mind that the file size on Xbox One X is almost 100 GB. Make sure you take into account bandwidth limitations when it comes to your internet provider. For example, my cap is 1 TB every month and I frequently exceed it.
