For anybody who already owns Modern Warfare, the first step is to make sure you have the full game downloaded. When you do, enter the main menu and Warzone will be an option, between multiplayer and Spec Ops.

If you don't own Modern Warfare, head to your respective store on consoles (PSN Store or Microsoft Store) and search for "Warzone". If you're on PC, make sure you have Battle.net installed and it should pop up as an option on the left-hand side in the list of games. Unfortunately for you, the file size will be 83-101GB because it includes a lot of Modern Warfare assets. Of course, that's quite a chunky download so make sure you're starting it as soon as you can, because it could take up to several hours depending on your service provider and bandwidth.

That's all there is to it! Call of Duty Warzone is entirely crossplay, so you can jump in with your pals no matter what system they're playing on. You can also find out more information in the official Activision blog post about Warzone.

One of the resident guide writers around these parts, give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1 2020, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager 2020, clicking on heads in Valorant, or mowing down hordes of enemies in Outriders.
