Call of Duty: Vanguard Preloading is Now Available Ahead of Release

Call of Duty: Vanguard, this year’s big new Call of Duty title, is due to release later this week, on the 5th of November. Ahead of that date, gamers who want to avoid painful download times on launch day would be wise to pre-load, and that option is now available for anybody who has pre-ordered the game.

Call of Duty: Vanguard Preload Details

Anybody who has pre-ordered a digital copy of Call of Duty: Vanguard can now pre-load the game before its release. As of today, this option is available across every platform, including PC. This means that, if you haven’t yet done so, you still have a couple more days in which to preload Call of Duty: Vanguard. Of course, with a release as large as that of a new Call of Duty, the servers are likely to be overloaded on launch day, making slow download times a very high probability.

Something which is likely to be welcome news to gamers on every platform is that Call of Duty: Vanguard’s download size will actually be somewhat smaller than other recent Call of Duty titles. Of course, this is something which is likely to shift over time. However, at least for now, the file sizes are as follows:

  • PlayStation 4: 54.65 GB download, with 93.12 GB required space.
  • PlayStation 5: 64.13 GB download, with 89.84 GB required space.
  • Xbox One: 56.6 GB download, with 56.6 GB required space.
  • Xbox Series X/S: 61 GB download, with 61 GB required space.
  • PC: The exact download size details have not yet been confirmed for PC.

Activision has yet to confirm the full PC specs for Call of Duty: Vanguard. However, the publisher has promised that minimum, recommended, competitive, and Ultra 4K spec details will be released soon. (Prior to launch day, that is.) As such, PC gamers should expect to see those within the next day or two.
