CoD: Warzone 2.0 Pre-Load Date and Time
The date when Warzone 2.0 will be available to pre-load has been announced alongside the time. Players can start pre-loading CoD: Warzone 2 starting Monday, November 14, 2022, at 13:00 ET/ 10:00 PT/ 18:00 BST.
The schedule applies to PlayStation, Xbox, and PC players. There will be a brief 48 hours window to download the game early before it drops on November 16th. You will have enough time to load it fully regardless of your network speed.
Remember that Warzone 2 will synergize with Modern Warfare 2. If you have both of them installed, you can seamlessly switch between the two titles. However, the experience won’t be affected if you have either of them.
Warzone 2 File Size: How Much Space is Needed to Download?
The exact file size for Warzone 2 isn’t available at the time of writing as the pre-loads are yet to go live. Once the process begins, we will figure out specifically how much space is needed on every platform.
For PS players who already have Modern Warfare 2 installed, the Warzone 2 files will need only another 3GB to install. However, if you don’t have the base files that are required, you will need to download around 40GB of data.
The additional files on Xbox are slightly larger at around 8GB and the size for PC players is unknown at this time. There have been several leaks hinting at a massive file size for the latest CoD edition.
