Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s release date is right around the corner and Activision has some good news for players who have already put a pre-order in.

Activision has also suggested that console players have the latest firmware updates before attempting to pre-load Cold War from the respective stores.

Another great bit of news from Activision was the revised system storage requirements for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War across platforms and the ability for players to choose between the required modes during installation. More details about the pre-loading and file sizes can be found over here.

File Size Details:

  • PlayStation 4: 95 GB available space

  • Xbox One: 93 GB available space
  • Xbox Series X/S: 136 GB available space

Console players can uninstall specific game modes such as Zombies and Campaign by going into the Account & Network section, which can be found in-game. On the other hand, PC players will have the options to choose between specific modes before downloading Cold War. Additionally, Cold War will receive future updates that will require more storage space, so make sure your hard drive has over 200 GB to spare.
