Call of Duty Vanguard, the latest entry in the long-running franchise, will launch worldwide on November 5. The developer of the game has revealed tons of information about the PC version of the game.

Preload and PC Features

The COD support studio, Beenox, is responsible for the PC port. Vanguard will feature ultrawide support, customizable options, and reduced input latency. It will also support both Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR. So, turn them on to get a free performance boost.

The developer has also announced that the preload for the game is now available. We recommend that you download Vanguard in advance so you can play directly when the game launches.

Game File Size

Thankfully, the size of the game is reasonable this time around. You only need 36 GB of free storage space for multiplayer and zombie mode. However, if you want the single-player campaign as well, prepare 61 GB of free storage space. Additional storage is required if you install the Hi-Rez Assets Cache.
