PC installation numbers have also been significantly reduced.
Activision has revealed when players can pre-load Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on all platforms. Pre-loading for PS4 and Xbox One players starts on November 5th at 9 PM PT while PC players will see it open up on November 10th, 10 AM PT. Xbox Series X/S and PS5 players will have to wait until their respective consoles launch for pre-load.
File sizes have also been revealed for consoles. PS4 players will need 95 GB while PS5 players require 133 GB. Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S players need 93 GB and 136 GB respectively. PC players were previously told to have 175 GB installation space for all modes (250 GB when running in at Ultra with RTX enabled).
But Activision has provided updated numbers for the same – 35 GB is needed for multiplayer, 82 GB for the full game and 125 GB to run all of it at Ultra settings. Across all versions, players will have the option to remove specific modes like the Campaign and Zombies to reduce overall file size. But remember that more storage space will be needed for future updates.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War releases on November 13th for Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
