Call of Duty games have become notorious for requiring ridiculous amounts of storage space with each entry in the last few years, but as Activision recently promisedCall of Duty: Vanguard is going to address that issue (to some extent, at least), thanks to its usage of “new on-demand texture streaming tech”, which will reduce file sizes on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC by 30%-50%.

Now, they’ve also revealed exactly what the game’s file sizes will be across all consoles. You can find that info below:

  • PlayStation 5: 64.13 GB Download | 89.84 GB Required Space
  • PlayStation 4: 54.65 GB Download | 93.12 GB Required Space
  • Xbox Series X/S: 61 GB Download | 61 GB Required Space
  • Xbox One: 56.6 GB Download | 56.6 GB Required Space

Activision says players will also be able to manage storage space and reduce the game’s overall file size during or after the pre-load.

Speaking of pre-loads, Activision has also confirmed exact timings for when the game’s pre-loading will become available. Pre-loading on Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One begins on October 28 at 9 PM PT. In North and South America, for PS5 and PS4 pre-loading begins at the same time, and on October 29 midnight local time everywhere else.

Pre-loading on PC will begin on November 2, though exact details on the timings and the game’s PC system requirements across minimum, recommended, competitive, and Ultra 4K settings will be revealed “soon”.

Call of Duty: Vanguard launches for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on November 5.
