Call of Duty: Vanguard console install sizes and pre-loading details confirmed
The World War II shooter will be released on November 5
Activision has confirmed how much storage space is required for Call of Duty: Vanguard on consoles and when players will be able to pre-load the game.
In a blog post revealing the game’s install size for each platform, the company claimed “new on-demand texture streaming tech” reduces the space needed by up to 50 percent compared to previous series entries on new-gen consoles and PC.
The following file size estimates include pre-loading and the disk space required to play the game:
- 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
Thanks to their many modes and frequent content updates, the previous two Call of Duty games, Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, have frequently hovered around 200GB in size on consoles.
Earlier this year, Activision acknowledged that when combined, Black Ops Cold War, Modern Warfare and Warzone may be too large to fit on a 500GB PS4.
Call of Duty: Vanguard is scheduled for release on November 5, 2021.
Pre-loading for PlayStation consoles starts on October 28 at 9pm PT in North and South America, and on October 29 at midnight local time in all other countries.
On Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, pre-loading will be available from October 28 at 9pm PT (October 29 at 5am BST).
Pre-loading for PC will begin on November 2. Further details, including minimum, recommended, and competitive PC specs, will be revealed in the coming days.
