How to preload Warzone 2 on Xbox & PlayStation
Xbox and PlayStation players can preload Call of Duty: Warzone 2 by searching for ‘Warzone 2.0’ through their Platforms store then pressing the ‘pre-install’ button, or by following these links: Xbox and PlayStation.
However, if you already own Modern Warfare 2 and have it downloaded, then you will have already preloaded Warzone 2. If you don’t want Warzone 2, then you can simply modify your install.
How to preload Warzone 2 on Battle.net
To preload Warzone 2 on Battle.net on PC, you just need to either search for Warzone 2.0 through the Store or follow this link.
Again, if you already have Modern Warfare 2 installed then Warzone 2 will have been preloaded already, and you simply need to wait until November 16 for the battle royale to go live.
How to preload Warzone 2 on Steam
Steam players can preload Warzone 2 by finding ‘Warzone 2.0’ in the store or by following this link, then hitting the ‘Pre-Load Game’ button.
Like all of the other platforms, if you already have Modern Warfare 2 bought and installed, then Warzone 2 will have already been preloaded ahead of Season 1 on November 16.
Warzone 2 preload file size
It was originally reported that Warzone 2 would have a 115 GB file size on Xbox, but players are finding that the preload is much smaller.
Here are some of the Warzone 2 pre-load file sizes that have been reported so far:
- Xbox: 6.2 GB
- PlayStation: 38.6 GB
- Battle.net: 17.4 GB
- Steam: 23.76 GB
The most likely scenario is that the preload is a barebones version of Warzone 2 that’s tied in with Modern Warfare 2’s files, and the size will shoot up once the Season 1 update is downloaded on November 16.
