Activision revealed the information Call of Duty fans have been eagerly waiting for - preload date and times for Vanguard, which are just around the corner.

Call of Duty: Vanguard is coming out on November 5, 2021, but if you pre-ordered the game, you will be able to preload it a week ahead. 

American players who have digital preorders on PlayStation 4 and 5 can start preloading on October 28, 2021, at 9:00 PM PT or midnight EDT. The rest of the world can start preloading on October 29 at midnight of the local time zone, which is technically earlier than the aforementioned Pacific Time, depending on where you live.

Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S owners can start preloading at 9:00 PM PT on October 28 globally. This translates to 5:00 AM BST / 6:00 AM CEST on October 29.

PC players will be able to preload from November 2 onwards and more information will become available at that time.

Download and required storage sizes will vary depending on your console as well as the generation:

  • PlayStation 4 - 54.65GB download and 93.12 GB required space
  • PlayStation 5 - 64.13GB download and 89.84 GB required space
