What is expected to be 2020’s biggest game, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, is releasing very, very soon. If you want to get started right away when the game unlocks on November 13, you’ll want to pre-load, and you can do that now on nearly every platform.
Pre-loading on PS4 and Xbox One started on November 5, and PC players were added to the pre-loading party on November 10. People picking up the game on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 can start pre-loading as soon as they get their console.
Pre-loading is a good idea, too, because Black Ops Cold War is a gigantic download. You can see the file sizes below.
