Activision has shared an in-depth guide to the Call of Duty: Vanguard file size and pre-load process. The publisher has detailed when players can start downloading the game ahead of the 5 November release date and how big it is across various platforms.

First off, Call of Duty: Vanguard is under 100GB on all consoles. Activision promised that the game is 30% – 40% smaller across platforms and they kept its word. Sure, you still need around 60 – 93GB of free space depending on your platform but you can also go ahead and delete some of the game’s modes after it launches on 5 November. This will help reduce the game size even more.
