Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2's campaign for early access users is right around the corner. Players can now pre-load the game on all platforms including Steam,, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

The size of Call of Duty games is one complaint that has never gone away, with the combination of Modern Warfare 2019 and Warzone taking up more than 200GB on users' hard drives at one point. However, the latest Call of Duty installment size is smaller than expected, which is excellent news for players.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 campaign will be playable in less than 24 hours

The pre-load was made available worldwide today, October 19, at 10 AM PT, and players on all platforms can now start downloading the game.

The campaign will be made available for all pre-access players on all platforms on October 20, at 10 AM PT.

Modern Warfare 2 on PC is available on two platforms, and the total size is slightly higher on the version. Players who pre-ordered the game on can pre-load the campaign only and will have to download a total of 34.6GB.


Currently, on PC, Modern Warfare 2 pre-access players can only pre-load the campaign rather than other packs as well.
