Beginning Monday, August 3rd, PlayStation 4 players can pre-download the August update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, allowing players to avoid updating on the day of release and begin playing immediately after the update goes live on Wednesday, August 5th.
How does it work?
All PlayStation 4 players will be randomly separated into two groups to pre-download.
The first group will be able to begin pre-downloading on Monday, August 3rd, 48 hours before the update goes live.
The second group will be able to begin pre-downloading on Tuesday, August 4th, 24 hours before the update goes live.
If you have Automatic Downloads enabled on your PlayStation 4, your pre-download will begin automatically as long as your PlayStation 4 is turned on or in Rest Mode. Please note: Automatic Downloads is only available with PlayStation Plus.
If you have Automatic Downloads disabled, or your PlayStation 4 was turned off, follow these steps to manually initiate the pre-download:
- Highlight the Modern Warfare or Warzone tile on the PlayStation 4 homescreen.
- Press the Options button.
- Select Check for Updates.
