Sony PlayStation is allowing users to pre-load Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone’s Season 5 update ahead of its launch.
The update, which is version 1.24, started to roll out across PS4 platforms for some users overnight on August 3 on their PlayStation 4 console.
The patch update is a 36GB download, but players cannot install the actual update until August 4 at 11PM PT / August 5 at 2AM ET.
This is the the first time Sony is allowing such a thing for a patch update on their platform, as in the past users have to wait for the actual update to go live in order to start downloading and then playing it.
Infinity Ward mentioned that the Season 5 update is a large update file but once the install is done, the overall games size will reduce on the consoles.
