Season 3 Reloaded Update Preload

As pointed out by Charlie Intel, preload for the update is live for some players now.

As of the time of writing, however, not every PlayStation player has the ability to preload. The ability should be extended to everyone later on May 18, though.

To actually preload the Black Ops Cold War Season 3 Reloaded, you need to press Options with the game's tile selected, and then choose 'Check for Update'. Then, if it's available to you, the file will be added to your download list.


It won't actually install until 12am ET/5am BST on May 19, however. Then, the content should go live after the Warzone update is released later that day.

You should be able to check out all of the new content, hopefully including the Rambo skin, on May 20.

File Download Size

The preload has also revealed that the Black Ops Cold War Season 3 Reloaded's update download size comes in at 11GB.

Now, the remainder of the download sizes have been revealed. They are:

  • PS5: 10.3 GB
  • PS4: 7.1 GB
  • Xbox Series X|S: 13.1 GB
  • Xbox One: 8.3 GB
  • PC: 10.3 GB

It'll inevitably run through all of the new features that are coming as part of the update.
