The next Black Ops Cold War title update, ushering in Season 4 Reloaded, is going to be a big one! There's a lot of content coming, even without Mauer Der Toten and the update to Zombies. Rush is finally joining the Multiplayer map rotation alongside new game modes, new weapons, and more. Here's when you can preload the next Black Ops Cold War update in preparation for all of this!

Update Preload Times & Download Size

Black Ops Cold War's next title update is going to be available to download on all platforms from around 09:00 PST / 12:00 EST / 17:00 BST on July 13th. This gives you about two days to download and install it if you want to play Black Ops Cold War Season 4 Reloaded as soon as you can.

How much space are you going to need, though? Well... Here's how big the update should be based on what platform you play on.

  • PlayStation 5: 17.9 GB
  • PlayStation 4: 14.5 GB
  • Xbox Series X / Xbox Series S: 21.3 GB
  • Xbox One: 11.4 GB
  • PC: 13.0 GB (without HD Pack) / 21.2GB (with HD Pack)

It's worth noting that you may also need to keep a bit of extra space free to allow for Black Ops Cold War's Update Copying Process.

When Does Season 4 Reloaded Start?

To follow on from this, Black Ops Cold War's Season 4 Reloaded update is due to arrive fully on July 15th. We're expecting all the content to become available from as early as 00:00 PST / 03:00 EST / 08:00 BST on the release date. This could be delayed slightly, but when you preload the Black Ops Cold War update it should tell you that you can install it at around 05:00 BST on July 15th.

The Main Quest in Mauer Der Toten isn't going to be live yet and we're not expecting the Playlist Update to go live until the evening, but you should be able to check out Mauer Der Toten, the new Multiplayer Map, and find the new Operator Bundles in the in-game Store from then.
