Warzone Season 3 Reloaded Update Preload Now Live

Ahead of all the content going live in-game tomorrow morning, some players can now preload the Warzone Season 3 Reloaded update.

The 80s Action Heroes Event, which is what the mid-season update is called, adds new weapons, Operators, and points of interest to the battle royale.

Warzone Season 3 Reloaded Update Preload

As is always the case, PlayStation players are the only ones who will be able to preload the update.

Also, the preload ability is slowly rolling out too. So, while a lot of players should be able to preload the Warzone update now, others will have to wait until later this afternoon.

Rest assured, though, all PlayStation Warzone players will be able to preload the new mid-season update today.

To check if you're able to, head to the Warzone tile on your system, press Options, and then select 'Check for Update'. If the update is available, it will be added to your downloads list.


Then, you'll have to wait until 12am ET/5am BST on May 20, at which point the update you preloaded will install.

Players on other systems will have to wait until that same time to download the update and install it. They cannot preload it at all.

File Download Size

As for how big the Season 3 Reloaded update will be, we've got everything you need to know below.

  • PlayStation 5: 14.6 GB
  • PlayStation 4: 14.6 GB
  • Xbox One Series X / Xbox One Series S: 15.2 GB
  • Xbox One: 15.2 GB
  • PC: 14.9 GB (Warzone Only) / 18.1 GB (Warzone and Modern Warfare)

It's worth noting that the overall file size of Warzone shouldn't increase by the same amount on your system. It'll likely not even increase at all.

While you'll need a lot of space on your system to download the update, the update won't take up much additional space.
