Preload Warzone Update 1.54 Now

As pointed out by Charlie Intel, PlayStation players can download the new Warzone patch now.

The changes won't actually go live yet, with it installable at 12pm ET/5pm GMT today, but you can get it downloaded ahead of time.

However, if you're on other platforms, you cannot download it yet. You'll likely have to wait until the time 1.54 can be installed, but we'll update you once it's live.


Download Size

On PlayStation, the new Warzone update is only 1GB in size, and it'll likely be around the same on Xbox and PC once it's live.

That being said, much like other updates, you'll need a lot more than 1GB of free space to download the game on console due to how PS4 file sizes work. You'll likely have to delete something (maybe Horizon Forbidden West is taking up space), download the patch, and then download the deleted game again.
