Call of Duty: Vanguard PC Trailer, Specs, and Preloading
Monday, 01 November 2021

In four days, on November 5, Call of Duty: Vanguard will finally be available to players all over the world. In partnership with Sledgehammer Games, Call of Duty PC lead developer Beenox shared their joint commitment to making this game an incredible experience no matter what system you play on.

Here is what Beenox broke down within the official Vanguard PC trailer:

PC Preloading

All players who pre-purchased the game digitally on can preload the title so they’re ready to play the moment the game goes live.

Preloading for PC begins on November 2 at 10 AM PT. If you purchased a digital version of the game but it does not download during the preload period, find Vanguard under “Partner Games” in the Launcher and follow the prompts to begin the download.
