How to Download Modern Warfare 2 Campaign on PC and Console

0

Later today, on October 20, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will officially go live with the release of the Early Access campaign.

Players who have digitally pre-ordered any edition of MW2 will have access to the campaign one week before the full game launches on October 28. Before gamers can even think about playing Modern Warfare 2 campaign earlier, they will need to know how to download it.

This is the first time Activision has released the campaign earlier. It seems to be part of an effort to put more emphasis on the single player mode. Leaks have surfaced indicating that the campaign will also receive DLC for the first time. With more players jumping into the campaign due to the early access period, this DLC will naturally receive more attention.

If you are someone who is going to jump into the campaign, read below to find out how to download the mode in MW2.

Download Modern Warfare 2 campaign on PC

To be clear, downloading the game is similar to preloading. However, preloading only happens before the game goes live. If you are reading this article and still haven’t downloaded the campaign, preloading is no longer needed.

In this case, all you have to do is download it. If you’re on PC, you can do this quite easily. Below we explain how to download the campaign on Battle.Net and Steam.

Battle.Net

  • Open the Battle.Net Launcher
  • Go to the game page for MW2
  • Tap the blue Download button that appears at the bottom left

Steam

  • Open Steam
  • Tap on the “Games” tab and find Modern Warfare 2
  • Tap the blue Download button at the top left of the game page

Downloading the game will only grant players access to the campaign, not the full multiplayer mode. They’ll have to do a separate download for the full game at a later date, which you can read about in our previous article.

Download the Modern Warfare 2 campaign on Xbox and PlayStation

If you’re not on PC and instead play on Xbox or PlayStation, you can follow similar steps to download the campaign.

Xbox

  • Go to the Microsoft Store
  • Type Modern Warfare 2 in the search bar
  • If you digitally pre-ordered the game, you will see an option to download the campaign on the game’s store page

PlayStation

  • Access the PS Store
  • Type Modern Warfare 2 in the search bar
  • If you digitally pre-ordered the game, you will see an option to download the campaign on the game’s store page

As you can see, the process is exactly the same for both consoles. The campaign file size differs depending on your system, but generally it is around 25 GB. On Xbox you can download the entire MW2, which will preload all game assets, making your download most important. PlayStation players will also get this ability today.
