UPDATE: It appears that Activision and Xbox have taken Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 off the Xbox One store, and as of right now, players are unable to preorder the title digitally on Xbox One. The description of the game now says ‘Available at your local retailer for preorder.’ 

Players can still preorder the game digitally on PS4 and on Steam for PC.

We’ll update once we get more information from Activision. 

Original Story: 

We’re getting multiple reports on Twitter that users are now able to start pre-loading Black Ops 3 on Xbox One. If you’ve already preordered the title digitally on Xbox One, going to Games and Apps, you should see that it asks you to manage 44.9 GB of Black Ops 3. It should give you the option to install that file (as seen in the image above), if it didn’t do it automatically. 

The game will unlock at midnight local time on November 6, and if you’re in North America, it will unlock at midnight EST on November 6. 

We’re awaiting full confirmation about this. Stay tuned. 

No details yet have been revealed on when PS4 and PC players will be able to pre-load Black Ops 3. Stay tuned.

    I hope they don’t do this on playstation until at least after the 1st November. I won’t have the money on my account till then 🙁

    • Kobrah

      You will be able to download it anytime before release

      • drjakeyoung

        Will they charge my account if i download it?

        • Hesham Elbahrawi

          You will be able to buy the game off the PSN store anytime, but you wont be able to download the game until you purchase the game

        • Kobrah

          I preordered on PS4 and haven’t been charged for the game yet, not sure how it works for XB though

  • Daniel Pfuelb

    I am so excited. Mine just started downloading 🙂

  • Guywithbrains

    Now brace yourselves because last time people pre-loaded Advanced Warfare they got access to some files and leaked stuff.

    • TG Frontliner

      Fingers crossed. Can’t say I know how people manage to dig into the files on console though.

      • Guywithbrains

        I am pretty sure someone spoils campaign and it’s ending. Also it is highly possible someone gets access to multiplayer and Zombies files too.

        But if we surf much in the internet I am unfortunately sure we can’t prevent seeing leaked stuff because they are going to be everywhere.

    • just drank bleach

      Can’t blame anyone but themselves, still 1 more month till the game releases, someone will leak something by then, look what happened when the beta went to pc and xbox.

      • RdJokr

        The thing is, when PC players get to preload the game, the files will be encrypted, so there’s no way for us PC guys to leak anything.

        Console guys, on the other hand, get the game early every time, and guess where the leaks come from?

      • Brian

        The PC files will be encrypted. Good luck trying to get pass the encryption.

  • I’m hoping after pre-loading it, it doesn’t have to pre-load again on the release date. That happened to me when AW was released.

    • Felipe Rios

      That sucks. I’m glad I didn’t have that issue. *fingers crossed*

    Can you still buy BO3 off of Xbox One’s Marketplace?

    Multi-BILLION dollar company. Microsoft has tens to hundreds of billions of dollars in income. They’re the worst company in history, and, due to their size, cannot be defended, which is why I find it illogical to defend anything that they do.

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] MichiganerE a month ago
    Nah, because of the “this is a CoD website” bullshit excuse. What does everyone expect me to do? Praise all Call of Duty games? It’s not even my favorite franchise, in fact, it is WAY down my list. It’s not even in the top 100.

          COD is simple and so is the community, it’s going to take a lot to convince people to give it up. Yes, the COD formula is extremely repetitive, but most of us don’t care. We like the structure of the game. Simple, easy to jump into multiplayer, a kickass zombies mode, and a mildly interesting campaign. Yes, COD needs to improve. They are still using the old quake engine, and Activision probably will milk the game dry before they release a new engine. But your negativity is what ruins the COD community, we enjoy this simple game, however, it would be a miracle if we could all get together and protest some of the b.s. Activision gets away with. You are simply hating, you fail to offer a solution, or any control.

          I probably just fueled another debate! ?

          • IE: Were shit, but we don’t care.

            Nice argument, especially when you decided to write a whole book defending yourself, even through you dont care.

          • Stealthninja808

            Simple doesn’t equal shit. In everyday life we enjoy the simple things, surfing the web, hanging out with friends, listening to music, etc. Correct me if I am wrong, perhaps you enjoy complex things all the time. Nowhere did I state the game was shit, I did state Activision pulls of alot of B.S. that is holding back the game from advancing to current technology. My argument stands: COD is simple, it has obvious problems, but the quality of its simplicity attracts players. What I am trying to say is, we tolerate the issues because we enjoy the simplicity of the Game. we being the COD community. I was mispoken before, its not that “the game is shit and we dont care”, rather, ” we enjoy the game for what it is and tolerate the glaring problems” , i can make this parallel to the BF4 community.

Games shouldn’t still be developed for them. They don’t even perform well. Those consoles were good for their time, now they’re just a nuisance.

    • Stealthninja808

      How about posting something relevant to the subject at hand for once? It may have been funny yesterday, but now it’s just getting old, and needless to say, irrelevant. We just want to talk Call of Duty, not revive old arguments from months ago. Just please stop spamming the comment board already.

      • BradyAlucard’s Brain

        You’re right.

        Why does XB1 get preload access first? Microsoft are a dastardly bunch of scoundrels. Getting pre load access so early ruins the gaming industry.

        Too bad these immature kid fanboys blindly support them.

            I’m sorry you wasted your money on a piece of crap made by one of the worst companies in the world – Sony.

            Doesn’t mean you have to hate on people who made the correct choice and bought the correct console – the xbox one.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Yea so uncharted God of war can beat pretty much any exclusive on gaybox one, now go cry in your room

          • XboxWon

            You do know that Sony has came out and said the ps4 basically has no exclusives right?

            Earlier this year, PlayStation president Andrew House admitted that the PlayStation 4’s first-party games lineup for this holiday was “a little sparse.” Now, another PlayStation executive, Shuhei Yoshida, has spoken out to say that Sony has “work to do” to bring more big-time AAA exclusives to the platform.

          • levi

            God of war is a Devil May Cry game with less skill and more button mashing uncharted is a tomb raider knock off with a guy protagonist.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            No, devil may cry is soo different and God of war is better, uncharted is better than tomb raider, if you’re comparing from the third person view thingy, that’s like saying cod is the same as battlefield

          • miguel ledezma

            Dude halo. Forza . Ea acess wtf are you talking about.

            No actually. Hmmm I’m trying to think of a channel but no one ready zoomed in. It just has the same effect as if you’re aiming down sight with a dmr or br depending on the variant

        Good things.

  • The Flash

    Thank fuck, downloads and install take forever on the Xbone, and with everyone else doing it at the same time, i was worried if this wasnt allowed earlier enough, there would be no way i could play it on the 6th.

    • Scott

      I know Microsoft was trying to fix that issue , just hoping it the update comes out next month

    • Vicsupreme

      Nah, it’s connection dependent. I can download AW in less than an hour (no I don’t play AW)

      • The Flash

        i have a good connection, just installing some of the AW DLCs took over half the day

        • jt3z

          Sure its not your internet connection? I have both a ps4 and Xbox 1 and it took the same amount of time to download the beta on both

          • The Flash

            yes because downloading the same file size on my PC would be considerably quicker than how long it takes on the Xbone, and as someone else has said, it is a problem that microsoft are aware of (though have done little to fix so far).

      I know your pain. I upgraded my plan a little bit today up to 12mbps(Yes still slow af) as my are cant handl anything more but hopefully they install the new servers(or w/e u call them) in my area soon so i can get faster speeds

  • Trinityvitaliaty

    I think they want stuff to be “leaked” every year escpecially wen its this close,it proves to be an effective format to build the hype.

  • Michael Romo

    Why does it make any sense to pre-load a game that you can’t play for a month?

    • Stefan Lang

      To have it ready at launch day lol.

      • lunator100hd .

        Yeah but why a month before it is actual available for play.

        • Merkgruber4

          Some people have slow internet. Really slow internet.

          • lunator100hd .

            If you need a 1 month to download 45gb you souldnt bought it digitally in the first place.

        • Stefan Lang

          It saves the pain of having to download and install for hours on launch day vs having it ready to go at 12:01am launch day.

  • Fuck-Off

    And on PS4? Why only on Xone when PS4 will have all early dlc and stuff?

    • The Journey Mun

      Because it doesn’t release until November 6th? Fucking idiot

      • LEL

        but november 6th was larst year so it should work now and ive preloaded so it should play

      • XboxWon

        Enjoy being a beta tester 🙂

        • Mr_ysi42t96

          So the preload now is that you are being tested right ?

          • XboxWon

            No, the preload shows that obviously Activision cares way more about real gamers – aka the ones who own and xbox one.

            I’m sure you ps4 guys will get it whenever Activision feels like giving it to you.. because they can’t take you guys seriously.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Nah that’s not true since ps4 got to preload AW last year before Xbox one, check your facts smart ass

          • XboxWon

            Yeah.. AW – one of the worst CODs to date.

            No wonder they wanted you guys to preload it first. They knew us real gamers wouldn’t like it.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            Really -_- they would sell a game that they knew people would hate, nice

          • ScOott

            Please stop.

            Lol yea what ever makes you love your console

          • XboxWon

            actually I own both a ps4 and xbox one. I just like seeing people like you get all worked up.

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            I’m actually okay not mad at all

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            No you don’t. That is the oldest console war trick in the book. Pretend to own both consoles to seem objective and bolster your arguments. As if having both Xbox and Playstation makes you any less biased anyway.

            Otherwise you’d have a PlaystationWon account too.

          • ScOott

            He is clearly a troll, do u honestly think he believes everything he says ? .. Don’t turn you’re self into a fanboy to feed a troll, I used to do the same with mr Brady, and got dubbed an xbox fan boy, because he used to bang on about how godly his ps4 was and how bad Microsoft are .. just leave fanboys to be fanboys they will learn one day..

            Are you bragging about what console gets to PRELOAD a game that isnt out for 29 days?

            Your parents lost by not giving you up for adoption.

            are you taking everything I say seriously?

            Your parent lost by not giving you a brain.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Jesus gave me my brain thank you very much.

            Joking or not you believe what you say. Quit play biased AND unbiased at the same time.

            You came here looking for console war, no one is really giving you one now it is all lulz eh. Gotcha

          • XboxWon

            Do you not see all the replies I got out of Mr_ysi42t96? I guess not.

    • 720p ROFL

      Saving the best to last. Xbox One gamers couldn’t even download the beta without deleting their friends list or changing location to Japan so doing a preload 30 days early to ensure the dodgy XBL servers can cope is a wise idea. It’s nice to know that the PS4 exclusive is in such good hands that we don’t need to worry about laughable issues like these.

      • Koolz

        Lolwut? Although the Xbox One beta wasn’t perfect, no need to be a fanboy and hate. You just make yourself look dumb.

      • jt3z

        Funny thing is i had no problem downloading on the Xb1. Get over this console war crap kid youll feel better

  • ScOott

    Isn’t there a playground for these guys to keep arguing about ps4 and xbox one :-/ ..

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      Agreed. This is probably the most useless console war debate in console history.

      “I get to stare at the screen of a game I cant play for 29 days before you get to, suck it!”

      • ScOott

        Lol I don’t.. I know how easy it is to get baited into an argument.. Happens to me all the time ?

        • Mr_ysi42t96

          Yea I’ve been watching since ghosts lol

          • ScOott

            ? maybe I will learn …. One day.. *face palm*

          • Mr_ysi42t96

            I think you’re doing the right thing anyways

  • Myth

    Says I can install it, 44.9GB. Yet when I install it, it takes about 2 seconds to install which means it’s not installing the entire game yet.

    • XboxWon

      It’s probably a placeholder for the game.

  • Matt White

    Pre ordered, but I can’t download game yet? Anyone else have problems?

    Oh lord, here is objective console talk for that Xbox troll

    Just like the easily-ripped DS4 thumbsticks, any issue was fixed.
    I got my PS4 around March last year. Don’t really regret it, because I wasn’t forced to buy a console with a camera that did nothing.

    Awesome. Just awesome. PS4’s 2016 lineup is unrivaled. And this coming out this November was unexpected.

    You need to shut up about this fanboy shit. Look at your own comments before you accuse, you hypocrite. Xbox One has been dry this year. That is FACT. PC counts as a platform. That is FACT. I’m right. You’re wrong. Get over it. Just because I have a preference, doesn’t mean that I’m a fanboy

    Their community is riddled with moronic Xbox fanboys and they take bribes to overrate games.

    PS3 is the better console, to me. Even though it’s slow, o think you’ll love it. Let me know if you need something to play.

    PS3 is arguably the best console ever made. Although it’s a bit of a bold claim, because I love gaming in general, but still.

    Xbox One’s CPU gap is about 6-9%. PS4’s GPU/RAM gap is about 50%.

    “Fan of Microsoft” lol why? I’m no SCE fan, I’m a PlayStation fan. Fuck the companies that manufacture consoles, they don’t care about us.

    BradyAlucard[sillibk] noahgoa a month ago
    As someone who can’t stand Microsoft and the Xbox brand. I think the Xbox One is a pretty okay console. I don’t want to say it’s a “bad” console, because it’s far too insulting and fanboyish.

    • YoungMurf

      How can you be bothered to look back at old articles and re-state everything this guy says? Surely you have something better you can do..

      • Koolz

        Well it’s kind of funny to see people make idiots out of themselves by posting comments like these, and this guy just compiled them.

  • How in the fuck do I pre-load it? I bought the Digital Deluxe edition, and I can’t see pre-load anywhere.

    • MugsMan

      I uninstalled the 100mb preorder thing on ‘my games and apps’ then reinstalled it. But it said that there is 49.8gb to install but it only installed the 100mb thing again. But maybe its just me

  • Slash (SJS)

    This is pretty cool.

  • The Flash

    i was gonna get digital deluxe but now i cant buy it on xbone store

  • Sam

    If the only option for the digital pre-order is to uninstall it, does that mean the game is already pre-loaded?

  • I don’t know what’s more concerning…the amount of garbage and vitriol being spewed on CI, or the effort people go to to copy and paste that garbage and post it all again.

  • Helldriver Phoenix

    9 days later. Any new intel Charlie regarding the PS4 preload date? Thx

    • Stefan Lang

      I think its November 3rd or 4th, I think that was for PS3 though but I would assume its the same for PS4 since its Sony.

  • daFox

    I’m preloading games as I type this. You CAN now pre load Black Ops 3 full game!

  • da Fox

    I pre-loaded full game for X1 last Sunday

  • Enrique Bernal

    Didn’t they say the exclusivity was for PS4 first? I’m still waiting dammit!
