Black Ops 3 PS4 Pre-load start time for UK, EU

By Alan Ng - Nov 3, 2015

We can see that there is a lot of confusion in the air at the moment as to the Black Ops PS4 preload start time for UK, EU Australia and other regions.

For some reason, it appears that Sony has run into problems with the Black Ops 3 PS4 preload download time and it has meant that those buying from Europe or Australia have had to wait longer than those in the US who are already preloading Black Ops 3 right now.

We can confirm that some gamers are already starting their BO3 preload on PS4 in the US as of October 30, as the confirmed file size is 12.5GB as seen by images supplied below.


For everyone else though, the wait goes on and we have conflicting reports on when different regions in Europe will be able to download their own file.

The German Call of Duty community manager has said here on Twitter that the Black Ops 3 preload for Germany should start on Tuesday November 3 which could mean any moment now.

However, the official AskPlayStation Twitter page has told one Black Ops 3 buyer that there has been a problem with the Black Ops 3 pre-load unavailable in UK and that it won’t start until November 5 – one day before release which is cutting it fine.


The worrying thing is that there doesn’t appear to be a definitive answer on the preload for Europe and more importantly – why Europe has to wait longer than America.

We’re sure that many of you are wondering the exact same thing so get in touch with us below on your thoughts on this.

Are you concerned over the lack of official information regarding the preload when there seems to be plenty of information when it comes to taking money for the different versions of the game plus all of the add-ons?
