The recent Call of Duty games have been well known for their tremendous file sizes, but now Activision is finally doing something about it so that users no longer have to complain about having their hard drives filled up.
Moreover, the company announced that both Modern Warfare and the free-to-play Warzone will be much easier on hard drives. However, it is to be noted that the amount of storage used is dependent on what platform you would be playing the games on but they’ll be 30GB if they are the full versions.
The update is set to be released on March 30th, but while it may be easier on your hard drive, downloading it won’t be easy on your internet connection. Activision says the one-time Season Two Reloaded update will be larger than usual. The good news is that future updates shouldn’t be as big, but you will want to mind your data caps.
These space savings come from file optimizations and ‘streamlining content packs.’ It’s also worth noting that individual content packs can be removed, getting rid of game modes you don’t play. For example, you can uninstall single-player and Special Ops if you only fire up Call of Duty to play with friends.
Below you can see, which game takes up how much storage for what console:
|Platform||Warzone Only||Warzone + Modern Warfare|
