Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War takes up 250GB on PC, multiplayer is 50GB
Activision has revealed exactly how much space the new Call Of Duty will take up on a PC hard drive, with consoles likely to be similar.
If you’re looking to get this year’s Call Of Duty then you’re going to need 250GB of hard drive space for the PC version, according to the latest information from Activision.
That assumes you install the full game using the highest quality assets, but it can be reduced to 175GB if you don’t intend to run the game at 4K.
That’s likely to be the same sort of size the current gen versions will take up, but the next gen PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will probably be closer to the maximum PC install.
Activision know fans aren’t happy with the amount of space the game is takes up, so there’ll be an option right from the start to just install the multiplayer and that’ll only take up 50GB.
That doesn’t include the story campaign, Zombies, or Warzone, so it’s really just a fraction of the whole game. Also, new content will constantly be released for the game, so even that 50GB total will quickly begin to increase.
There’s been a lot of concern that the SSDs for both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S are too small, but short of making the consoles themselves much more expensive there’s not much Sony or Microsoft can do about that.
Whether Activision and other companies could do more to reduce the size of installs is more open to question but dividing games up like this is likely to become commonplace in the next generation.
As for Call Of Duty: Warzone, which is also available separately as a free-to-play title, that will be integrated with Cold War in December.
Warzone has been teasing the release of Cold War for months now but rather than the two games fully converging at launch it will be the start of season one that will see Warzone complete the break from last year’s Modern Warfare.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, and PC.
