The file sizes of “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” updates this year were so ridiculous that they have become an ongoing online joke.
With each update, console users have to make difficult choices about what to remove to free up space. This week’s season 5 download is no exception to that trend.
It is therefore a good thing that “Warzone” is such a popular game mode for fans of the “Call of Duty” franchise. If it wasn’t that addictive, it would be hard to justify the file requirements.
Here’s what you need to know about the Season 5 update file size for “Warzone”, as well as ways to minimize the headache of downloading:
When will ‘Warzone’ season 5 be released?
Activision plans to release season 5 on August 5 at 2 p.m. ET.
What is the file size for ‘Warzone’ season 5?
The expected file size are as follows:
- PlayStation 4: 36 GB
- Xbox One: 49.8 GB
- PC: 54.2 GB
Do you need to free up console space for the new ‘Call of Duty’ update?
If you’re running low on space already, the Season 5 download can cause problems. However, once installed, Activision said that “Warzone” could actually be smaller in total size than before, meaning you can re-download what you need to temporarily remove.
Can you reduce the file size of ‘Call of Duty’?
If you have the full “Call of Duty” title but are not currently interested in multiplayer or campaign, try removing those files while keeping “Warzone” intact. Activision separates the files from the game to allow users to decide what they want.
