Obligations: Black Ops Cold War, Modern war, Y War zone they are too big to live with a standard PS4 hard drive, Activision announced today.
Wednesday night, last year Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War saw your Season 2 update. This update is 10.5 to 26.5 GB of data depending on the platform. This is notable as it officially increased the file size for Modern warfare, war zone, Y Black Ops Cold War To a new milestone: all three games no longer fit on a single 500GB PlayStation 4 hard drive.
The Call of Duty file size issue isn’t exactly new, but it takes the issue to a new level. And while you may be wondering “why would anyone want three different Call of Duty games on their console at once?” Consider how many modes each game offers. The multiplayer ecosystem between both games is independent, Black Ops Cold War includes a Zombies mode and campaign, and War zone it is its own way entirely. Hardcore Call of Duty fans who have already dedicated all of their internal storage to the last two games in the series will no longer be able to do so.
Fortunately, there are a few solutions to this problem, although none that allow players to retain all the data at once. Players can navigate the menus of each game and remove unwanted content, such as Zombies or the campaign. This should free up some space, but it doesn’t help the player who is still working on the campaign in their spare time between zombies, multiplayer, and War zone sessions with your friends. However, unless that player is actively jumping between Black Ops Cold War Y Modern war multiplayer, one of them should be completely safe to remove, especially considering Modern Warfare is almost two years old.
It’s unclear if Activision, Infinity Ward, Raven, and Treyarch will ever find a better solution to the storage wars. But at this rate, the steady growth of Call of Duty seems unsustainable, especially for older console players with smaller units.
