Activision today announced the official file size for the new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. You will have to reserve an enormous amount of storage space, especially on the next-gen consoles and the PC.
The successor to Modern Warfare will also push the storage space of your hard drive to the limit. Especially if you’re going to be playing on the upcoming PS5. A few hours ago, Activision announced on its in-house website how much file size the new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will take up on the various platforms.
- PS4: 95 GB
- PS5: 133 GB
- Xbox One: 93 GB
- Xbox Series: 136 GB
- PC: 125 GB (maximum graphics settings) / 82 GB (full game) / 35 GB (multiplayer)
If you have pre-ordered the game for PS4 or Xbox One, you can download it tomorrow morning. The preload will only be available on the PC from November 10th.
With well over 100 GB, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will take up a lot of storage space on the next-gen consoles and the PC. However, it is possible to delete individual parts of the game. This includes the campaign, through which around 42 GB can be released. If you delete all optional game content, you save a whole 62 GB. Otherwise, your hard drive could be quickly exhausted with such extensive games.
A short time beforehand, a packshot appeared that showed a huge file size of at least 285 GB. Apparently, in addition to Warzone, this information also includes planned future content.
A few months ago it was claimed by developers that the file sizes of future games should be smaller. The speed of the SSD hard drives can save certain assets. However, the higher texture resolutions and a better level of detail take up more space, which could neutralize this advantage.
In any case, it will be interesting to see how the file size of future titles will develop. Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be released on November 13th.
