After being rumoured to take up somewhere in the range of 250GB of storage space on certain platforms, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s true storage cost for every platform has been revealed in a blog post published by Activision overnight. While it isn’t that big, it’s still pretty big.
After the size of Modern Warfare continued to balloon over the last year, there were fears that Black Ops Cold War might reach the originally rumoured number. Fortunately, it’s about half of that amount if you’re playing on next-gen consoles, although it’s still a painful price to pay on what is limited hard drive space at launch.
CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS COLD WAR HARD DRIVE SPACE REQUIRED:
PlayStation 4 – 95GB
PlayStation 5 – 133GB
Xbox One – 93GB
Xbox Series X/S – 136GB
PC – 35GB for multiplayer, 82GB for the full game, 125GB for the full game with ultra RTX specs
All of the PC’s specifications and requirements can be found below.
Of course, both console and PC users can uninstall parts of the game, like the campaign or the Zombies mode, in an effort to conserve hard drive space. And, of course, it’s worth mentioning the graphic notes that “additional storage space will be required for mandatory game updates” so, like Modern Warfare, it might be likely that for the file size of Black Ops Cold War to become a next-gen headache for some.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War releases on November 13 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.
