Call Of Duty: Warzone Gets A New Season And Slightly Smaller Install Size

We've poked fun at the install size of Call of Duty in the past, especially if you only want to play the free-to-play battle royale Warzone, for which you'll still need to reserve about 100 GB of space on your hard drive or SSD. Treyarch has made it a little easier to stuff all that onto your computer, with a file size reduction coming alongside today's Season Two Reloaded patch.

Warzone players can try out two new Operators, bayou-bred stalker Terrell Wolf and Nicaraguan guerilla fighter Karla Rivas, who come in separate bundles in the store. The ZRG 20mm Sniper Rifle has a fast reload speed and can be picked up via an in-game challenge or a bundle in the shop. If you haven't spent enough on those bundles, there are ... even more bundles you can buy! That includes the "Dragon’s Greed" bundle, which includes two legendary weapon blueprints and a legendary Bulldozer skin.

While our criticisms of Warzone's relative lack of in-game rewards are still valid, our criticisms of their install size is somewhat less so. Through "data optimization and streamlining content packs needed for individual game modes," the solo Warzone install will shrink by 10.9 GB to 14.2 GB, while the Modern Warfare/Warzone combo will shrink by 30.6 GB to 33.6 GB, depending on your platform. Doing so will require a chonky, one-time 52.0 GB to 57.8 GB download for Warzone players, but at least that, and a little more, will be freed up after the install is complete.

REPOST DIRECTED. :)

I don’t think they need to worry about game file sizes.
PCgamers are mostly well prepared for this with the all the amazing advancements in tech and motherboard m2 slots. Basically we are capable to serve. I do not see this file size as problem.
It is nice of them to think of us though.
PC Gamers have always been fully equipped and ready as we know we can CUSTOMiZE.
