Name of Obligation: Warzone followers do not have a lot to get enthusiastic about in tomorrow’s midseason replace. Whereas Black Ops – Chilly Struggle is getting new maps and modes, Warzone followers are getting a sniper rifle and some new operators. However that does not imply that our laborious drives are protected—tomorrow’s Warzone patch is a whopping 133GB obtain should you even have Fashionable Warfare put in. If not, you are in barely higher form.
Listed below are the obtain sizes, as outlined in at present’s weblog put up:
- PC: 52.4 GB (Warzone Solely) / 133.6 GB (Warzone and Fashionable Warfare)
- PlayStation 5/PlayStation 4: 52.0 GB
- Xbox Collection X / Collection S / One: 57.8 GB
So, what offers and why does Activision hate my SSD? Downloads are greater this time round as a result of the general sizes of Warzone and Fashionable Warfare are shrinking. As soon as the mud has settled, Warzone will shrink by 11.8GB and Fashionable Warfare by round 30GB. Extra free area is sweet, however gamers ought to critically contemplate if it is price preserving Fashionable Warfare up to date should you’re not taking part in it a lot as of late (particularly in case your ISP has a strict knowledge cap). You may minimize your obtain in half by uninstalling the Fashionable Warfare chunk earlier than the patch drops tomorrow evening at 11PM PDT.
That mentioned, even 52GB is rather a lot to swallow for an replace that provides nothing of word to Warzone. Activision’s up to date Season 2 roadmap has a single field for Warzone that mainly says “extra zombies, child.” Cool, I suppose. Warzone’s zombie presence has been one of the crucial disappointing map adjustments within the sport since its launch. There’s apparent potential for widespread zombie antics in Verdansk that Activision should act on sooner or later, however for now, zombies are a boring distraction that migrate from city to city like a flock of birds.
Hopefully, a few of this obtain has to do with Warzone’s long-rumored new map, which is able to probably incorporate current areas from Chilly Struggle’s Fireteam maps.
Information is a bit higher on the Chilly Struggle entrance, which is getting a brand new Outbreak map (Sanitorium), just a few new maps, remixed modes, a brand new sniper rifle, and some operators that can even work in Warzone. All of that for an extra 8GB on PC. Even when Name of Obligation is small, it is nonetheless fairly huge.
