Name of Obligation: Warzone followers do not have a lot to get enthusiastic about in tomorrow’s midseason replace. Whereas Black Ops – Chilly Battle is getting new maps and modes, Warzone followers are getting a sniper rifle and some new operators. However that does not imply that our exhausting drives are secure—tomorrow’s Warzone patch is a whopping 133GB obtain if you happen to even have Trendy Warfare put in. If not, you are in barely higher form.
Listed below are the obtain sizes, as outlined in as we speak’s weblog publish:
- PC: 52.Four GB (Warzone Solely) / 133.6 GB (Warzone and Trendy Warfare)
- PlayStation 5/PlayStation 4: 52.zero GB
- Xbox Collection X / Collection S / One: 57.eight GB
So, what provides and why does Activision hate my SSD? Downloads are greater this time round as a result of the general sizes of Warzone and Trendy Warfare are shrinking. As soon as the mud has settled, Warzone will shrink by 11.8GB and Trendy Warfare by round 30GB. Extra free area is good, however gamers ought to severely take into account if it is value preserving Trendy Warfare up to date if you happen to’re not taking part in it a lot nowadays (particularly in case your ISP has a strict information cap). You possibly can reduce your obtain in half by uninstalling the Trendy Warfare chunk earlier than the patch drops tomorrow night time at 11PM PDT.
That mentioned, even 52GB is quite a bit to swallow for an replace that provides nothing of be aware 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 recreation 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 doubtless incorporate present areas from Chilly Battle’s Fireteam maps.
Information is a bit higher on the Chilly Battle entrance, which is getting a brand new Outbreak map (Sanitorium), a number of 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 massive.
