A year later, Call of Duty is back: Black Ops Cold War today exceeds 200 GB on consoles

All Game News

It was about a year ago when the call of Dutyat the time divided between Modern Warfare and the battle royale Warzone, began to protest over a problem of no small importance: the memory space required it was really over the top.

The situation began to be even paradoxical at the beginning of 2021, when, a few months after the release of Black Ops Cold War, it was Activision itself to warn PS4 and Xbox One users, stating that the only internal disc of memory of the 500 GB versions would no longer be enough to take advantage of the recent chapters of the series.

With the release of the next-gen consoles, however, it was thought that things would go to a general improvement, and that we could say goodbye to exorbitant requests – we remind you that in August 2020 on Modern Warfare the heaviest one was published patch never released in the history of video games.

Some interesting features concerning PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, for example, allow you to uninstall portions of the games that we no longer intend to use, but we also remember that the new generation consoles, thanks to the internal SSDs, can reduce file size. A quite enlightening example is that of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (50 GB on PS5, 52 GB on PS4), but we also remember Subnautica whose next-gen version on PlayStation consoles weighs 70% less than the PS4 version. .

Still, with Black Ops Cold War things have certainly not improved as players expected.

The user switchondem has decided to share his doubts about the optimization of Black Ops Cold War on Reddit by posting a screenshot from the storage section of his PlayStation 5. As you can also see below, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War takes up over 200GB on PS5, to be precise 219.8 GB. Considering that the usable internal memory of the new Sony console is approximately 664 GB (the 825 GB of the SSD must remove the space required by the system software and other features), the Black Ops Cold War alone occupies a third of the entire memory. of the console.

In the comments in response, users also point out that it is possible to reduce this size by removing some modes, such as the single player campaign, which alone allows you to lower the memory occupied to 154 GB.

Despite this, Black Ops Cold War is an extremely GB-intensive title on consoles and PCs, and this could push some players away from it, if only to be able to install new games on PS5 or other platforms.

This takes on even more “worrying” aspects if we think that the contents of Black Ops Cold War will grow again in the coming months. In July, for example, the full-bodied mid-Season 4 update with the new Zombies Mauer der Toten map, and many are already wondering how many GB more the game will occupy.

This game is now 219.8 GB on PS5, which has 667.2 GB of free console storage space to start with. The tech to compress it exists, but the file size just keeps increasing. from blackopscoldwar
