CoD: Modern Warfare doesn’t actually need 175GB at launch



For the most part, the game requires only a moderate gaming PC to run, however, one requirement stuck out to our tired eyes: the 175GB disk space requirement.

Activision has responded to concerns that Call of Duty: Modern Warfare requires 175GB of install space, a standout even among big AAA games, where 100GB is becoming more and more common for a single game.

As Eurogamer reports, while the storage requirement isn't a typo, Activision has since confirmed it's a recommendation rather than a requirement. In that, the publisher is including all content expected to be released post-launch.

Unfortunately, there's no indication as to exactly how much smaller that initial download will be, as the minimum and recommended specs still call for 175GB of drive space.

Over a quarter (26.8 per cent) of all undergraduates at Cambridge are now from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. The proportion of black students among Cambridge freshers reflects the United Kingdom population for the first time.

Activision lists an Intel Core i3-4340 and an AMD FX-6300 for the game's minimum CPU requirements.

If you're planning to play Modern Warfare, though, chances are you want to experience it with everything turned up to maximum. For that you'll need Windows 10, a Core i7-9700K or AMD Ryzen 2700X, 16GB of RAM, and a GeForce RTX 2080 Super. 175GB is the storage space we recommend players keep available in order to download the post-launch content we'll be bringing to Modern Warfare.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's PC file size at launch won't be as large as some fans initially thought, according to Charlie Intel.
