Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a Whopping 130 GB on Next-gen

The next-gen version of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will take up at least 130GB of space on your PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.

If you own a Call of Duty game on console, you already know the games are enormous. They get even bigger when you install updates. For next-gen consoles, though, get ready to upgrade your internet plans. The latest Call of Duty would be even larger on the PS5 and Xbox Series X. 

Call of Duty: Hard Drive Space

Kotaku reports that the latest Call of Duty, Black Ops: Cold War, would take up more space on next-gen consoles. The report cites Activision, which reveals how much space you’ll need to pre-load the game. If you plan to buy the game, here’s what you need to know:

  •     PlayStation 4: 95GB
  •     PlayStation 5: 133 GB
  •     Xbox One: 93 GB
  •     Xbox Series X | S: 136 GB

That’s a lot of space. If you want to buy this game, prepare to set aside some hard drive space. Moreover, if you plan to buy a digital copy, get a faster connection to download this beast. 

How About Other Games?

According to Kotaku, Black Ops: Cold War on next-gen is bigger by 40 GB than its current-gen version. That’s still a mammoth game. For example, Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the PS5 is only 50 GB. 

What Can I Do?

If you’re on console, you can uninstall game modes to reduce the file size. On the other hand, PC players can uninstall everything but the multiplayer mode. That would leave them with a 35 GB install. Moreover, they can forgo ultra-graphics to get a total of 82 GB. 

However, PC gamers should free up at least 250 GB of space if they want to install everything.
