The PC version of Modern Warfare demands a huge 225GB of hard drive space. While the console versions of the game require a similar amount of space, those versions allow players to uninstall modes that players are not using, which helps reduce its HDD footprint.
Prior to Call of Duty being made exclusive to the Blizzard Launcher on PC, many Steam versions of Call of Duty games were split into two library entries for campaign and multiplayer. This helped reduce install space, but the feature has been missing for the last few entries. Thankfully, this update provides more control for players.
For those with limited hard drive space remaining, this new system may free up enough gigabytes to install the Black Ops Cold War beta, which arrives on PC this Thursday. If you’re jumping in, check out our essential tips and every weapon you can pick up, plus the best loadouts.
