CoD: Black Ops Cold War Season 6 Rolling in at a Massive 230GB on Xbox Series X

Submit

Xbox Series owners are once again faced with a massive Black Ops Cold War download as Season 6 is weighing in at more than 230GB on Series X.

Season 6 of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone are kicking off later today, and for some, the latest update has already become available. The new season adds plenty of new content to the shooter, including new multiplayer maps, weapons, the finale of Black Ops Cold War Zombies, and much more.

Switch Online N64 Datamine Suggest That At Least 38 N64 and 52 Mega Drive Games Are Planned; Also Hints at Additional Platforms

Call of Duty games are known to be quite noxious when it comes to required drive space, and unfortunately, the Season 6 update for the game is no different. As posted on Reddit, the new Season 6 update for Black Ops: Cold War clocks in at a rather massive 231.64GB on Series X. The download size should be the same for Xbox Series S owners, and with the Series S only packing around 364GB of available space on the console’s SSD, you can guess how much space there’s left for other titles.

Happy downloading guys, Season 6 kicks off at 9PM PT Oct. 6th / 12AM ET Oct 7th. As said, the new season adds new multiplayer maps alongside 100 new tiers, five free weapons, the final round-based map in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, and the conclusion to the opening chapter of the Dark Aether story. Be sure to check the official full release notes here.
