Activision officially revealed Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Warzone Battle Royale yesterday, and as it turns out, the standalone free to play release is quite large.
Warzone launches today as a standalone title with cross-platform support, and alongside yesterday’s details, Activision revealed the game’s file sizes. Modern Warfare already is among the biggest recent titles and the standalone version of Warzone is no slouch either. According to Activision, those who don't already own Modern Warfare are facing a 83-101GB download for Warzone.
Players who already own the full version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare will be presented with a 18 to 22GB download."Warzone will replace the previously named ‘Classified’ panel in the Main Menu", Activision writes. "A one-time early access will give Modern Warfare owners the ability to download Warzone at 8AM PDT. For Modern Warfare owners who are current and have the most recent title updates, the download will be a 18-22GB. Once download is complete, Modern Warfare owners will “unlock” the Warzone panel, which was previously classified, and can enter the lobby and play."
Call of Duty: Warzone is free for everyone and become available globally today.
