When releasing in March of this year, players flocked to Warzone for that new, different Battle Royale. The gamemode gained over 6 million players in first couple weeks of release! It’s currently still gaining popularity from the updates it puts out. But that might be because Call of Duty: Warzone is the only game you can have on your system at one time due to the Warzone file size.
With the release of Season 4 Reloaded players have had to pick which games they want to play. Between Warzone or any other game on their system. The update alone was approximately 22-36 GB for owners of the full Modern Warfare version. Taking the total file size of the game to over 200 GB on PC. Triggering fans and getting them confused.
The new season had some great fixes and additions to playlists, with 200 players now able to duke it out in the Quads. Most of the updates revolves around the Multiplayer side of the game, not even touching the Warzone Battle Royale. Sure, there are some changes to Warzone. Including the following.
“For Warzone – New Gulag weapons! Semi-auto rifles, snipers, along with one “just fists and a throwing knife” loadout. Several audio bugs fixed, especially the chopper. Fix for an issue where players could spawn under the map after winning their Gulag match. Supply choppers killing players, this issue was also fixed.”
New weapons, new audio fixes, bug fixes… Where’s the big changes? Which makes this even more confusing. A whole new map to Warzone would warrant the size of the updates, but they’re non-existent. A few new weapons and bug fixes amount to up to 40 GB in Warzone file size?
Even on the multiplayer side, there aren’t too many big changes. There is a new map called Cheshire Park and other fixes, “For Modern Warfare: Improved stability for PC players, fixed an issue where the player could get stuck in place when throwing a grenade and trying to use a Shield Turret at the same time.“
Some players are also stuck with installing their games all over again. And with the updates being this big each time they drop, Activision are going to hit a wall soon. Especially for PS4 players who can’t go out and buy a super fast SSD with a decent capacity, there has to be a reason for the size or else even PS4 aren’t going to be able to play the game soon. That, or you go out and buy a second PS4 just have Warzone on. Don’t you all have a second PS4?!?!?
