With news of the install size for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War being revealed earlier today, to no one’s surprise, it seems that players can also expect an additional Black Ops Cold War day one update at launch.
The good news? Well, according to our internal tracker, this update only weighs in at 11.8GB. There are currently no known details as to what this update does, nor do we expect to hear anything about it until next week when the game will be available.
