While we already know that a new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare patch is set to drop next week on April 28, it seems PS4 and Xbox One gamers will need to clear some space now, as Infinity Ward has announced a 15GB(!) Modern Warfare data pack download due next week!
Here’s the official details from Infinity Ward:
DATA PACK DOWNLOAD: Coming April 28th
Own Modern Warfare on PS4 or Xbox?
Tuesday’s update includes a required download for PlayStation and Xbox, about 15gbs, and is required to access Modern Warfare.
Once you install the patch and select a mode, (multiplayer, campaign, Special Operations, etc.), you will be brought to a game install menu. Here, you’ll need to download Data Pack 1 from this menu. Once the download is complete, you will need to hard close and reopen the game application.
From the sound of it, it seems like players will be able to select which component of hte game they want to install. I sure hope so since as of this writing, Modern Warfare eats up over 150GB of my PS4 harddisk already.
Also announced is a bunch of new playlist updates coming next week! Community favorite Shoot the Ship 24/7 is coming back!
Next week also holds some playlist updates. Modern Warfare will see Shoot the Ship 24/7 (now with Cranked and Grind in the mix!) along with some fun Gunfight variations. There’s also something new to chase. Can we interest you in Obsidian camo? Or maybe you want to mix and match blueprint weapon attachments to your heart’s content, even on another blueprint weapon…
Hopefully, this 15GB Modern Warfare data pack download will be one of the last big downloads players will need to do. I mean, surely, a game patch shouldn’t require 15GB of disk space, right?
