Today Activision and Infinity Ward are rolling out the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Data Pack download. The new update comes in at 15GB. However, the method of downloading this data pack is a bit different from what you are used to. Instead of using the PS4 or Xbox One download menu, this data pack downloads in Call of Duty itself.
Once you download the latest patch which releases sometime today, an in-game prompt instructs you to download the data pack. This Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Game Data pack will download in the game itself. Meaning you cannot exit the game during the download. Once installed, a hard close and restart are needed to complete the installation.
Be prepared for another hefty game download and be ready to free up more HDD space. Activision claims the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Game Data Pack 1 comes in at around 15GB for PS4, Xbox One and PC. This marking another huge installation requirement for the game. It currently sits at 175GB on the PS4 alone. Keep in mind that this is “Game Data Pack 1” with more to follow in the coming months.
Activision plans on releasing the full list of changes and features in the patch today. In the meantime, they gave us a sneak peek at what is to come on the blog here.
