Activision has noted in a blog post that players who wish to have both Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Call of Duty: Warzone installed on a single system may not be able to fit it all onto a 500 GB PS4 in the near future.
In the blog post, Activision tells players that “Those who own a standard PlayStation 4 with a default hard drive of 500 GB may need to make room if they have the full versions of Modern Warfare®/Warzone and Black Ops Cold War with all modes and packs installed. Should you have both games installed and have kept up to date with updates, you may need to delete some unused Game Content to have a successful download and install of the Warzone patch tonight.”
The publisher then goes onto highlight that in order to do this, players will need to delete individual bits of content they haven’t used in a while. This can be done in the following ways for both games:
Black Ops Cold War: At the main menu, press R3 to go to “File Management.” You will then be able to delete any content you may not have played in a while. The exact content to choose can be found in the Storage Management article linked below.
Modern Warfare/Warzone: At the main menu, press Options, select the “General” tab, then scroll down to “Game Installs.” From here, you can delete any content you have not played in a while.
This isn’t particularly surprising to players who are keeping the game up to date, but this might mean that in the future the only way to play these games and keep them updated with the new content is to have external storage devices that stretch beyond the 500 GB limit of the base PS4.
How do you feel about this and are you a player who will be affected by this?
