Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is set to take up just under 190GB on the Xbox Series X, according to a Reddit Post published on the console's subreddit. While players can manage what parts of the game they’d want to install to minimize the size, altogether the game size eats up 187.9GB.
There are multiple modes and files that make up this hefty number, including Cold War’s multiplayer mode (27.6GB), Zombies (no more than 7.5GB), the Dead Ops Arcade mode (11.8GB), as well as the choice of installing HD textures and Raytracing Data files, with combined totals of over 50GB.
The Series X comes with a pre-installed 1TB SSD, so there will still be a huge amount of space left over, but Cold War still makes a dent. As for the Xbox Series S, there’s been no confirmation.
This is more than the official number supplied by Activision last week, which outlined how much free space you would need to pre-load the game. Activision had the Series X file size set at 136GB. It appears that this number is not including the graphical improvements and raytracing.
The required space is less on other titles: 133GB on PlayStation 5, but just 95GB on PlayStation 4 - at least according to Activision. The Xbox One version will apparently take up 93GB, whereas PC will cost the least amount of memory, with the full game being 82GB (or 125GB with graphical improvements.
Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will arrive on November 13, 2020, launching across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Series X/S, and PC.
The Xbox Series X and Series X both launch on November 10, with the PS5 launching on November 12 in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea, while the UK and the rest of the world will need to wait until November 19.
