In recent years, the size of Call Of Duty’s titles has taken a hefty toll on console storage, but there is some good news with this year’s Call Of Duty: Vanguard. According to a post released on Twitter, Activision claim that Vanguard’s install size will be “significantly below” previous titles. The studio adds that “on-demand texture streaming technology” can save between “30%-50%+” of storage space across next-gen consoles and PC.
File sizes can be reduced depending on a player’s gaming preference. Players will have the opportunity to install and uninstall the campaign, multiplayer, and zombies mode.
Last year’s Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War boasted some staggering file sizes that were as exhausting as the lengthy title. To pre-load the title on the PS4, Black Ops Cold War required 95GB of storage space and 133GB on its next-gen successor.
Similarly, on the Xbox One and Series X/S, Black Ops Cold War required 93GB and 136GB respectively. For PC, the full game demanded a hefty 82GB, and 125GB with the added benefits of Ultra graphics. Multiplayer sat comfortably at a reasonable 35GB. Charlie Intel confirmed the download sizes for Vanguard across each respective platform excluding PC, which is expected at a later date. The download sizes are considerably more reasonable than recent predecessors.
