Call of Duty: Modern Warfare players rejoice. Your prayers have been answered. The latest update lets you delete content to save space on PC, which has been a long time coming. Here’s everything you need to know on how to do it.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s biggest problem is its absurd file-size. It was large enough to begin with, but a series of hefty updates has made it around 200 GB. Thankfully, that’s about to change.
The latest update has made it possible for PC players to uninstall unwanted parts of the game to save space. It’s something that should have been introduced a long time ago, but at least it’s finally here.
Call of Duty’s install sizes have spiked massively in the past few years. Whereas Black Ops 2 (10GB) and Modern Warfare 2 (16GB) were relatively small, more modern titles like Black Ops 3 (60GB) and World War II (90GB) have blown out hard.
This issue has reached a head in the past year, with Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare install ballooning out drastically. Right now, the full game install clocks in at 175 gigabytes on PC hard drives, which can often be half the full size of the HDD.
Now, after so long, there’s two simple words in the latest patch that every Modern Warfare players have longed to hear (or read) for a very long time: “Modify Install.”
If you want to know how to do it, we’ve got you covered, courtesy of Infinity Ward.
Unfortunately, for those who prefer multiplayer, Warzone cannot be uninstalled, so you’ll need to settle for removing one or both of the other modes. Still, it’s better than nothing, and let’s be honest, it’s probably worthwhile to keep Warzone installed since it’s the most popular mode.
From that point onwards, all that’s left to do is wait and watch a good chunk of your sacred disk space slowly come back from the dead.
