Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PS4

Did you sample Call of Duty: Modern Warfare's various multiplayer modes as part of this past weekend's free access? If you did and it has convinced you into a purchase, you might want to buckle up for the long haul when it comes to downloading the game. The first-person shooter already takes up a gigantic amount of hard drive space on PlayStation 4, and its next update will increase its size to just under 200GB.

At the time of writing, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is a 175.3GB install on PS4, but with a new 15GB patch going live tomorrow, that'll push it to an overall size of 190GB. You are required to download the update if you wish to keep playing the game, meaning it is mandatory for all players. That's a little bit ludicrous, isn't it? If you're still sporting a base PS4 console with just 500GB of space, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is going to take up nearly two-fifths of that storage. For just one game! What makes this worse is that the Activision Blog doesn't detail any substantial additions or changes that this patch will bring.

Therefore, we'll have to wait until tomorrow to see whether this upcoming patch is worth it or not. Are you running out of hard drive space thanks to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare? Complain in the comments below.
