We've spoken time and time again about the ludicrous install size of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare on PlayStation 4, and things aren't about to get any better. After nearing 200GB in overall size, users will today have to download a mandatory 21.615GB update in order to continue playing the game. That's bigger than some entire games on PS4! But to be fair, at least this time around the patch contains some new, worthwhile content.
For Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, players can look forward to playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Hardhat map and a new Gunfight arena named Aisle 9. Hardhat is a "haven for close quarters, fast-paced, and frenetic combat, but also features some longer sightlines, so a variety of loadout types can find success."
Meanwhile, the Gulag in Call of Duty: Warzone is seeing some new additions. You now have the chance of randomly being given an SMG or assault rifle to battle your opponent with. These include the AK-47, M13, Kilo 141, Ram-7, Striker 45, and more. When you're not sitting around waiting for a match to begin, out on the battlefield you'll be able to find a new item known as the Armor Box. This functions in the same way that a Munitions Box does -- placable on the ground so that your team can recover armour pieces before or after a shootout. They're bought from Buy Stations or sourced from general loot and supply boxes.
Finally, a new playlist called Classic Battle Royale has been added to the rotation. "This mode strips down Battle Royale and features no Buy Stations, no Contracts, and no Gulag. If you’re out, you’re out. Survive the enemies and the ever-collapsing circle to be the last team standing." If you've ever been put off by Warzone's respawning mechanics, this sounds like the mode for you.
