One thing to watch out for here is the file size: In the past few months Call of Duty Modern Warfare has earned a reputation for massive updates, and this won’t be an exception as almost 50 GB is required for the premium PC version. The advantage, however, is that Infinity Ward also compresses a number of assets, which seems to mean a larger initial download but a smaller eventual file size on your computer. It’s still gigantic, don’t get me wrong, but it appears to be smaller than it could have been if the developers hadn’t taken those measures to get things under control.
