Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's file size will once again wreck your console storage

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's file size will once again wreck your console storage

Thicc and chonky

It's not too long before Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 drops and all our consoles cry at having to give over so much space to the yearly shooter.

With more and more content coming each year, it's no surprise that the file sizes keep going up. Modern Warfare 3 is set to feature the campaign, traditional multiplayer, Warzone and Zombies. That's a lot gaming stuffed into one title.

Take a look at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III in action below.

The last two iterations of the Call of Duty franchise were beasts and had many gamers frustrated at how many gigabytes the game took up. It started with the first Warzone, which got bigger with every patch and on the run up to the Modern Warfare 3 beta, we have some details on the storage front.

The MW3 beta on its own is set to take up 24GB according to a recent report. However, the beta isn't its own game - you will need to download the main client which serves the entire game. CharlieIntel over on X, formally Twitter, has given players a warning to download the Call of Duty HQ base file, which is 100GB.

Yep, you read that right. Just to take part in the beta, you'll need around 125GB of free storage. This won't be an issue if you already play CoD on the regular, as you'll have the files needed for the beta, already installed. The Call of Duty HQ hub officially launched 30 September and sets "Call of Duty" as your main game, instead of the individual titles. This allows players to download the content they need for what they want to play.

This massive file size is a sign of what's to come as we wouldn't be surprised if the final game takes up another chunk of space. Thankfully you should still be able to select what you want to play, so once you're done with the campaign, you can uninstall that section of content.
