Want to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3? Then prepare in advance for a massive download and installation time for the game. According to Activision, this is because of zombies.
Obviously Activision is not talking about its own staff, but has everything to do with the zombie mode in the game itself.

The enormity of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
It’s almost here: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is fast approaching. A number of players who bought early access for the game are already allowed to get started. Still, before you even touch the game for a second, something stands out: the sheer size.
Players who already have access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 report needing 200 gigabytes of disk space. Players on the PlayStation 5 report as much as 240 gigabytes. So the game takes up considerable space on your SSD.
By the way, the game doesn’t necessarily have to be that big. You have the option to install portions. For example, you can choose to install different parts through the Call of Duty HQ, such as the campaign, for example. Once you have installed everything, you can also free up space that way. Ideal if you are not actively playing certain parts.
Not really a surprise
Although some users are complaining about the space they have to free up on their PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series S/X, Activision is strongly defending itself. The size of the game is attributed to the large amount of content already available on day one, including an expanded open world for Zombies, map files for the current Call of Duty: Warzone and support for items carried over from Modern Warfare 2.
Still, the scope of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 does not come as a complete surprise. The second installment already accounted for 150 GB of disk space.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is already available for early access and its official release date is scheduled for Nov. 10.
