New, current-gen games are big. With all these graphical advancements comes the scary reality of having to find somewhere to put it all. Games lately take up more space than Matty’s hair in a beanie, and Call of Duty is no exception.
Advanced Warfare is just a few weeks away from launch. This year’s call of Duty is now finally up for pre-order on the Xbox One, revealing just how much HDD space you’ll need to sacrifice for this year’s fix. In what’s becoming the holy grail of install sizes, it seems that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will ask you to donate 48.89GB of storage space for the future war.
Most games lately linger around the 50GB mark, which makes this fairly unsurprising. It’s becoming clearer that upgrading to even a 1TB HDD isn’t exactly enough, unless you plan to constantly delete and re-install games. The PS4 and Xbox One both ship with 500GB hard drives, which are definitely not up to the task.
Along with the install size, the price of Advanced Warfare’s Season Pass was also revealed. The Pass, like every other year, will cost $50 – which means local pricing shouldn’t be affected, hopefully. We still have no idea what will be included in the pass, but you can purchase now of you feel like it’s been worth it in the past.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 3rd. If you’re still on the fence, then check out my recent hands-on time with some of the multiplayer.
