The campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II has been available for several days now, but the game will be released tomorrow for all players, including a physical version at many retailers. The first physical copies are starting to be delivered and some people have had a nice surprise by tucking the precious cake into their console.
The Modern Warfare 2 physical version disk is only 72MB
In fact, several internet users discovered this and decided to share the information, which is nothing short of surprising, as the latest Call of Duty disk only holds 72MB of data. The full size of the game still accounts for more than 100GB, up to 150GB particularly on the PlayStation 5.
These dummy discs distributed by Activision therefore mean that you will need to be connected to the internet to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II as all downloads are then made from your console’s online stores.
This is not the first time this has happened and players have widely criticized this type of practice, which complicates the preservation of games and insidiously encourages players to switch to dematerialization. Furthermore, the fact of buying a physical game is therefore no longer of practical interest if the latter does not contain it and it is still necessary to install it completely online once the CD has been inserted into the console.
A point for gamers living in a country where data is limited or more commonly in areas where internet speeds are slow. This goes against the current energy problems that push us to reduce our electricity consumption, among other things, since players will have to run their console for hours to finally enjoy their game, physically purchased or not.
Call of Duty Modern Warfare II will be available tomorrow on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, as well as Xbox Series X | S and PS5. The game is expected to weigh around 35GB, but the day one patch, which has become commonplace, will add more than 100GB to the equation. Recall that Infinity Ward has made it clear that the trick of changing the region of your console to be able to play in advance could block your account.
