Call of Duty: Vanguard was finally officially unveiled yesterday, so now we move on to other pressing questions like… how much space do you need to make on your overflowing SSDs to play the game? Call of Duty games have developed a reputation for bloated downloads in recent years, especially if you download Warzone and all the DLC and extras.
Well, the Microsoft Store has revealed some preliminary file sizes for Call of Duty: Vanguard, and for the standalone version, it roughly matches what we saw with last year’s Black Ops Cold War – the last-gen version weighs about 75 GB and the Xbox Series X version is 95 GB. Big downloads, but again, not unprecedented. Of course things can really explode once you’ve added all the extras – the Call of Duty: Vanguard Cross-Gen Bundle weighs 270GB. Exactly how that number was reached is unclear, but the bundle includes both the latest and current generations of the game and five seasonal content packs. Whether that 270GB figure also includes Warzone is unknown. Of course, all of these file sizes may change in the future, but needless to say, if you’re looking for the full Vanguard experience, you’ll probably need to do some SSD cleanup.
