How will we wage war in the future? Call of Duty Infinite Warfare helps answer this question. Players, lock and load for the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare beta.
Fans and players of the FPS genre ought to prepare for outer space combat and new Combat Rigs that will set Infinite Warfare apart with its other compatriots. It is also worth mentioning that Infinite Warfare will also be released with Modern Warfare Remastered. The latter is a retelling of the classic Modern Warfare game, one of the most iconic titles of the franchise.
It was previously leaked that Infinite Warfare will be having a tremendous disk size for the entire game. According to Activision, they finally confirm that the entire game will need 130 GB of hard disk space. However, this is a “high-end” estimate, meaning the file size can actually get lower (a bit) than 130GB.
Too big a game?
This of course. means both of the games will take up to 130 GB. However, this still makes Infinite Warfare one of the largest games released to date. The 130 GB will comprise both games – meaning the campaign and multiplayer maps – as well as the day one patch.
Activision did not break down the details, but according to Game Rant, 40 GB will roughly be for Modern Warfare Remastered while 90 GB will be allotted for Infinite Warfare. However, this is of course with using Black Ops 3 as a guide.
However, players still want to see whether or not Infinite Warfare can meet its expectations for other Call of Duty games. Previous iterations have short bursts of five to six hours of campaign. Hopefully, Infinite Warfare will make a more seamless, lengthier and complete experience.
Regardless, players still have the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare beta to judge.
