Black Ops Cold War can occupy up to 250 GB of space on your disk

Activision has published the minimum, recommended (with and without Ray Tracing), competitive and Ultra RTX requirements to run the new Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, and the numbers are so huge that the game can end up swallowing a whole SSD.

While in the regular version of the game (launch) the multiplayer mode occupies "only 50 GB", the full version with all game modes reaches 175 GB. But, if you have enough machine to run the Ultra RTX version you will need 250 GB of space.

Only that Ultra RTX version needs so much space. Perhaps considering that the rest of the requirements are an Intel i9-9900K or AMD Ryzen 3700X, 16 GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, it is possible that whoever has a machine this powerful, has at least one or two discs to install their games.

250 GB is not a negligible amount of space, in fact, it is up to date the heaviest game for pc from the actuality. Before this only another version of the same franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, had surpassed 200 GB.

The Call of Duty saga in numbers: the art of war as a banknote machine

Although modern games occupy more and more space due to their complexity and size, undoubtedly the addition of 4K textures and elements such as Ray Tracing, are making the hardware requirements higher and higher.

Activision may sooner or later do something about it, and for those who are only interested in multiplayer, this will not be anywhere near the same problem. Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare was criticized for the enormous amount of space it required, so much so that not long ago it was patched and the space it occupies dropped from 220 GB to less than 170 GB, perhaps there is hope for this too.
