PC Players: New Patching Process Intel
On Battle.net, Black Ops Cold War and Warzone have a new patching process (introduced for the Season One Reloaded update to Black Ops Cold War) that will keep updates smaller and reduce overall file size growth as both games evolve. However, this new process includes a copying phase that requires additional hard drive space, which is immediately reclaimed upon completion and is not an additional download.
When this update begins, you will see the word “Copying” over the progress bar along with a different file size number than what is listed above. This initial file size is not the update being download, but rather files being copied over.
For Warzone, this copying file size is 26 GB for non-Modern Warfare owners, and 28 GB for those that own Modern Warfare. For Black Ops Cold War, the copying file size is 30.85 GB.
After this process is complete, the actual patch download will begin. The space used by the copied files on disk will be reclaimed after the patch is downloaded and the game is playable again.
Now that you have all this intel, it’s time to assemble the squad and prepare to drop into Season Two in just a handful of hours. The fate of the world is in your hands, Operator.
