Thinking of grabbing Sledgehammer’s latest iteration in the Call of Duty franchise, Call of Duty: WWII? Well, you’ll likely need to delete those couple of games you ‘swear you’ll come back to’ because this year’s ‘return to roots’ shooter requires a whopping 80GB of free space on your PS4 console.
The news comes via a Reddit post which allegedly displays the product information. Next to supported players, you can see that you’ll need 80Gb on your Sony console.
That being said there are a couple of questions that need answering: Will that 80GB of required space include the base game alone, or is that a placeholder number for all the subsequent DLC and updates post-launch? Secondly is the number the actually required space or is it just a general amount of space the developers assume you’ll need.
With regards to the second question, developers often place a solid number of required space just so players know as of now how much they’ll need to free up to play the game – more often than not the game may not actually use up all that space.
As of right now, we don’t really know exactly what it means, but better safe than sorry to free up that space.
Call of Duty: WWII releases November 3rd for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
