CoD: Modern Warfare / Warzone Patch Notes Preview And File Size Announced
Infinity Ward announces the file size for the upcoming update and reveals what's in it.
Infinity Ward recently shared details on the April 28 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, including the preliminary patch notes and the file size. The patch is due out sometime today, and we're expecting full patch notes then, but here's an overview of what to expect. [Update: The update is out now; check out the full patch notes and be prepared for a second download on consoles following the first, as described below.]
In a blog post, Infinity Ward clarified that the update is about 15 GB in size, and it will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The update delivers the Data Pack 1, and it must be downloaded to keep playing the game--here's how the two-part download works. This appears to be a console-only update.
In addition to the Data Pack, the April 28 update will include a series of bug fixes and changes (across console and PC). One of the big ones is that the speed and size of the Warzone gas circle has been "adjusted," but Infinity Ward did not provide any further details.
In terms of bug fixes, the April 28 update takes care of an issue that could cause players to lose the ability to select a favorite faction from the Operator menu. It also fixes a bug that could cause watches to appear in the wrong direction when using a gesture. There are also a variety of fixes for problems related to challenges and weapon unlocks, among other things.
The full patch notes will be released later, but for now, you can check out a preview below.
