If you’re struggling to find room to install new updates on your console because you’ve got Call of Duty: Modern Warfare installed, then you’re not alone. To help combat the game’s huge footprint, Activision is giving Xbox One and PlayStation 4 users the chance to uninstall certain modes to free up space on their hard drive.
A few days ago Activision confirmed players would be able to remove unwanted Modern Warfare content from their consoles on Twitter. So if you’re only playing multiplayer and Warzone, then you can opt to uninstall the campaign and Spec Ops, for example.
The game is current installed in several big chunks. Xbox One users will have the option to uninstall seven different packs, while PlayStation 4 users will have to pick from five different packs. What you choose to uninstall, of course, is completely up to you.
You can find the full list of what you can and can’t install here, but if you’re looking to free up some space ready for the next big update, you’ll have to navigate to the game installs menu in game. This can be found under options, then general.
You’ll be glad to know that Infinity Ward knows the size of its game is pretty big. In the most recent big update for the game, the studio optimised the file size of the game, making it smaller for everyone, but it’s still taking up a sizeable chunk on hard drives across console and PC.
Unfortunately for PC players though, there doesn’t seem to be an option to uninstall certain modes just yet.
