Modern Warfare is an enormous game, and people have been hoping to download only Call of Duty Warzone, seeing as how that would be a much smaller file. Or, at the very least, be able to download Warzone and then delete Modern Warfare to save on HDD space. Well, we’ve tested it out both on PC and PlayStation, and we’ll present our findings in our Download CoD Warzone without Modern Warfare guide.
Can you Install Just CoD Warzone without Modern Warfare?
No, you cannot install just Call of Duty Warzone without also downloading the entirety of Modern Warfare. Even though they might have separate entries on Battle.net and the PlayStation Store etc, it’ll still download and install the whole thing. If you’re a free player, it’ll gate you off from all the content of Modern Warfare, leaving you only with Warzone, but the entirety will have to be on your machine. So, you’ll have to clear out around 100 GB off your hard drive to house this absolute monstrosity, even if CoD Warzone is all you want.
Some people that have refunded Modern Warfare or uninstalled it for whatever reason have been having some confusion over this. They think that they can’t download Warzone alone because of what they did. That’s not the case at all; as we’ve explained, the download is this big for everyone. Well, not everyone; those that already have Modern Warfare installed will only have to download an extra 20 GB or so. Which, in the end, still means that a significant chunk of your hard drive will be full, but at least you get to play the rest of the game, too.
So, there you have it. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you have to download the entirety of CoD Modern Warfare even if you only want to play Warzone.
