Call of Duty Modern Warfare Update Time, Patch Notes & Download Sizes Confirmed

Call of Duty Modern Warfare is set to release a quite frankly massive mid-season update for Season 4 today and for fans of Warzone it should be especially interesting.

Such is the significance of the update, Infinity Ward are labeling it "Call of Duty Modern Warfare – Reloaded"

There's loads of new content for the game and the free Warzone Battle Royale mode.

This includes a new multiplayer map, a new operator, a new sniper rifle, and a whole assortment of new Warzone content which the developer claims will "fundamentally change the battle in Verdansk."

Undoubtedly the biggest addition is a new 200-Player Warzone mode. This means players will be split into groups of 50 Quads fighting it out across Verdansk.

If you want the full rundown of new features,follow the link , but for now, we're looking at when this update drops, how big it will be, and those official patch notes.

WHAT IS THE CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE UPDATE RELEASE TIME?

Activision and Infinity Ward confirmed that the Call of Duty Modern Warfare Season 4 update will be released at 11pm PT on Monday, June 29, 2020.

Now, that is of course the time of release for players in the United States. Bad news since it's very late and bedtime is calling.

But for players in the United Kingdom, it's perfect, since it means the new download will go live at 7 am BST.

As per usual, we should see this update released simultaneously across PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Be prepared for any potential server downtime and lengthy server queues when trying to play as soon as the update drops.

It's only natural with millions of users downloading the same update and attempting to log back on.

WHAT IS THE CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE DOWNLOAD SIZE?

Knowing that the download sizes are starting to get a bit out of hand and knowing just how much players love to complain about the Call of Duty Modern Warfare update sizes, we have some information ahead of time.

According to Infinity Ward and Activision, this next Modern Warfare update will still be fairly hefty to download, but importantly it won't actually be that much bigger when fully downloaded.

“Please note that the Season Four Reloaded update will have a download size of approximately 22-36 GB for owners of the full version of Modern Warfare." Infinity Ward's blogpost explained.

“Console owners must install a secondary download of approximately 3.5GB, then reboot the game to access Multiplayer, if desired. A reminder, console players can choose also to uninstall/remove other data packs.

“Once the Season Four Reloaded update is fully completed, it should minimally increase the overall digital footprint of the full version of Modern Warfare.

“Existing free-to-play Warzone players will have a download size of approximately 22GB-30GB, once finished there will be a reduction to the overall footprint on their machines.”

So in short, the update is big, but it seems to just be overwriting a lot of pre-existing data. Fantastic, if a little frustrating.

Honestly, we hope PS5 and Xbox Series X can sort out this overwhelming mess in future.
