Get those hard drives at the ready for a huge install, as Call of Duty Vanguard’s Ultimate Edition clocks in at a whopping 270 GB.
Call of Duty titles have been getting bigger and bigger with every passing year. Simply installing Black Ops Cold War and Warzone alone will be enough to almost fill up your console’s hard drive.
Now, it looks like Vanguard will be able to take up a huge amount of storage space by itself – especially if you’re opting to splash the cash. Those who purchase the Call of Duty Vanguard edition will need to delete a few games to make way for this tremendous file size.
But is the special edition of the game even worth it? Take a look at everything you get for pre-ordering Call of Duty Vanguard Ultimate Edition here!
However, at least pre-ordering the game will get you access to the Vanguard Open Beta.
But it looks like Xbox fans are uninterested in Vanguard thanks to Halo and Battlefield!
Vanguard Ultimate Edition Insane File Size Revealed
According to the official Microsoft store, the Call of Duty Vanguard Ultimate Edition will take up a whopping 270.06 GB in disk space.
This insane file size dwarfs even Call of Duty Warzone, and surely it’s for good reason. Of course, the Ultimate Edition comes packed with a ton of bonus content for fans, but nothing that could possibly take up so much room.
According to the store listing, Call of Duty Vanguard’s Ultimate Edition contains:
- Cross Gen Bundle of Call of Duty®: Vanguard game
- Includes Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game
- Task Force One Pack
3 Operator Skins
3 Weapon Blueprints with Tracer Rounds
- Battle Pass Bundle (1 season Battle Pass + 20 Tier Skips)***
- 10 hours of 2XP (5 hours of 2XP and 5 hours of weapons 2XP)
- Digital Exclusive – Frontline Weapons Pack
Perhaps the incredible file size is a result of both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S versions both being included in the listing. On top of that, it seems as though the Vanguard beta for both Xbox One and Series X/S may also contribute to its insane size.
The Ultimate Edition even contains 5 mysterious ‘Content Packs’ for Vanguard, which will presumably not be available at launch.
Call of Duty: Vanguard File Size
From the individual listings, it appears that Call of Duty Vanguard will be 75 GB in size on Xbox One consoles. However, it’ll take up 95 GB on Xbox Series X/S due to the improved graphics and additional features.
Let’s hope that we’re able to pick and choose what we install when we purchase our Vanguard Ultimate Editions.
In more exciting news, Vanguard is confirmed to get a new WW2 Warzone map WITH anti-cheat! The latter reveal is something that fans have been waiting for for months.
What’s more, early leaks reveal that Vanguard’s next-gen graphics are insane. This is definitely something that gamers would like to see, as many believe that Black Ops Cold War was a downgrade from Modern Warfare.
But with Vanguard running on the Modern Warfare engine, perhaps this game will be a return to form for Call of Duty.
