The Call of Duty franchise has been known to cause storage headaches to the players, and it appears they are set to continue with Modern Warfare 3. Activision has set the release of the first-person shooter game’s beta this week. To access the beta, players must have the Call of Duty HQ app preinstalled on their platform, which is approximately 100 GB in size, in addition to the beta itself, which is 25 GB.

This was reported by a renowned and reliable news source on Call of Duty, “CharlieIntel,” on their X(formerly Twitter) account. According to the post, the Modern Warfare 3 beta will not be a standalone download. Instead, it will be available as an add-on pack to the Call of Duty HQ app. The HQ app is designed to allow players access to all the current and future COD content in one place.

However, the size of Modern Warfare 3 beta is comparatively less than Modern Warfare 2 beta’s 27 GB. But this has done little to sway the worries of the fans. The combined size of the HQ app and Beta, which is about 125 GB, has players worried about the size of the full game. Content-wise it is going to be a lot bigger game than its predecessor.

The game is poised to have a new and fresh Warzone experience and, in a series first, a Modern Warfare 3 Zombie mode in addition to the single-player campaign and the multiplayer. So it can only be assumed that the game is definitely gonna eat up the SSD drives the Call of Duty fans. And, as expected, the fans are not enthusiastic about it, to say the least.
