CoD: Modern Warfare Update Will Be Split In Two; Here's How To Download Both

If you own Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, updating your game this week will be slightly different. Developer Infinity Ward is splitting the patch content across two separate downloads, one of which you’ll have to manually start.

The first part will download as normal on your console of choice, kicking in as soon as you try launch the game when the update goes live later this week. From there, you’ll need to launch the game and access any mode outside of Warzone (Campaign, Multiplayer, or Spec-Ops). You’ll then be prompted to download the Data Pack DLC, and you won’t be able to play anything other than Warzone until that is complete.

When both downloads are completed, you’ll have to restart Modern Warfare for them to apply. If you’re just playing the free-to-play battle royale mode Warzone, you won’t have to start this second download as it only applies to paid content part of the base Modern Warfare package.

This week’s update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is extensive, including a new contract in Warzone called Most Wanted, a playlist update that brings back fan-favorite 24/7 Shipment matches, and the ability to mix and match weapon blueprints. Infinity Ward announced that the patch will be live on April 28th, and will be around 15GB in size.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare / Warzone April 28 Patch Notes Preview And File Size Announced

Infinity Ward has share more details on the April 28 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone, including the preliminary patch notes and the file size. Here’s what to expect on Tuesday.

In a blog post, Infinity Ward clarified that the update is about 15 GB in size, and it will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The update delivers the Data Pack 1, and it must be downloaded to keep playing the game. This appears to be a console-only update.

In addition to the Data Pack, the April 28 update will include a series of bug fixes and changes (across console and PC). One of the big ones is that the speed and size of the Warzone gas circle has been “adjusted,” but Infinity Ward did not provide any further details.

In terms of bug fixes, the April 28 update takes care of an issue that could cause players to lose the ability to select a favorite faction from the Operator menu. It also fixes a bug that could cause watches to appear in the wrong direction when using a gesture. There are also a variety of fixes for problems related to challenges and weapon unlocks, among other things.

The full patch notes will be released later, but for now, you can check out a preview below.

April 28 Modern Warfare Patch Notes Preview:

  • Fix for a bug where PC players using a Vega64 GPU could see corrupted outlines around their character models and weapons.
  • Fix for a bug where selecting the USEF 1 skin for the Mil-Sim Operator appears as the default skin in Co-op
  • Adjusted the speed and sizing of the circle in Warzone
  • Fix for a bug where completing the completionist challenges for the SKS are unlocking the associated camos for the Renetti
  • Fix for a bug where unlocking camos for the SKS was inconsistent with other camo challenges for marksman rifles
  • Fixed a bug where the “Hard Wired” skin for Alex would appear in thermals while Cold Blooded is equipped
  • Fixed a bug where some watches were appearing the wrong direction when gesturing
  • Fixed a bug where players could lose the option to pick their favorite Faction in the Operator menu
  • Fixed a bug where white lighting could be seen while moving or firing a weapon near specific locations

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare/Warzone Update Coming Soon

A new update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone will release on April 28, Activision has announced. The update is coming to PS4 and Xbox One, and it’s a mandatory update, which means you must download it to keep playing.

After the update installs, players will then be asked to download “Data Pack 1” from the in-game menus. After this update is finished, players must quit and restart to keep playing.

Activision did not provide any details on what’s actually included in the Data Pack, but those details should become available soon. Activision did not say if this patch is also coming to PC.

The April 28 update will be just the latest update for Modern Warfare/Warzone, following a patch released on April 23 that fixed two major exploits.

Call Of Duty Modern Warfare Free Trial Starts This Weekend

Another Call of Duty: Modern Warfare free play weekend is set to go live on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One between April 24-27.

The free Modern Warfare trail will allow players to play the game’s multiplayer mode on five different maps. This includes Season 2’s Khandor Hideout, Season 3’s Hovec Sawmill, and three others.

PlayStation 4 players can play Modern Warfare online without an active PS Plus account. It’s unclear if Xbox One players must have an Xbox Live Gold account to play during the free trial weekend.

Additionally, it’s unclear if any experience gained during the free trial will carry over to the full game should players decide to purchase it. Modern Warfare is currently on sale for 25 percent off on the Microsoft Store (with an active Xbox Live Gold account), PC, and the PlayStation Store (down to $45 instead of $60).

In other Call of Duty news, developer Infinity Ward has added new content to Modern Warfare and its standalone battle royale title, Warzone. This includes a new Operator based on a real-life US Army veteran who escaped Vietnam in 1979, additional weapon bundles, and playlist adjustments. The studio is also looking into ways to combat Modern Warfare cheaters by pairing them with each other.
