Modern Warfare's PC storage specs include space for DLC

Questions were raised over the hefty space required on your hard drive, but it turns out the initial download will be smaller.

When Activision and Infinity Ward first revealed the PC specifications for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare earlier this week, people were shocked that they were asking players to clear 175 GB of hard drive space, but it turns out not all is as it seems with this figure.

Another post on Activision's site clarifies that the 175 GB figure is the recommended amount players should keep available to cater for post-launch content as well, with the initial download actually being smaller, although no number was given.

We already knew about the team working with Nvidia for ray tracing and adaptive shading, but this same post reveals the implementation of Ansel and Highlights. The latter is a powerful photo mode for the nicest of shots, while Highlights automatically captures the best moments in the game.

Are you pleased to hear this 175 GB number is not the base game?
