Physical copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II contain a paltry amount of data, according to screenshots shared by early owners online that can confirm the disc only features 72.23 MB of data. Appropriately described by some as a huge waste of plastic, players who opt for the physical, disc-based release should prepare for what could be lengthy download times, as Infinity Ward’s shooter now weighs in at 150 GB following its latest pre-release update. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II will officially be released tomorrow on October 28 following a pre-order promotion that granted early access to its Campaign mode, which sees Task Force 141 facing off against PMCs and drug cartels.

A description for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II:

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II drops players into an unprecedented global conflict that features the return of the iconic Operators of Task Force 141. From small-scale, high-stakes infiltration tactical ops to highly classified missions, players will deploy alongside friends in a truly immersive experience.

Infinity Ward brings fans state-of-the-art gameplay, with all-new gun handling, advanced AI system, a new Gunsmith and a suite of other gameplay and graphical innovations that elevate the franchise to new heights.

Modern Warfare II will launch with a globe-trotting single-player campaign, immersive Multiplayer combat and a narrative-driven, co-op Special Ops experience.
