Call Of Duty: Vanguard Reveals File Sizes & Music Content

Activision and Sledgehammer Games released a couple of nuggets of information about Call Of Duty: Vanguard about music and file sizes. First off, as we have some of the info below, the company went into detail about the file sizes for consoles and what players will be looking at when downloading the game. Surprisingly, it's a lot less of a download than Black Ops Cold War or Modern Warfare have been. That said, the file size already has people complaining that the game probably doesn't have a ton of content tied to it. Time will tell when we're finally able to check it out. Meanwhile, they released a new video, which you can check out down at the bottom, going over the music for this particular game. Enjoy the new content before it launches on November 5th.
