Retail copies of Call of Duty: WWII will be unplayable without the 9GB day-one patch


Those of you who are looking to play Call of Duty: WWII the moment you get home from the store think again. According to early adopters of the retail copy, the game will not be playable at all without the update. Yes, this means both single-player and multiplayer modes will not be bootable without you downloading a 9GB update first.

This was discovered after some gamers got hold of the copy early and were unable to play it at all. Not one mode was loadable, that is until Sledgehammer Games released the 9GB update. Once gamers downloaded the patch, the game's modes magically unlocked. Okay, it was not magic it was modern gaming. The early adopters were able to launch the single-player mode, as well as the zombie mode and play multiplayer with bots. 

This has never happened in a Call of Duty game before unless you are playing MP which is the obvious these days. Maybe it was a load of bugs they squashed on the game and forces players to download the update before experiencing them, or maybe it was just a way to lock the game down until launch. 

Also, take this as a warning, do not head to any online forums, or search YouTube for streams as they will be around now that the game has leaked. Call of Duty: WWII releases this Friday, 3 November on PS4, Xbox One, and PC

Will this day one 9GB update impact your launch day? let us know in the comments below.
