Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is finally out, bringing with it a brand new dose of multiplayer action, Zombies horrors and a thrilling campaign. If you want to save space and delete certain modes on PS4, PS5 Xbox or PC, though, you’ve come to the right place.

While clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into each Black Ops Cold War mode, some players aren’t interested in certain aspects. For example, there are those that will want to play Zombies and don’t care for multiplayer or vice versa.

Luckily for those players, Activision has started making it possible for players to uninstall or install certain modes in the game whenever they want.
