The game will then ask you to restart it to apply the Data Pack 1 download, which should then allow you to play the multiplayer, campaign, and spec ops game modes for Modern Warfare in addition to the Warzone Battle Royale. The download for this additional component of the game's latest update is around 18 GB, so players that are near the very end of their storage will need to clear a tad bit of space if they want to be able to play the other three game modes. 

The Data Pack 1 download is only needed for players playing on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. PC players do not have to worry about making sure they download Data Pack 1 to play the game's campaign, multiplayer, and spec ops game modes.
