Clear some space, Red Dead Redemption 2 will be a 105GB install
Those realistic horse testicles take up a lot of space.
Games keep getting bigger and our hard drives stay the same size. In recent years, it seems like more and more games are demanding huge swathes of our precious hard drive space, making what you keep and what you delete a choice you have to make more often.
Well, start clearing some space, everyone, for Red Dead Redemption 2 will soon be here to take up a huge chunk of your hard drive space. Coming in at a whopping 105Gb, RDR 2 is easily one of the largest launch download files I’ve ever seen. And RIP to everyone with either unreliable or slow internet, we’ll see you on day two of launch.
We know the size of the file thanks to new box art from the limited edition PlayStation 4 bundle that includes Red Dead Redemption 2. On this same box, as reported first by Rockstar Intel, we also see that multiplayer consists of 2-32 people, which we can assume is the Red Dead Online portion of the game.
This box art also confirms something we were aware of – exclusivity for PlayStation 4 owners. Now, however, we also have a timeframe for that – 30 days. Meaning, PS4 owners will get certain content 30 days in advance, before it is released on Xbox One. This is better than some exclusives that literally remain exclusives, but as always, please remember, console exclusives are bad and we shouldn’t support the practice.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is scheduled to release on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It will most likely come to PC as well, but no confirmed dates at this time.
