It’s not that foreign of a concept that video games, big budget titles especially, cost users an arm and a leg when downloading the client onto their hard drives. Titles like Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2, for example, asking for nearly 100 GBs worth of space to play the game. But for The Division 2, it’s a little more complex than that.
Yesterday, Ubisoft released on the FAQ page for the upcoming sequel the required space that users will need available to install physical version the game. While Xbox One and PC both have a space requirement of 48 – 52 GB for the game’s title update, PlayStation 4’s space requirement is nearly double that with a whopping 88 – 92 GB.
Stated from the UbiSupport page:
“If you purchased a physical copy of the game,” the blog reads. “Your console will simultaneously download Title Update 1 while you install it. Expect a 88-92 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language.”
Despite Sony users having to nearly fork over double the amount of space for the upcoming title, there is no clear explanation to why this is only for the PlayStation 4. This situation seems the share parallel similarities to Bethesda’s Fallout 76 in a way, as the game’s Day One patch equaled out to the same size as the entire client, but this applied to all platforms.
For those who plan on going physical on Sony’s platform, make sure you do some early Spring cleaning on you PlayStation 4 and the Tom Clancy title is inbound less than a week from today.
The Division 2 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
