The announcement has not been yet made official, but Xbox One users certainly need to prepare 28GB of space for Fallout 4 come November, when the game will be released. The news has not been confirmed by its developer, Bethesda, but has been all but verified by Microsoft.
- Fallout 4 will occupy 28.12GB of space on Xbox One, likely to be the same size for PS 4 and PC
- Bethesda has boasted massive content for the game
- They offer a Season Pass at the price of $30 for all upcoming DLC
- The game has not been released, but a DLC is already in the works
The upcoming highly anticipated videogame will take 28.12GB of space on your hard drive, so it’s best to start thinking if you have enough. There have been no news how much it will take up for PlayStation 4 or PC, but it’s not expected that the numbers will vary by too large of a margin.
There’s still over a month to go, so gamers will have ample of time to make modifications.
It has been speculated what this rather generous size might mean for the game. On one hand, it seems well in tone with Bethesda’s boasts that it will hold massive amounts of content. But, on the other, it’s not precisely breaking any records, when relatively recent games like Grand Theft Auto V took up to a whopping 60GB for PCs.
However, the developer is not to be underestimated. While they would not have wasted gigabytes worth of space on dialogs, it’s quite clear that most of their dedication and efforts have been poured into creating an interactive and complex world. The high quality textures might have suffered just a bit.
For avid gamers though, that price might just be worth it if it means they will have access to a more complicated world, filled with numerous objects and, hopefully, an immense map. If the developer’s track record is taken into consideration, it’s likely to satisfy the needs of most.
Bethesda has also made a few more announcements in regards to their upcoming game meant to add to an already successful franchise. There will be no level cap for the character, meaning that players will be allowed to roam, grow and gain experience until they get bored. It should be expected that a lot record-breaking could come out of this particular feature.
They have also stated that they will not offer any console-exclusive DLCs for any sort of time period, unlike they did for their former videogames. This is good news for gamers, who will no longer have to wait for additional content just because they chose to play Fallout 4 on a different platform.
Seems quite fair, though most studios are lured in by lucrative deals with console manufacturers.
Bethesda is also putting a $30 Season Pass for avid fans of the Fallout franchise, who will have instant access to all upcoming DLCs, one of which is already in the works for 2016. They will also be able to take advantage of modding tools.
If anyone remembers how well that went for Skyrim, it could be a good deal.
