Death Stranding reveals minimum file size requirement for PS4

Not as big as we expected.

ONE Store Beta Now Available

File sizes for games have been steadily increasing in the past few years, so much so that some triple-A console titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2 have file sizes of over 100GB. Generally though, big-budget console games have file sizes of around 50GB.

As for the upcoming PS4 exclusive, Death Stranding, a listing of the Death Stranding limited edition PS4 Pro revealed the game’s file size.

According to the image above taken (specifially, the fine pring) from the Best Buy listing, Death Stranding will require a minimum 55GB of free space on a PS4. Of course, this doesn’t mean that the game’s file size will only be 55GB considering that there will probably be a day-one patch when the game releases.

Death Stranding’s minimum free space requirement is par for the course for a PS4-exclusive. For example, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has a file size of 63GB; meanwhile, Horizon Zero Dawn’s size is around 40GB.

With this info, you better clear up some space in your PS4’s storage when Death Stranding releases on November 8, 2019.
