Back in February, there were various reports online that the Final Fantasy VII Remake will require 100GB of space on your PS4’s hard drive. Now, we finally have confirmation that the leaks were true.
According to a report by USGamer, it is confirmed that the Final Fantasy VII Remake’s file size is a whopping 100GB. The report was based on an interview with FF7 Remake co-director Naoki Hamaguchi. Regarding the game’s massive file size, Hamaguchi said that the developers “decided to build each location using unique assets to achieve the quality desired” and it included “assets like the backgrounds, [background music] and characters per location.”
The game’s 100GB file size has also been confirmed on our end, given that the Final Fantasy VII Remake is now available to pre-load.
Given the immense amount of work that went into creating unique game assets, we definitely can’t wait to see how the game will look and play. Though it does come at a cost, especially for gamers with PS4’s that only have 500GB of storage space. If you are one of those gamers, you better clear up space on your hard drive now.
While the FF7 Remake’s file size is massive indeed, it’s not the only console game to reach 100GB. Rockstar Games’ Red Dead Redemption 2 for example, also has a 100GB file size.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake will be available on April 10, 2020, though expect delays in getting physical copies in various regions (including the Philippines) due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, lucky gamers in regions such as Australia and Europe area already getting their FF7 Remake phsyical copies:
