Whether or not it’ll be the same size at launch, Fallout 76’s Break-It Early Test Application is a monster of a download. For some, it might be just too much after it hit a 95GB filesize with the most recent update.
There’s no doubt that Halloween is supposed to be a scary day. After all, ghosts, ghouls, goblins, demons, witches and the likes come out to play on this festive day. For some, it’s a much enjoyed time of the year as kids, teens, men, and women enjoy the festivities. But for those who prefer to stay in the house and play a few games, something is running the Halloween season quite afoul.
In a recent update to Fallout 76: Break-It Early Test Application, PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One users are going to be in for a bit of a shock if they haven’t updated their game since yesterday. PC and Xbox One users can expect to download a whopping 48GB game once again as the game will need to be fully redownloaded in order to play.
Unfortunately. it seems that PlayStation 4 users are getting the worst of it as the file size for PlayStation 4 is sitting at a solid 95.5GB in order to play. Unfortunately, Bethesda has not revealed as to why the game is as massive as it is on PlayStation 4 compared to PC and Xbox One.
Unfortunately, in an error, the Fallout 76 application download even warned that the system would need a minimal amount of 140GB in order to complete the download, making Fallout 76 one of the biggest games to date.
At the time of writing, we can only assume it’s due to how the PlayStation 4 handles game downloads and system data for the games. Whatever it is, you may want to start considering a hard drive upgrade if you plan on putting Red Dead Redemption 2, Battlefield V and Call of Duty: Black Ops IV on the same hard drive as Fallout 76.
Fallout 76 is scheduled to release on Nov. 14, 2018, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned in for our thoughts on the B.E.T.A. leading up to its release as well as our review coming a few weeks after the official launch.
