Mass Effect: Andromeda File Size Revealed, Preloading Begins For Some

Preloading is now underway, for some players at least.


Mass Effect: Andromeda is out next week. Now, we've learned the game's file size on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as preloading has begun for some players.

According to user reports on Twitter and Reddit (via GamesRadar and PlayStation Universe), the Xbox One file size is 42.19 GB, with the PlayStation 4 edition coming in at 42.9 GB. A day-one update is also in the works; BioWare is expecting to have it available for later this week.

As announced previously, the Andromeda PC specs show that players will need at least 55 GB of free space to install the game.

BioWare has yet to make any official announcements regarding preloading, but if it does, that should happen soon. We'll report back with more details as they become available.

Andromeda officially launches on March 21, but a 10-hour trial of the game will be available on Xbox One and PC for EA/Origin Access subscribers starting on March 16.

GameSpot will have lots more on Andromeda in the coming days as part of our new video series, "The Story of Mass Effect: Andromeda." You can watch a trailer for that below.
