Red Dead Redemption 2 Takes Up A Ton Of Storage Space
Better make some room on your console.
With its sprawling setting and sheer range of activities to partake in, Rockstar's open-world western, Red Dead Redemption 2, is a huge game on PS4 and Xbox One, and you'll need to have quite a bit of space on your console to install it. The developer has opened a support page for the title on its website, confirming its file size on PS4 and Xbox One--and it's even bigger than previously estimated.
According to the support page, Red Dead Redemption 2 weighs in at 99 GB on PS4. You'll need to have even more room if you're going digital, as the installation process will require an additional 50 GB on top of that. Xbox One owners, meanwhile, will need to have 107 GB to install the game.
There has been much speculation over how big Red Dead Redemption 2's size is, although all previous estimates have indicated that it was going to be quite hefty. The box for the Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Pro bundle suggested it was going to be 105 GB, while the Microsoft Store listed it as approximately 88 GB.
If you're purchasing Red Dead Redemption 2 digitally, you'll be able to pre-load it starting October 18, at 9 PM PT (12 AM ET on Friday). You'll get other benefits for pre-ordering the game, such as the Ardennes War Horse, Outlaw Survival Kit, extra cash in Red Dead Redemption 2's story mode, and bonus GTA$ for Grand Theft Auto V's GTA Online mode.
