Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Day One Update Is Reportedly Bigger Than Game Itself

Activision's new skateboarding game is out today with a major update.


Activision today launched the next Tony Hawk skateboarding game, Pro Skater 5, and now we've learned that the title's day-one patch is larger than the game's baseline install size. That's according to GameCabin, which says the game itself is 4.6 GB, with the patch weighing in at 7.7 GB.

Pro Skater 5 is available today in North America across Xbox One and PlayStation 4, both digitally and on a physical disc at retailers. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, which lack the game's "seamless" online multiplayer feature, will be released in November.

Our review for Pro Skater 5 is coming later, but for now, you can check out GameSpot's retrospective on the franchise in the video above, featuring insight directly from Tony Hawk himself. You can also check out our E3 impressions for more on what to expect.

It's unclear why the Pro Skater 5 day-one patch is so large, but it could have something to do with how the game's visuals saw a dramatic change late in development.
