How Big Is The Update?

If you are on a PlayStation platform for Far Cry 6, you better set aside some space, because update 1.04 is a hefty one. Meanwhile, the Xbox versions are not quite as big thankfully.

PlayStation 4: Between 49 GB and 60 GB depending on region 
PlayStation 5: ~90 GB 
Xbox One: between 13 GB and 19 GB 
Xbox Series X/S: between 14 GB and 20 GB 

As directly announced by Ubisoft, you can see just how big the PS5 version especially is above, with the PS4 version also being large. The Xbox versions are no larger than 20 GB though, so not as much space will be needed.

According to Ubisoft, the PC update will be 54 GB + 47 for HD Texture Pack when it does release soon as well.

Far Cry 6 Update 1.04 Patch Notes

The second title update for Far Cry 6 known as 1.04 is focused on bug fixes, performance improvements, as well as upcoming content for the future.

In addition, this update will actually be removing the Dani & Danny vs. Everybody mission that was not meant to be released already.
