The pre-load of Final Fantasy XV just started in Japan, and this revealed the digital download size of the game on Sony’s console.
The game will take a very sizable 50.698 gigabytes of your bandwidth, with 6.593 gigabytes required before you can play the beginning. This isn’t too far from the download size of the Xbox One version that was revealed a couple of weeks ago (50.94 gigabytes).
As usual, there can be a limited degree of variation between download sizes depending on region, but when Square Enix mentioned that they needed to add cutscenes from Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV and the Omen CGI trailer via the day one “Crown Update” patch, they were not joking, the game definitely fills up a Blu-ray disk. Incidentally, the pre-load already comes with update 1.01 pre-installed.
Incidentally, the PlayStation Store mentions only a 40.5 Gigabyte download size on all regions, but that’s obviously inaccurate, as it often happens with pre-release indications.
We’re only three days away from release, as you can see by the count-down artwork below by Art Director Tomohiro Haswgawa. Is your body ready yet?
