The Division 2’s First Major Update Will be Around 90GB on PS4, Closer to 50GB on Xbox One and PC
Be prepared to download a hefty new update next week before diving into The Division 2.
Ubisoft’s The Division 2 is set to release next week and if you’re planning on picking it up, it seems like you might want to start clearing out some space on your hard drive right now.
In a new post on Ubisoft’s official website today, it was revealed that Title Update 1 will roll out next week alongside the release of The Division 2 and holy smokes, is it a hefty patch. Title Update 1 will be required to download before playing The Division 2 and if you purchase a physical copy of the game, you’ll first have to install it to your system of choice before then downloading the update. For those on Xbox One and PC, Title Update 1 is said to be between 48GB and 52GB while PS4 players will see that update size nearly doubled between 88GB and 92GB.
Even though update sizes for games, especially day one patches, have become increasingly large in years, this install size of The Division 2, especially on PS4, is staggeringly large. Ubisoft also specified that if you have already downloaded The Division 2, a new update called Title Update 1.5 will also be pushed out on March 11. This update will only be about 2GB in size and will fix some of the widely reported issues from the game’s open beta which recently took place.
As I said at the top, if you’re getting The Division 2 for yourself right now, it might be time to either clean out some space on your hard drive or expand your storage capacity. You have a week to do so as The Division 2 will be launching on PS4, Xbox One, and PC next Friday, March 15.
