    No, it's just year 2019. It's a huge open world with 4K textures. Even indie games nowadays can be 20-30GB large.

    Especially with photogrammetry getting involved more and more, you end up with insane texture definition out of the box.

    I can only hope that this huge disk space requirement is making the game indeed looking better... this is a lot of data... anybody know how much installation space the game takes up on consoles?

    It was around 110GB on Xbox One X last I checked, but it could be more by now because game received many updates.

    pretty sure it's still 107GB on consoles, keeping in mind they still have the 4K textures in the installation.

    They should have released a base game for 1080p, and offer 4K textures for the other 1% of the world that uses 4K monitors.

    The game might be 65GB then.

    I seem to remember reading a while back that the bigger size is due to the sound files being uncompressed on PC because the PC doesn't have the dedicated chip to decompress sound on the fly but the consoles do... Could be way off though

    This would make sense, and used to be like that with other games iirc. I'd favour such a solution tbh.

    The game is this size because it's required to simulate the horse b*llocks accurately ;)

    Sorry I couldn't resist making a joke about the genital simulation in the game...

    99GB on PS4, 107GB on XB1, 150GB on Steam. Seems legit.

    High res textures also benefit lower resolutions. Also, 90GB wouldn't make up only textures. The game by itself is already very large.

    And honestly, if you need to bargain for a couple dozen gigabytes in a game install, maybe you should just be buying more storage.

    I just had no idea that it was getting released on PC finally. I don't give a rat's ass about HD space.

    I'm feeling pretty good about the 2TB nvme drive I bought earlier this year (to load games from). Did I really need it? Well, 150GB!? Sheesh!


    On a side note, I'm pretty stoked to play RDR2 on PC. I've never even played the first game (no consoles)

    Will this game have a option for fps view like gta5 on pc?
    Wonder how much Vram this game will use running 4k.

    Yeah... there's some truth to that. Just buy more storage is true, then again, download this game and many people would wish it was 65GB instead of 110. Which btw is not just a couple more but double the size. Not everybody has 1Gbps ethernet ;)
    Hence I was wondering what a console player does... having 3 or 4 games running on a console defeats it's purpose to be "just playing" compared to a PC, at least imho.

    If you haven't gotten enough space you need to manage your installations, download the game etc. etc. isn't that just like on a PC these days? Anybody using consoles to confirm or crush my idea of this?

    Its not a HDD space but SSD space. Many have no that much to spare.

    PC reviewers who review console ports that have lower res textures: "The textures are blurry. This isn't a proper PC port."

    PC reviewers who review console ports that have proper high res textures: "This is a joke, this game needs 150GB, wtf unacceptable."
