Hideo Kojima's upcoming mysterious action title Death Stranding will require a reasonable 55 GB of hard drive space. It's also possible that the size will be bigger due to a day one patch.
Death Stranding release date is now less than a month away and despite all the trailers, story and gameplay details, the game still remains a mystery to many. The creator Hideo Kojima said that he is creating a brand new genre with Death Stranding, calling the game "a social strand system".
One of the things that is no longer a mystery, however, is the size of the game's download file. According to a screenshot by one ResetEra user, Death Stranding will require a minimum of 55 GB of PlayStation 4 hard drive space.
As you can see in the screenshot here , the number is located at the bottom of the image, which has been posted on Best Buy yesterday. It's on the Death Stranding Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro and it states that "55 GB minimum" is the official requirement.
At the moment, Kojima Productions and Sony are yet to officially announce the download size date but it should be long before we get the confirmation, since the game's launch day is closer than ever.
While 55 GB is not the biggest game you'll find today, many players would certainly appreciate if Sony allows them to pre-load it a couple of days before the release. This way, those with a slow internet connection can have everything up and running before the servers go live.
It's also possible that Death Stranding has a day one patch lined up with bug fixes and other improvements so add a couple of more GBs to the leaked download size.
Death Stranding is officially hitting the shelves on 11 November 2019 for PlayStation 4. For more news about the game, take a look at Kojima's comments on the new genre and potential next-gen release .
