SIE Bend Studio' zombie survival Days Gone will require at least 67GB of your PS4 hard drive size on launch. The game will be playable after 27 GB and the download size does not include a minor day one patch that should fix some bugs.
The wait for Sie Bend Studio's PlayStation 4 exclusive Days Gone is almost over now, and those of you who pre-ordered the game are probably wondering when will you be to pre-load the game or how big the installation file actually is.
Well, we have the answer to one of those questions. Days Gone's digital version will be a hefty one and will take 67GB of your PlayStation 4 hard drive. If you think that's a bit too much, the download will be even bigger as the day one patch is not included in the mentioned number. However, the patch should be a smaller one with some minor bug fixes.
Unfortunately, Bend Studio are yet to confirm if Days Gone will be available for pre-load but given that the download size is pretty big, it's probably just a matter of time before the devs officially announce that you can start pre-loading the game.
Those with slower internet connection always appreciate the feature, and to make it even easier for those guys, Days Gone will be playable after you download the first 27 GB of the game. Of course, you won't be able to explore the whole map and access some missions before the full download completes, but the first few missions will probably be enough to keep you buys while the rest of the game downloads.
When compared to other PlayStation 4 exclusives, Days Gone download size is really massive. For example, Horizon Zero Dawn with its huge world is just 40 GB while God of War and Marvel's Spider-man take 45 GB each.
Judging by the sizes, Days Gone's open world may be much bigger than New York in Spider-man or the snowy wilds in Horizon Zero Dawn but we'll have to wait for the release to see if that is really the case.
Days Gone is out on 26 April 2019 for PlayStation 4.
