Even with a few weeks remaining, PlayStation users now have a clear notion of how to make room for the file size of Battlefield 2042. The next-generation consoles and PCs with bespoke hard drives have been available for about a year. The video game file sizes have remained a big problem for players. While it may seem inconsequential, the main reason this problem has risen in prominence is the ongoing increase in file size requirements. It is especially for games like Call of Duty: Warzone. These games get new material years after release.
Battlefield 2042 Live Service Model
The live service model is being embraced by Battlefield 2042. Players may expect frequent updates and content, as well as a seasonal update structure and a battle pass. Fans can also expect the game to chew away at their hard drives in the long run.
Battlefield 2042 File Size
Despite the switch to live service, Battlefield 2042 does not appear to be overly demanding on the player’s hard drives. According to the Twitter account PlayStationSize, the European Union edition of Battlefield 2042 demands a file size of 42.717GB of space. The US version is somewhat smaller at 42.389 GB. It is uncertain why there is a difference. However, some suggest that it may be related to language audio files.
Fans should be pleased with the current file size. The figure is likely to rise over time. It’s certainly surprising given the ever-increasing download sizes of most modern games these days, such as its rival shooter franchise Call of Duty. Even non-shooter games, such as the upcoming racing title Forza Horizon 5 have stunned fans with a 103GB download for PC and Xbox Series X. This is a figure that many undoubtedly underestimated.
Battlefield 2042 Pricing and Release Date
