[/img]The Xbox store page for Fallout 4 has updated their listing, now giving a 28.12 GB file size for what will no doubt be one of fall’s biggest games. This is still much bigger than any previous Bethesda game on the HD consoles. Fallout 3 was 5.48 GB, Fallout: New Vegas was 4.75 GB, and their most recent game, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was 3.68 GB on the Xbox 360.
These file sizes may not reflect patches released post-launch, as some day one patches have been known to enlarge the base file size significantly such as Batman: Arkham Knight‘s over 3 GB day one patch on PlayStation 4. Whether Fallout 4 will contain a day one patch remains to be seen.
Man, out of all the games I’ve played, the game which took the most space on a hard drive for was Battlefield: 3. If I remember correctly it was close to, if not exactly, 30GB on the Xbox 360 if you had everything downloaded/installed.
…I know a lot of people who are going to be living on this game once it’s released!
Yes, but that pretty much my point.
Skyrim was a massive game, and they were able to have a compression that took 8GB down to 4GB.
So, Fallout 4 is most likely in the 50-60GB (or even higher) range, but with their compression it basically halves it.
