Fallout 4 on Xbox One Has a File Size Just Under 30GB

[/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!

Skyrim was about 8+GB when uncompressed on PC, so probably similar for Fallout 4. Bethesda typically does a good job with their compression.

Simply cannot wait for this game though, should probably change my avatar at that point, lol.

But Fallout 4’s land size is much bigger than Skyrim’s. Won’t that make it bigger?

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.

Ahhh gotcha. Thanks for teaching me something, dad

Oh man, I can’t wait for this game to come out!
