Red Dead Redemption 2 massive game size
Red Dead Redemption 2 has a whopping file size of 89.2GB which is slightly smaller than the estimated 100GB people were talking about last week. Since Red Dead Redemption 2 has a very large file size, it appears that the game will be releasing with two separate discs. Although this is quite rare for a PlayStation 4 game, it is not the first to have a physical copy with two separate discs. Seeing that the game has a very large size, Rockstar is boasting that this will be the largest map they have ever created. Bigger maps lead to more adventures. We can only imagine the amount of playtime Red Dead Redemption 2 might offer. So you better start downloading the Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-load as soon as you can.
On a side note, Rockstar is hyping up the game’s release with the launch trailer which is going to be shown tomorrow. So players all around the globe will be able to get a bit more feel of the good old Wild West.
