The game is under 50 GB, what you are seeing is how patching works as your are holding onto the previous version (4.2 update) as well as the 4.3 update. The actual game size is smaller. :honoring:

Well if the cap is 50 GB and the game is above 50 GB then yes

Hello Max,

 

Would you be willing to clarify a couple things?

1: Why is update 4.2 still being held onto (in case the game needs to do an emergency rollback perhaps)?

2: What is the size of update 4.2 as it currently sits on our consoles?

3: What is the base game size without the updates applied to them?

I am just trying to get a gauge of how much space there is for the dev team to work with currently. Sorry if this is asking too much...

 

Thanks in advance! :honoring:

apparently 50 is now GREATER than 51.5.

 

I've been mathing incorrectly for more than 40 years. Oh wait...is this the new common core math?

 

I imagine that common core would explain it like this...

 

50 > 49

50 > 2.5

Therefore...

50 > 49 + 2.5

My guess is if you deleted the entire game and re-downloaded it, it would be at or below 50 gig if what Max says is the truth.

 

Anyone willing to delete and re-download to test this?  I'm on slow DSL so I will not attempt this.

If you go to the game in the store you will see it shows a size of 47.2 GB for the base game.

If you want to be one of the 47 Ronin check out our recruitment post and then send a message to Prof935 (xbox) or dimka935 (ps4).

If the 50 gb  limit is not real, why would WG withhold maps? The only conspiracy theory floated is the x box 360 theory which has a bunch of holes.
