25GB? yeah could luck making it look as good as it does in the none gameplay trailer released yesterday

seanpitt231221d ago

Don't forget it has no campaign Its all MP and supposedly there is only 4 maps.

Geoff9001221d ago

They do compress downloads you know?

Plus it could be placeholder size, the actual amount will be revealed closer to release.

Allsystemgamer1221d ago

4 planets. DICE already said there's more than 1 map per planet. Does no one read anymore?

radiantmind131221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

It is not 4 maps. DICE or EA haven't announced how many maps will ship. Just the 4 worlds that the maps will be on. 5 including dlc.

I try not to assume too much as I'm usually wrong, however it would be pretty safe to say that there will be more than 1 map per world.

My guess is probably 2-3 maps per with final count around 10-12 maps.

Eonjay1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

There are 4 planets Not maps. there are more than 2 maps per world so that's at least 12 maps.

Also, the game isn't even done yet so the 25GB is obviously a placeholder

Mikefizzled1221d ago

DICE confirmed at least 8 maps. Without the free dlc.

Neixus1221d ago

Did you even play the old battlefront games?
There was no ''campaign'' only single player missions on multiplayer levels.

Rimeskeem1221d ago

4 maps?

They already said 8+ maps with 2 per planet at least.

Primal1221d ago

Four planets, multiple maps.

Randostar1221d ago

4 planets, each one containing 2 - 3 maps.

I'm just amazed that people will happily buy a game that they haven't even seen any gameplay footage of yet. I'll never understand why people preorder games, it's the stupidest thing throwing money at companies just because you like the look of their carefully crafted advertisements.

vallencer1221d ago

They don't get any money until you buy it. You know that right? I mean you usually get stuff for pre ordering and if you decide you don't want it just get your money back. I don't understand this hate of pre ordering.

spacedelete1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

don't be amazed. people are dumb sheep. there are people who paid full price and preordered The Order. most gamers are dumb. no wonder these game companies take advantage. they would be crazy not to.

bananaboats1221d ago

I pre-order, primarily from gamestop because:

1. I can pay for the game over time.
2. The bonus content you sometimes get.
3. I'm competent enough to know if I'm going to like a game or not. I currently have 4 games on pre-order and I wouldn't spend my money on them if I didn't think they would be good.

Just like vallencer said the company doesn't get the money right away but it lets them know how many people they have that pre-ordered.

HammadTheBeast1220d ago

They pre-order I guess because it's $5 for a potentially good or bad game. Nothing too major, can always be swapped out.

Gority1220d ago (Edited 1220d ago )

A lot of places you can preorder and you don't get billed till the game releases? What's so hard to understand about that? And i know $60 is a decent amount of money, but for some people it's not. If you know you have a bunch of friends getting the same game, it isn't exactly as big of a risk.

Since when does download size correlate with the level of graphical fidelity of a game?

Hint: It doesn't.

Ravenor1221d ago

This is N4G, logic has no place here.

bananaboats1221d ago

people automatically assume that bigger equals better. It's a failed logic of too many people in this world

Hellsvacancy1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

Size can be a good indicator for what's to come, what's the harm in thinking that?

Pandamobile1221d ago

The harm is that it's a false equivalency.

Games that have obese file sizes are usually more indicative of lengthy pre-rendered cut scenes, uncompressed audio and wide localization support than of graphics.

Qrphe1221d ago

They probably haven't figured it would not have cutscenes if that were the case.

* You guys realize that most of the size of games comes from the audio right?

Stop acting like you know what 25 GB equates to.

You don't.

* For all we know, you remove the audio, the DATA could only be 5-10 GB.....

like go get some stats so we can discuss before you just start acting like 25 GB = not a good looking game.

So obsessed with what a's like your purposely TRYING to not like something.

ManOfTheYear11220d ago

HUH...I would have thought the listing that the output being 720p would have been bigger news.

EdnaJones971221d ago

they always do this with none gameplay trailers just hope the final game looks even remotely close

Hellsvacancy1221d ago

It won't though, on the PC it might come close, have people not learnt this about typical business practise by now

Allsystemgamer1221d ago

Well according to DICE it does currently look like that on PS4. They just states it in an interview.

Randostar1221d ago

Well the DEMO that thousands of people saw yesterday was running on a PS4. They said it looked almost identical to the trailer. It def keeps that cinematic graphic look when your playing, at least thats what everyone who has seen it has said...........THEY MUST ALL BE LIARS THOUGH!

jerethdagryphon1221d ago

Chances are thats the download size compressed bloodborne is 29gig from a disc so no idea driveclub from digital is 22 with dlc and updates

BartMoons1221d ago

It probably is a compressed size. The Witcher is 25GB as well on the XBox Store and around 30 when uncompressed

Eiyuuou1221d ago (Edited 1221d ago )

I hope they'll do an open beta. That's pretty much the only way they'll have a chance to convince me to buy this game atm.

bleedsoe9mm1221d ago

this game is a long ways out do we really think they know the exact size of the disk at this point .
