The US and EU PS Store on the PS4 might have revealed the meager file size for the PS4 version of Star Wars Battlefront.
25GB? yeah could luck making it look as good as it does in the none gameplay trailer released yesterday
Don't forget it has no campaign Its all MP and supposedly there is only 4 maps.
They do compress downloads you know? Plus it could be placeholder size, the actual amount will be revealed closer to release.
4 planets. DICE already said there's more than 1 map per planet. Does no one read anymore?
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.
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
DICE confirmed at least 8 maps. Without the free dlc.
Did you even play the old battlefront games? There was no ''campaign'' only single player missions on multiplayer levels.
4 maps? They already said 8+ maps with 2 per planet at least.
Four planets, multiple maps.
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.
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.
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.
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.
They pre-order I guess because it's $5 for a potentially good or bad game. Nothing too major, can always be swapped out.
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.
This is N4G, logic has no place here.
people automatically assume that bigger equals better. It's a failed logic of too many people in this world
Size can be a good indicator for what's to come, what's the harm in thinking that?
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.
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 number.....it's like your purposely TRYING to not like something.
HUH...I would have thought the listing that the output being 720p would have been bigger news.
they always do this with none gameplay trailers just hope the final game looks even remotely close
It won't though, on the PC it might come close, have people not learnt this about typical business practise by now
Well according to DICE it does currently look like that on PS4. They just states it in an interview.
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!
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
It probably is a compressed size. The Witcher is 25GB as well on the XBox Store and around 30 when uncompressed
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.
this game is a long ways out do we really think they know the exact size of the disk at this point .
Last time I check it said minimum; the game is not complete...why would you think they know the final size at this point?
They could have doubled it with more content. A single player campaign coud have easily added more in terms of memory and fun.
Yeah because they've already made the game and no exactly what the size is. Pretty sure that's a bs number
People are so funny. One side its like "OMG game sizes are too big these days makes me delete games all teh TIME." The other side "Wow 25gb for a MP only game, thats really small hmmm makes me wonder how bad its going to look lolololol" Seriously..How about everyone just wait and see?
Map pack dlc's incoming
I'm not a big star wars fan, however, I can clearly that DICE and EA went through great length to use the best optimization process their money can buy. I'm willing to bet the original(high res) models they build for SWBF were reproduced at 8k 12k, and were downgraded( heavenly optimized) to get the alpha build to look the way it does on ps4. At 25gigs install size for SWBF means the game play/flow of the game is going to be very smooth and responsive. Hopefully, we get some actual game play.
Its an online multiplayer. So the large scenes in single player are gone, I think? So compare it to other multiplayer shooters in terms of file size. Also, if its released with only a few maps and dlc support, the game launches smaller than it really is, or will be. Dust 514 is under 5gb isn't it? That's last gen, but pushing 30gb as an online launch size isn't that small really. Dragon age Inquisition, which has multiplayer and a massive campaign if I remember is around 45gb and destiny is 40gb with a campaign too.
The game is 8 months from release. How do they already know the game file size? This is only an estimate.
Pretty sure 25GB is just a placeholder number
But that doesn't include all the upcoming patches which will be in GBs
im guessing having no campaign mode will make the file size a lot smaller. what was the filesize for hardline and bf4?
Patch day one of another 25 gigas, lol.
Could possibly be an installer file.
lol that's a placeholder, how could anyone know the filesize when the game is far from finished?
Probably only 25GB because there will be 60GB worth of day one DLC available...
Does anyone know the resolution screen size for SWBF game. The trailer is showing in a letterbox view? That also could explain for the small install size.
No story campaign no buy.
25GB is "meager" now, LOL.
