67.1 GB is nice than PS4's 48.16. It means we are really going to see graphical improvements. This game looks fantastic anyway in PS4..

The reason game companies are bloating their file sizes is because of people like you. "OMG LOOK HOW BIG THIS GAME IS IT MUST HAVE SO MUCH TO DO" and "OMG LOOK AT SEKIRO LESS THAN 20GB PFFFTTTT IT MUST BE SUCH A SMALL GAME".

The most important improvement is going to be the frame rate, not the graphics.

" "OMG LOOK HOW BIG THIS GAME IS IT MUST HAVE SO MUCH TO DO" and "OMG LOOK AT SEKIRO LESS THAN 20GB PFFFTTTT IT MUST BE SUCH A SMALL GAME"."

He made neither of those points so your post just comes across as a frantic rant.

"The most important improvement is going to be the frame rate, not the graphics."

lol...what? This is PC. Why are you pretending it is either or?

While i agree that frame rate is better than graphics *to a point* i also think you're conflating the point Sam was making into something pretty ridiculous, nobody mentioned Sekiro to begin with and the only developer bloating their file sizes are Infinity Ward and that's for a whole different set of reasons.

Just to clarify my thoughts, Sekiro is amazing, and considering the game itself the file size is a great representation of what a focused and more linear game can be without tacking on needless modes and features.
HZD is gonna be great on PC.

Ummm the game is still the same size whether he says something or not lmao 😂. Chill man

Most of that is uncompressed audio... Sekiro doesn't have as much audio.

That probably means better assetts. Thats another "Decima" game on PC. Death stranding looked like pretty well optimalized for PC. I hope HZD will be also.

i can't preload it. there isn't an option to do so.

Please enjoy. The game's combat, world and story are very unique. I'm sure the port will be amazing, Sony don't half-ass it. This game is amazing.

Game could be greater by enabling flying mounts, and adding more melee weapons.

nitus1050d ago

The only melee weapon in HZD is the spear and that can only be upgraded to +1 in the early stages of the game. If you have the "Frozen Wilds" DLC you can get an item that will allow you to upgrade your spear although you do get upgrade items during the game they are useless until you get the spear module (it's a quest item) in the DLC.

The game does have fast travel between bonfires if you have a travel pack or the unlimited travel pack. Of course, you have three different mounts you can override if you want to travel to places where you have not activated a bonfire.

No matter the difficulty level the most useful method of killing or overriding a machine is a technique I would call "luring" which basically attracts the attention of the enemy by using a weak arrow and when the enemy is in range use "whistle" when the machine's light has turned "blue" (it is suicide if the machine light is yellow). It must be noted that this technique may not work on all machines since some actually run away.

The whistle can also be used to attract human enemies. Obviously you should always be in the red grass before trying a lure.
