Battlefield 1 and Gears of War 4 Xbox One File Sizes Revealed – PC Pre-Load for Gears of War 4 Live Now
Battlefield 1 lands on current-gen gaming platforms in less than a month, exactly 10 days after the most anticipated game in Microsoft’s critically acclaimed military science fiction third-person shooter video game series hits the shelves for Xbox One and PC. If you wish to enjoy all the amazing stuff that both the titles have to offer, you might want to clear up some space on your Xbox One storage, as both the games weigh nearly a 100 GB in size.
Details about the file size of the upcoming WWI-themed game come from some users on Reddit and NeoGAF community forms who claim that the game has already been pre-loaded onto their Xbox One consoles, revealing the space that it will take on your systems. WindowsCentral suggests that pre-loading is not officially available for the game right now, as they also tried to trigger the download early but it did not work. After deleting and re-downloading the pre-order, however, the game’s file size was revealed. As the screenshot below shows, Battlefield 1 will take up 42.6 GB of space on Microsoft’s latest console.
