Day One Fallout 76 Patch is Larger Than the Main Game; Weighs in at Roughly 51GB
It appears that the Day One Fallout 76 patch will actually be larger than the main game.
As spotted by PSU, the day-one patch for PlayStation 4 owners clocks in at a whopping 51GB, while the download size of Fallout 76 is ‘only’ 45GB. In total, Fallout 76 owners on PlayStation 4 will need around 96GB of free space to install Fallout 76 and its day-one patch.
The exact contents of Fallout 76’s day-one update are unknown but it will likely address performance issues and changes based on community feedback from the game’s B.E.T.A.
Bethesda already released an update for Fallout 76’s B.E.T.A. last week, which included performance and stability improvements alongside various bug fixes and enemy balance changes.
The game was officially announced ahead of E3 2018. Details about the game were revealed during Bethesda's E3 conference.
Reclamation Day, 2102. Twenty-five years after the bombs fall, you and your fellow Vault Dwellers—chosen from the nation’s best and brightest – emerge into post-nuclear America. Play solo or join together as you explore, quest, build, and triumph against the wasteland’s greatest threats.
“We’ve been asked forever to bring multiplayer to one of our worlds,” said Todd Howard, Game Director at Bethesda Game Studios. “And once we had this idea, we knew it was perfect for Fallout. It’s great to finally share this game and this world with everyone.”
Fallout 76 will release within 3 days on November 14 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
