It's just under four months till the final release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and after many delays we now know a little bit more about the file size of the game, although these details may only apply to the PS4 version of the game.
The open world in The Witcher 3 is expected to be very large, and the developers of the game, Projekt Red, have promised that the game would have over 100 hours of gameplay in it for those willing to explore all of the in-game content.
So, how does that translate to game file size? It turns out there is a pretty big correlation between game longevity and open world size to the overall game file size. The Witcher 3: Big Wild Hunt will be a minimum of 50GB.
We say a minimum because the blu-ray disc is absolutely brimmed full with data, and if any additional content or extra patches are added, this will only increase the file size. I wouldn’t be surprised if The Witcher 3: Big Wild Hunt required a larger install at launch after the 50GB already on the disc as well.
Will you be buying Big Wild Hunt, and if so, how bothered are you about the size of the game?
