As the video game worlds become larger and more realistic, the file size of these applications has also risen exponentially in recent years. 50GB has almost become the new norm, while AAA titles like Call of Duty have surpassed the 100GB mark. But what about Bethesda’s upcoming Starfield, which brings space exploration and gorgeous visuals? The title has been highly anticipated and many are expecting it to be huge considering the cosmic sandbox it will offer.
Starfield brings over 1000 planets and more than 100 star systems
Bethesda has already teased thousands of celestial objects in the playable area spread across numerous star systems. However, the studio has yet to share the preload date and its download size. But a recent online leak by an Amazon retailer revealed both of these details regarding Starfield. The title will apparently feature a humongous download size of 125GB. If this is true, the space-faring game will rank among the largest video games ever created.
Starfield’s massive download size isn’t surprising at all considering the scale of its in-game universe. The game is set to roll out on 6th September 2023 with millions of players awaiting its release. It will be available on PC, Xbox Series X, and Series S, and can also be pre-installed by Xbox Game Pass or PC Game Pass subscribers.
Starfield Preload Date
Publishers usually allow players to preload their games ahead of their release to allow them to experience titles as soon as they drop. The recent leak also revealed the preload date for Starfield, which is set for 9th August 2023. So get ready to hop on your spacecraft and explore the galaxy.
