Red Dead Redemption 2 Download Size Leaked

Highlights

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 may be 50GB
  • The day one patch may total 3GB
  • The game is out on October 26

The Red Dead Redemption 2 download size has been leaked. And if you were expecting a 105GB download, think again. It appears that the actual Red Dead Redemption 2 download size is 50GB on PS4. There's a day one patch of 3GB as well. The source for this information is Rockstar Games fan site Rockstar Intel. The site also claims that the previously rumoured 105GB file size is "an exaggerated number to make sure you have enough space - companies do it all the time." Furthermore, it states that the normal PS4 and PS4 Pro won't have much of a difference in download size. No download size for Red Dead Redemption 2 on the Xbox One or Xbox One X has been made public just yet. It could be more considering that it may be native 4K. We won't have to wait too long to find out with the game out on October 26.

Previously, the official Xbox France Twitter account has stated that the Red Dead Redemption 2 resolution on Xbox One X is native 4K (3840x2160) along with support for HDR as well.

This is in sharp contrast to Sony's stance on Red Dead Redemption 2's resolution on the PS4 Pro, which is simply said to be 4K without any clarity if any techniques used to give the effect of 4K like checkerboard rendering are used. Although the game will make use of the PS4 Pro's built-in supersampling feature.

The penultimate Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer showed off a generous amount of gameplay on the PS4 Pro. So much so that video game tech analysis site, Digital Foundry has been able to piece together Red Dead Redemption 2's PS4 Pro resolution.

 

Spoiler alert: it's not 4K. Rather, it's a 12.5 per cent increase over 1440p - a more regular number we see on PS4 Pro supported titles. The same applies to the very last trailer for the game shown off earlier this week, a 1920x2160 PS4 Pro resolution with signs of reconstruction to output at 3840x2160.
