Although its release is still a few months away, fans of Resident Evil Village are eagerly awaiting the game’s arrival. While waiting for a digital copy of a game to download is a reality for gamers, knowing how much space is required to install the title is important, and now players can get an idea of how much space it will take up.
Recent trailers for Resident Evil Village have impressed gamers with their visuals, and those graphics will take up a fair amount of space. While gamers can play the latest Resident Evil with next-gen systems, PCs, or the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X / S consoles, anyone choosing the game will need to make sure they have enough available hard drive space to download and download it. install it.
Courtesy of a Microsoft Store listing, gamers now have an idea of what to expect. The Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S versions of Resident Evil Village are scheduled to take up 50.02 GB of space. This is a notable increase from Resident Evil 7, more than double the file size it required on all of its available platforms. Of course, times have changed since then, and graphics continue to evolve and become more technologically demanding.
Since Resident Evil Village is a cross-generation game, it’s likely to take full advantage of what the previous generation of consoles can do, while also taking advantage of the power of newer systems. However, despite the difference in capabilities, it is interesting to note that there is no indication that the file size is different between the Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S versions of the game.
Although Resident Evil Village is a step up from RE 7’s file size, it is still relatively light in terms of space usage. While some developers still manage to efficiently compress their games to save space, many gamers are undoubtedly used to the reality that games are approaching 200GB these days. This has even raised concerns that games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare won’t fit on players’ hard drives. For most gamers, cleaning up about 50GB of space shouldn’t be a huge burden.
While there are still many mysteries about Resident Evil Village, file size is no longer one of them. However, gamers planning to get the title on anything other than an Xbox should expect a slight variation in file sizes between systems. With Resident Evil 7, the console versions of the game took up roughly 20GB, but PC gamers needed to remove an additional 4GB. As such, making a little extra space to be safe couldn’t hurt.
Resident Evil Village will release for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S on May 7.
