Red Dead Redemption 2 is Going to Take Up So Much Space on Your Console

Red Dead Redemption 2 is Going to Take Up So Much Space on Your Console

There's a snake in my boot.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is getting a new PS4 Pro bundle, and the box for the new bundle reveals something interesting insights about Rockstar's upcoming cowboy epic. For example, Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a massive 105GB install size on PS4 and Xbox One.

At 105GB, Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the biggest downloads on a console. Luckily you can expand your hard drive space fairly easily on both consoles, but if you choose to forgo one you better be prepared to delete some beefy downloads from your system.

Luckily the PS4 Pro comes with 1TB of storage.

Rockstar Intel also dug in and found some other interesting fine print on the Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 Pro bundle. For starters, online multiplayer in Red Dead Redemption 2 can support up to 32 players, though in what capacity it's hard to say. We still don't know how Red Dead Online will work after all.

PlayStation 4 players will also benefit from having exclusive access to DLC content a full 30 days earlier than Xbox One players. The previously announced partnership between Sony and Rockstar will probably resemble similar deals with other publishers where online content comes a bit earlier to the PS4, but like those deals, the content won't remain exclusive permanently.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out on October 26 for PS4 and Xbox One. Check out our Red Dead Redemption 2 guide for more info including news, trailers, and more.
