The Last of Us: Part II is, without a doubt, one of the most anticipated stories of this generation as many people are looking forward to the release of the anticipated titles.
As in the case of most titles that are released towards the end of a console generation, the game will push the PS4 and PS5 to the limit, a feat that will also require a significant amount of storage space.
Big but not the biggest
According to a recent pre-order listing, the title will require 100GB of free space for the installation process. Some sources have stated that the size of the review copies received by video game journalists from Sony is around 78.3 GB, but the final version of the game will likely be a bit larger, especially if a day-one patch will be released.
Here are the sizes of a few other PS4 exclusives for reference:
- Uncharted 4 – 48 GB
- Marvel’s Spider-Man – 45 GB
- Uncharted The Lost Legacy – 44.7 GB
- God of War – 44.46 GB
- The Last of Us Remastered – 43.54 GB
- Killzone Shadowfall – 39.7 GB
- Days Gone – 38 GB (after the latest update)
- Bloodborne – 25.3 GB
Of course, titles like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare are considerably larger than this, but they are also multi-platform games and aren’t as well optimized as expensive ones.
As the release dates comes closer, the hype of the game continues to increase. Screenshots and trailers have reaveled a lush, diverse world that is filled to the brim with beautiful vistas and harrowing locations. Despite some controversies related to unexpected leaks that surfaced a few weeks ago, many fans can’t wait to learn what will happen with Ellie and Joel since the events of the first game.
A recent State of Play event highlighted some elements of the game.
