Fallout 76’s launch date is just around the corner. Like almost all major titles, Bethesda has confirmed that the post-apocalyptic title will need to download a “Day One” patch, before the game is even playable. The irony of the patch? It’s actually bigger than the game’s base installation.
Specifically, the day one patch comes in at a staggering 54GB, while the base game’s size measures in at 45GB. The total file size, by the way, will come up to 96.6GB, according to PlayStation Universe.
Mind you, the update and base game file sizes mentioned here are just for the PlayStation 4 (PS4), with no mention of the file sizes for both the Xbox One or PC. Given this bit of news, though, it’s safe to say that the story’s going to be the same for the other two platforms.
While it may seem big, Bethesda had mentioned at length what the day one patches would bring. This includes support for Ultra-wide display, the addition of Push-To-Talk for chat, an FOV Slider, and the patching of some known bugs in-game.
Fallout 76 is slated for a 14 November launch. The game will be available on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
