The PS4 Fallout 4 release date is just a few weeks away and we think there are a few things that pre-orderers, and potential buyers, need to have on their radar as we close in on one of the year’s most anticipated games.
In June, Bethesda took the stage at E3 2015 and an announced a follow-up to its smash hit from 2008. Fallout 4 is coming to replace Fallout 3 later this year and it will be released on three platforms including Xbox One, PC and PS4.
Fallout 4 has been on sale since June with Bethesda and many retailers taking pre-orders for the regular version of the game, the sold out Fallout 4 Pip Boy Edition, and several exclusive Fallout 4 bundles. Many people have already ordered, others are taking their time.
In the weeks since the big unveil, we’ve seen Fallout 4 release details pour out of Bethesda as the studio tempts gamers with its first big release since Elder Scrolls Skyrim. The Fallout 4 marketing machine is at work and there are a number of important details that buyers need to keep in mind.
With a Fallout 4 release date confirmed for November 10th, we’re just a little more than a month away from touch down. Today, we want to take a look at a few things we think PS4 Fallout 4 buyers need to have on their radar as we enter the month of October.
We’ve been taking a close look at the PS4 Fallout 4 release and this roundup will get you caught up to speed if you haven’t been paying attention. This is aimed at those of you that have already bought the game and those of you that are still thinking about putting in a Fallout 4 pre-order.
PS4 Fallout 4 File Size
Over the weekend, Microsoft revealed what could be the final size of Fallout 4 for Xbox One. According to Microsoft, the game will check in around 28GB in size.
This is actually pretty reasonable for a game of Fallout 4's size. Still, it would require many people without a ton of space or without an external hard drive to move some files around.
We'd expect the size of Fallout 4 for PS4 to be in and around the same size as the Xbox One version of the game. There might be a slight difference but we wouldn't expect the difference to be overwhelming. So, perhaps, the game will be around 28GB.
Now, it's important to note that Bethesda's Pete Hines says that the company "haven't given out file size or system spec info for any platform." So, it's not clear if this 28GB file size will stick. For what it's worth, the file size is still visible on Microsoft's website.
