Still less space than Call of Duty: Ghosts’ install size.

EA has revealed a new video touting the ability to pre-load the PC version of DICE’s Battlefield 4. More interesting than the ability to do the same, the video reveals that the overall pre-load size is 28.3 GB. Check out the video at the 0:30 mark for confirmation.

Battlefield 4 will occupy roughly 30 GB of hard disk space, but it will also require 8 GB of RAM and Windows 8 64-bit to run properly. Check out the PC system requirements here. And to think that it’s 10 GB less than the PC version of Call of Duty: Ghosts’ install size, which stands at 40 GB.

Battlefield 4 will be releasing on October 29th in North America and November 1st in Europe for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. It will also launch for PlayStation 4 on November 15th/29th in North America/Europe, while the Xbox One version will release on November 22nd across 13 territories worldwide. Stay tuned for more information and our official review for the game when it releases.

    28.3 GB is a lot! Are pre-load sizes always this large or is this the minimum we can expect for PC games in the next few years?

      I think this is a rather large game, as even some MMO’s are 15-20GB. But, it’s also not that crazy. Games will continue to get larger as the amount of space needed to store the textures and just the game itself ramps up in complexity, which slowly happens over time. Hard drives should get cheaper accordingly for the most part, but I would say BF4 seems a bit ahead of the curve and is a rather large game right out of the box. But, I see that as a good thing!

      Yeah, COD: Ghosts is utilizing Sub-D in order to smooth the image and make the game smoother overall so perhaps if more games start using that games won’t take up as much space and instead allow for more innovation. Why don’t more people use SSHD instead of HDD if it’s better? Yes, being ahead is a good thing as now they’ll set the benchmark for what comes next.
