We reported at the start of this month that the Deathloop PS5 file size clocks in at just 17.3GB, but it’s now emerged that this is actually a result of the console’s impressive kraken compression technology at work.
According to PlayStation Game Size, Deathloop initially weighed in at 25.9GB for version 01.000.000; however, a second database listing for 01.001.000 has the game clocking in at 17.3GB. In other words, this update looks set to reduce the sizes of Arkane Lyon’s by an impressive 8.6.GB.
