Fallout 4 file size confirmed for PS4 version, is smaller than Xbox One release

According to a listing on the U.K. and Dutch PlayStation Store, the PlayStation 4 version of Bethesda’s highly anticipated Fallout 4 will weigh in at 26.2GB.

This puts the PS4 version of the post-apocalyptic RPG slightly smaller than its Xbox One counterpart, which clocks in at around 2GB larger. However, it’s worth noting that other European PS Stores have the PS4 version listed at 38.2GB; presumably, this is due to the language options available in Germany, France, and Spain, although it’s still a considerably larger file than other countries. 

Fallout 4 is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on November 10. The game has been confirmed to run at a ‘steady’ 30fps on Sony’s console, and will be available for pre-loading prior to launch. Bethesda previously confirmed that the post-apocalyptic RPG will support Sony’s Remote Play feature, allowing players to transfer their adventure over to PlayStation Vita for some on-the-go gaming. Fallout 4 takes place in Boston, U.S., some 200 years after a nuclear war devastated the country, and like Fallout 3, players will emerge from the confines of the Vault to a post-apocalyptic wasteland inhabited by feral creatures and other hazards. Fallout 4 utilizes the Creation Engine, which was previously responsible for powering The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim on last-generation consoles, though it has been modified for new hardware. 

Unlike previous entries in the Fallout franchise, this latest title will include full voice acting for the player character, the ‘Sole Survivor,’ and feature branching dialogue paths similar to the Mass Effect series. The main character will be voiced by Brian T. Delaney and Courtenay Taylor for the male and female version of the Sole Survivor, respectively. Players will be joined in Fallout 4 by a canine companion named Dogmeat, and will also have the ability to build and deconstruct settlements and buildings throughout the game world. The game will also receive extensive post-launch support and has more lines of dialogue than Fallout 3 and Skyrim.
