Just Cause 3 PS4 file size confirmed, is smaller than Xbox One version

A listing on the PlayStation Store has confirmed the file size for the PlayStation 4 version of Avalanche Studios’ hotly anticipated Just Cause 3.

The upcoming action-adventure sequel will weigh in at approximately 35.9GB on Sony’s current-generation console; slightly smaller than the 42.49GB required of the Xbox One version of the game. The listing is available on both the Australian and European PlayStation Stores, although the U.S. PlayStation Store also mentions a placeholder file of 9.5MB (via WCCTech).

Just Cause 3 is due out on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on December 1, making it one of the last major video game releases of the year. It was previously confirmed that the open-world sequel will run at 1080p on PS4, beating the Xbox One version in the resolution stakes. Avalanche Studios also revealed that it at one point considered adding a multiplayer component to the game, although in the end opted to focus entirely on the single-player campaign. Check out the latest trailer for Just Cause 3 to see how the title is shaping up.

The sequel takes place on the fictional island of Medici, with players controlling protagonist Rico Rodriguez as he returns home after leaving The Agency. However, he soon discovers the island is in fact under the control of General Di Ravello, a brutal dictator hell bent on world domination. Many of the signature features of the game’s predecessor, 2010’s Just Cause 2, will return for the sequel, including the grappling hook and parachute, although their functionality has been slightly improved this time around.

New to the table this time includes a wingsuit, which allows Rodriguez to navigate the game world more easily by gliding across the landscape. As ever, destruction will be a main theme, with players able to wreak havoc across the island as they see fit with an arsenal of powerful weaponry, including shotguns, RPGs, machine-guns and more. Furthermore, Just Cause 3 will include an assortment of vehicles such as planes, exotic cars, ships and more.
