Mass Effect Andromeda PS4 file size revealed
BioWare has provided new details on the hotly-anticipated Mass Effect Andromeda, giving an idea of how much space the game will take up on your PlayStation 4 and Xbox One hard drives.
According to a post on Twitter, the Mass Effect Andromeda PS4 file size will clock in “at least 45, not more than 60GB” of space on your console’s hard drive. By comparison, PC users will need about 55GB to install the game.
In addition, BioWare confirmed that the development team is busy working on a day-one patch for the hotly-anticipated science-fiction RPG, following news that Andromeda went gold on Friday. The patch is on track to coincide with the game’s launch via EA Access and Origin Access, five days before the it hits stores for everyone else. Nothing is set in stone yet however, so this could change, notes producer Michael Gamble.
Mass Effect Andromeda is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One in the U.S. on March 21 and in Europe on March 23. The game takes place roughly 600 years after the events of the original trilogy, and sees players exploring the titular Andromeda region as newcomer Ryder; a pathfinder tasked with finding a new home for humanity. BioWare has noted that although exploration is a key aspect in Andromeda, it isn’t considered to be a typical open-world game.
Players will be able to explore uncharted planets via the Nomad, which is essentially a meatier version of the Mako from the original Mass Effect. As always, you can expect plenty of side quests to tuck into, and BioWare is aiming to have them on par with the same quality as those from The Witcher 3. Multiplayer is also returning, although things have changed somewhat from Mass Effect 3’s online offering.
