Wolfenstein: The New Order PS4 patch is not mandatory

The day-one patch for the PlayStation 4 version of Wolfenstein: The New Order is not mandatory, it has been reported.

As previously reported on PSU, the update weighs in at a hefty 5GB, and is available to grab today.

However, according to a Reddit user (via Gamepur) who has purchased The New Order, the update isn’t required in order to get started with the alternate reality FPS.

Pleasingly, the The New Order also supports the ability to play the game as you download it.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is released today for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. The game runs at 1080p/60fps for Sony’s latest home console. View the launch trailer here.
