PlayStation 4 launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall is a 50 gigabyte download, according to Sony Computer Entertainment UK boss Fergal Gara.
Speaking to Eurogamer, Gara said digitally download games are “definitely going to grow as a means of consumption,” and “there are big innovations in the PS4 to make it more attractive and more easy gamer wise to want to download.”
He continued, “The ‘Play As You Download’ functionality, for example, means you don’t need the whole file before you go. This is a little bit counterbalanced by the fact the files themselves are getting bloody big. Killzone: Shadow Fall is an uber file – I think it’s cracking on for 50GB. It looks it, too, when you see it.”
Gara stressed that Sony’s pre file delivery is “not perfect,” nor “seamless,” but “a major area of focus.”
“The file version of the game versus the disc version of the game maybe needs to go through additional QA and additional testing,” Gara said.
Killzone: Shadow Fall is due out for PlayStation 4 on November 15. It will be available in both physical and download versions.
