Start clearing some hard drive space: according to a retailer promotion, Oct 26th's highly anticipated action adventure game Red Dead Redemption II will take up 105GB or space, while its online portion will accommodate up to 32 players.
PlayStation and Rockstar are pushing the October release of Wild West adventure Red Dead Redemption II with a bundle that includes the game along with a PlayStation 4 Pro console.
In announcing the deal on Sept. 24, PlayStation detailed the benefits of playing Red Dead Redemption II on a 4K display as well as enhanced graphics and optimized performance for a stunningly sharp and detailed look (when compared to a PS4 system) as well as increased image clarity through a PS4 Pro Supersampling Mode setting.
While PlayStation limited its visuals to box front, game cover art, and standard PS4 Pro and controller imagery, US retailers, including Target and Walmart, as well as posted back of box shots, including small print detailing several previously unmentioned aspects.
Officially speaking, the game will require 105GB in order to install, on PlayStation 4 Pro at least, that puts PS4 up to date, if not at the top of the pile.
In doing so it surpasses the likes of Doom, Uncharted 4, and recently call of Duty installs, perhaps not unexpected given Rockstar's insistence on creating a comprehensive look at the 20th century USA.
Additionally, there's a 30-day exclusivity period on selected online content coming to Red Dead Online, which is in line with similar preferential deals with Activation concerning its post-release support for call of Duty and Destiny titles.
The box also specifies that online multiplayer, lied ashes Red Dead Online, will cater for up to 32 players.
Though that's less than the 100-person matches that players like Battle Royale games like Fortnite, PUBG and, from mid-October, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 have become accustomed to, it represents a slight increase on the 30-person headcount or Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto Online and a doubling on 2010's Red Dead Redemption.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is expected to have a profound impact on the video game industry's fortunes in 2018, with the annual call of Duty and Battlefield franchises moving from their usual spots in order to accommodate it.
Rockstar Games' previous release, Grand Theft Auto V, is currently ranked behind Tetris and Minecraft as the third best-selling video game or all time. – AFP Relaxnews
