Patch notes say approx. 902MB file size. I got 17.415GB updates on all of my consoles. Game was up to date as of yesterday. Is this just me? Anyone else seeing large file size updates? =/

    Hi Forgrim,

    My patch was the stated 902Mb (PS4).

    Thanks for the response TruthSeeker. Not sure what my particular issue is then.

    Good luck resolving it.

    I've got a problem with my visuals since selecting the new HDR option: all indoor areas are extremely dark :(

    For me...

    PS4 = ~900MB
    PS4Pro = ~40GB

    That's going to put a serious dent in my ISP download limit for the month.

    Me too. :/ What gives? People on Reddit are saying that it may have something to do with some people patching the digital version of the game and others patching the disc version... That makes no sense, though. Surely the size of the update should be the same, regardless? Are patches always larger if you downloaded the game and didn't install from the disc? This is my first time patching the game since switching to PS4 about three weeks ago (I have the slim model), so I'll be a bit peeved if I have to re-purchase the game on disc just to get reasonable patch sizes...

    Edit: perhaps the larger patch size is limited to PS4 Slim owners? I know it's a whopping 40GB for the Pro, so I guess it's possible that those of us on the Slim have a different patch size as well...

    I have the physical copy (disc) and still got that 40GB download on my PS4Pro so I don't think that's it...

    Yeah... I'm thinking that the different patch sizes may be system-based. For those of you getting a 17GB update: are you playing the game on a PS4 Slim? And those of you on the PS4 Pro: are you all getting a 40GB update?

    I'm on a standard PS4 and have the disc. Got the 902Mb.

    I'm on pro for weeks, discs, patch size is 902mb.
    If you have never downloaded the patch on your new pro, then 40+gb initially.

    Replug your router and redownload your game. We will assume the issue has been resolved if we do not hear from you within 96 hours.

    This is all a bit bizarre. Surely when you download/install and patch the game for the first time, all updates are installed? I thought it wasn't possible to play the game otherwise? It makes no sense why some of us are getting different patch sizes.

    This is the strangest of them all! I thought it was just PS4 Pro users who were getting the big patch... How long have you had your PS4? Is this your first time patching the game, or...?

    I purchased and installed the digital PS4 download less than two weeks ago but haven't had the time to play it..

    The initial download for my standard 1TB PS4 (not pro or slim) was approx 66 GB which I downloaded over two days.

    I'm really not sure what determines the size of the PS4 download, but I have just turned on my PS4 and the Patch Version 1.19 file size is 10.108 GB.

    So I guess for a new, full game digital download on standard PS4's the total is currently 70-80 GB.

    Bye for now and have fun out there.

    Hi Ghostface,

    Is there sufficient space on your drive?

    Hey all this is how PSN now does things. It will update what it needs to update. The pre check that it is doing before actually downloading is checking every file for the game. It then pulls all what does not match and updates it. This fix's corruption in the game so that you have a matching version as what was released. so the sizes will be different for people.

    Here's a fun one. Downloaded the (digital) game last week on a regular 500GB PS4. Had 52GB of free space available to me, and download manager still said I didn't have enough room to download 1.19.

    Do I really need the full games size in free space for every update? I ended up completely deleting the game and am now redownloading it just for a patch.

    Hi all,

    Last week I also downloaded the full game onto a second PS4 for our family and the initial download was approximately 63 GB, not the same as our first PS4 at approximately 66 GB.

    We downloaded the game over two days (started in the evening of day 1 and finished the next day, so approximately a day for each download based upon our internet resources.)

    Then after the PS4 maintenance last week, there was an additional update for the newly installed PS4 of approximately 16 GB and for the one we installed 2 weeks ago, the update / patch was approximately 1 GB, so very different sizes for both PS4's.

    Based on our experiences of downloading for two PS4's within the last 2 weeks, I would say you will need at least 80 GB of free disc space on your PS4 before starting the download.

    Bye for now and have fun out there.
