The Division 2 requires a roughly 50 GB patch on Xbox and PC

One of Ubisoft's most-anticipated new titles is The Division 2, the sequel to the popular first game that launched back in 2016. The Division 2 is a third-person military shooter which tasks you with stopping malicious forces from seizing control of the government in the District of Columbia. It's unclear how the rest of the country is affected at this point, but we should find out soon enough.

As with any game nowadays, The Division 2 also requires a launch day update. While other games may slightly smaller patches, Ubisoft's latest title takes the crown. According to the publisher, you'll need to download between 48 and 52 GB on Xbox One and PC if you're using a disc. The file size depends on your region and preferred language. However, it's almost double on PlayStation 4 because you'll have to download 88 to 92 GB.

Since The Division 2 is an online game, there's no way around it. It's unclear if the Xbox One X or PlayStation 4 Pro patches will be larger to do better quality assets. The patches don't end there though! On March 11, a day before the Ultimate and Deluxe editions allow early access, everyone will be prompted to download another 2 GB patch.

Hopefully The Division 2 will be a polished experience when it launches next week. The beta tests went rather well, and the only criticism many gamers expressed were the lackluster visuals. Are you interested The Division 2? Let us know.
