You'll need a big hard drive for Red Dead Redemption 2's install size

Red Dead Redemption 2 is just around the corner, and new information keeps on coming out about the open-world adventure. Today, a Red Dead Redemption 2 PlayStation 4 Pro bundle provided some more information about the game's install size, multiplayer, and marketing.

According to an image of the packaging from Rockstar Intel, Rockstar's latest project features up to 32-person multiplayer. It seems that in Red Dead Online, you'll be encountering only a few dozen gamers at any given time. This is preferable because — if Grand Theft Auto Online is any indication — chaos follows large groups.

Sony has partnered with Rockstar in order to promote the game, and this means that PlayStation 4 owners get access to mysterious Red Dead Online content a month before those who play on Xbox One. However, the game supposedly runs at native 4K resolution on Xbox One X, so that's a trade-off many will probably make in order to achieve greater clarity. The PlayStation 4 Pro reconstructs the image so it comes in at a little over 1440p.

Now comes the shocking revelation. Red Dead Redemption 2 requires a minimum of 105 GB. Yes, the Western will be one of the biggest games on consoles. It's unclear if all 105 GB will be downloaded when the title launches because Red Dead Online is coming in November, but it's eventually going to get there. Be sure to purchase an external hard drive or solid state drive before October 26, 2018.
