Resident Evil Village fans are eagerly anticipating the game’s release, despite the fact that it is still a few months away. Although waiting for a downloadable copy of a game is a fact of life for gamers, understanding how much space is required to install the game is crucial, and gamers now have an idea of how much space is required.
Players have been impressed by the visuals in Resident Evil Village’s latest trailers, and those graphics will take up a lot of room. Although gamers can play the new Resident Evil on last-gen computers, PCs, or the next-gen consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, anyone who wants to download and install the game should make sure they have enough hard drive space.
Players now have a better sense of what to expect thanks to a Microsoft Store page. Resident Evil Village is expected to take up 50.02 GB of space on the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. This is a significant improvement over Resident Evil 7, which wanted more than double the file size on all platforms. Graphics have evolved and been more technologically challenging since then, of course.
Since Resident Evil Village is a cross-generation title, it’ll most likely make the most of what the previous generation of consoles can do while still using the strength of newer systems. Despite the differences in capabilities, it’s worth noting that there’s no hint that the file sizes for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S versions of the game will be different.
Resident Evil Village is a step up in file size from Resident Evil 7, but it only takes up a small amount of room. Although some game developers are still able to compact their games to save space, many gamers are no doubt accustomed to games weighing in at over 200 GB these days. This has raised fears that games such as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare would not suit players’ hard drives. Clearing out about 50 GB of space shouldn’t be too difficult for most players.
Though there are still many mysteries surrounding Resident Evil Village, file size is no longer one of them. However, gamers who choose to play the game on a device other than an Xbox should be aware that file sizes can differ slightly between systems. The console versions of Resident Evil 7 took up about 20 GB of space, but PC players wanted to free up an extra 4 GB. As a result, having a little more room to be safe couldn’t hurt.
