If you’re planning on playing Resident Evil 7 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One then you’ll be glad to know that you wont have to go too crazy for file space, as the file sizes for each version of the game have been revealed. The information was revealed thanks to the respective PlayStation and Xbox game stores, with each version being just over 20GB.
The PlayStation 4 version of the game will take up 20.7GB of space, whereas the Xbox One version will take up 20.21GB of space. We don’t have the official file size for the PC version yet, though it’s likely a little more than the console versions. This will be good news for many gamers who are at all familiar with modern game downloads, as AAA releases can regularly go above 40GB and beyond depending on the game.
It was most recently revealed that Resident Evil 7 would be an Xbox Play Anywhere title, meaning that purchasing the game digitally on Xbox One will get you a PC version of the game for free. The Xbox Play Anywhere program was announced back at E3 2016, and has since featured major games like Gears of War 4 and Forza Horizon 3. This will be a great deal for Xbox and PC players, seeing as they’ll be missing out on the VR experience that PlayStation 4 owners will be able to experience with PlayStation VR initially.
While Resident Evil 7 will be getting an extensive season pass that features several pieces of DLC, there will be some free content coming to the game this Spring. The DLC is called “Not a Hero,” which features a new protagonist and sheds more light on the game’s story. While we’re still waiting for more information on the DLC, it’s also rumored to feature a different playstyle compared to the main game.
Resident Evil 7 will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on January 24th.
