The Division 2 is due out on March 15th and with it comes a day-one patch of seriously hefty proportions.
The patch includes various bug fixes and improvements for the main game, according to Ubisoft. While it’s nice to see that they’re already tackling potential launch problems, the size of the patches is another story entirely.
Xbox One and PC users will have to download a gigantic 48 to 52 GB sized patch. Regardless of whether you’ve installed the game from an actual physical disc or whether you’ve acquired it digitally, the final install size will be between 48 and 52 GB. No exceptions.
However, that’s the smaller patch. PlayStation 4 users will have to download a colossal 88 to 92 GB sized patch. Once again, regardless of whether you made a physical or digital purchase, the final install size will be somewhere between 88 and 92 GB.
If you’re playing on a PlayStation 4 console with only 500 GB of storage, it might be an idea to free up some space before The Division 2 releases.
In addition to these two hefty patches, players will receive a prompt on March 11th to download and install Title Update 1.5. Ubisoft have said that this patch will be approximately 2 GB, but will vary depending on platform, region, and preferred language.
Ubisoft also helpfully point out that players who’ve been fortunate enough to experience the Private or Open Beta builds can delete these builds from their system to free up space. Beta players will have to download the full game regardless.
The Division 2 is out on March 15th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC. You can check out the requirements for the PC version here.
