The Death Stranding file size has been revealed thanks to an official package shot. Discovered on the official pre-order page for Death Stranding Limited Edition console on BestBuy.com (Courtesy of users on Discord), according to the packaging description on the bottom of the image below, the Death Stranding file size will require a minimum of 55GB. We honestly aren’t surprised by this seeing that titles have been getting bigger and bigger throughout the generation, but at least the good news is that we won’t be needing to install two separate discs like players had to do with Red Dead Redemption 2 due to size.
The nice thing from the description is that it also reiterates that the title online play is completely optional, despite the game’s director, Hideo Kojima stressing the importance of it through how connections influence the world and such. He has stated in the past that the online is optional, and it was also confirmed last month that it wouldn’t be tied behind a paywall either as PlayStation Plus won’t be required, should you choose to take part in online play.
Death Stranding is set for release this coming November 8, exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Be on the lookout for our extensive coverage when the game launches, along with a soon-to-be-released launch trailer that Kojima has been teasing for some time now.
