The Elder Scrolls Online on PS4 & Xbox One Exceeds 50GB Blu-Ray Disc, Will Require 15GB Day One Update

April 22, 2015Written by Jason Dunning


As revealed in the beta announcement post today and hinted at by the PlayStation Store, The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited is going to require a lot of hard drive space on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with the client sitting at 50GB and a day one update running another 15GB.

The team discussed why Tamriel Unlimited requires so much space:

ESOTU is an incredibly massive game, both in terms of sheer scope and the data required to bring you this truly enormous experience. At the moment, the client will exceed a 50GB Blu-ray disc which means there will also be a large day-one patch that is somewhere in the region of 15GB.

Since The Elder Scrolls Online is an online-only title, if you buy the retail version of the game, you’ll need to download that extra 15GB before playing. If you purchase the digital version, it’ll be at least a 65GB download.

Ahead of its launch on June 9, you can pre-order The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on the North American PlayStation Store (PlayStation Plus members save 10%), with European pre-order set to go live soon.

As a reminder, the game won’t require a monthly subscription fee.
