Through the pages of the Microsoft store, we discover today that the Xbox One version of Fallout 76, the upcoming survival RPG of Bethesda, will have a file size of 45.28Gb. A figure all in all affordable, especially considering the fact that the game will contain within it a vast and rich open world to explore.
It is very likely that the size of the game will be substantially identical on PC and PlayStation 4. At the moment, no information has been disseminated regarding the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro editions.
We do not know if the figure indicated actually refers to the space that the game will occupy on the hard disk of our gaming platforms, or if it is linked only to the file size of the download.
The first stress test of Fallout 76 has just ended. Owners of Xbox One have had the opportunity to try the title with their own hands.
Pete Hines of Bethesda has recently confirmed that the game will have a second stress test, and that the cross-play could be added post-launch. At the moment, we do not know if the test will also extend to PC users and PlayStation 4, or if it will remain accessible only to Xbox players who are part of the Xbox Insider program and have a subscription to Xbox Live Gold.
With a subsequent tweet that you can find at the bottom of the news, Hines has also opened the door to the possible implementation of cross-play. After the company’s past statements, which seemed to leave no room for it, Hines declares that Bethesda may decide to add the feature after the game is released in November.
Recall that Fallout 76 will be released on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 14th.
That will likely be part of what they look at along with cross-platform play when they have time post-launch
