The Division 2 Physical Copy for PS4 Requires 90 GB Patch

The Division 2

We are only a few days away from the release of The Division 2 worldwide. Well if you are a consumer of physical games and you have a PS4, we have very bad news: it could be several hours before you can play this brand new title thanks to the immense size of its first update.

Ubisoft uploaded a support page of The Division 2, which revealed the size of its day one patch on different platforms. According to the company, this includes “various bug fixes and improvements for the main game.” The big surprise is that the PS4 version needs an immense 90 GB download.

“If you purchased a physical copy of the game, begin installing from the disc. Provided you are online, your console will simultaneously download Title Update 1 while you install it. Expect a 88-92 GB download, depending on your region and preferred language. Whether installed from a disc or downloaded digitally, the final HDD install size will be between 88-92 GB,” says the information.

Even more striking is the fact that the download for PS4 is almost twice the size of its counterparts Xbox One or PC, about which Ubisoft gave no explanation. According to the minisite, the necessary patch in these other consoles is 48 GB to 52 GB depending on your region and language.

Finally, the distributor warned in advance that a second update (1.5) is also coming, which will weigh about 2 GB and will solve audio problems that are cut or not. This will be launched on March 11.

Remember that it does not matter if you chose the physical or digital route, you will always have to download all the updates. The big difference is that if you bought your game from the console instead of a disk, day 1 patches are usually downloaded even before the game is available, so you do not have to wait a second from the moment it is unlocked.
