Great news for Redfall fans: the pre-load is now live! The thing is, it might take you a while and some 100GB on PC. Redfall is also available for pre-loading on Xbox Series X/S and will still require a sizable amount of hard drive space.
The next Game Pass drop (thanks XboxEra) can be pre-installed so that it is available to play as soon as it debuts on May 2. However, given that Redfall is a total pain in the ass when it comes to space requirements on PC and, to a lesser extent, Xbox Series X, you might want to double-check the amount of hard drive space you have before you do anything.
In case you didn’t know, Redfall is launching without a performance setting, limiting the game to just 30 FPS on Xbox Series X. Well, that’s really disappointing, and it also succeeded in generating some high-class criticism. Yes, even if it has good previews. To better understand the matter here, there is only a quality setting at the debut, which is a 60 FPS performance mode that will be added “later.”
Now, we could understand why some people find that a disappointment, but hey, let’s not rush into anything and wait for more details!
How much space does Redfall’s pre-loading take?
Redfall will use an astounding 94.3 GB of space on a PC, while you’ll require 77.31 GB (still a bit too much) of free space on an Xbox Series X. The Xbox Series S version will use a far more manageable 40.37 GB, making it inherently less taxing given that it is designed for less powerful systems.
What are your thoughts on Redfall’s arrival, and what do you expect from the game?
Redfall’s substantial file size may make you doubt if it’s worth the effort, even if Game Pass customers have nothing to lose by giving it a try. But giving it a try won’t hurt you, right?!
