Monster Hunter: World's file size isn't exactly a behemoth


A pleasant surprise

The world is big and monsters are big (usually), but Monster Hunter: World isn't necessarily very big. At least the file size, that is.

With Monster Hunter: World releasing later this month on January 26, reports are surface about the game's base install. According to this photo that PlayStation Universe found, the Japanese PS4 version of Monster Hunter: World is 16GB. That's in line with the Xbox version which the Microsoft Store lists as 13.62GB.

Pretty small, right? Not that file size speaks to quality in any way whatsoever. I just kind of expected something bigger. Maybe there's a 50GB day one patch to bring our collective irritation back up to normal levels.
