Ellie’s hit list is long and blood-stained. Earlier this week, Naughty Dog treated us to 20 minutes of feel-bad brutalized carnage as Ellie ruthlessly murdered everyone within eyesight — including a poor Vita owner. Her next victim? Your PlayStation 4’s hard drive.
According to a reddit user (as reported by Twisted Voxel), The Last of Us Part II‘s install size is 78.3GB. That’s just the raw download, and any day-one patches will push it higher. The minimum free space required is 100GB, so we’ve been expecting big and beautiful all along.
That’s really big, but Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is like 6TB at this point. On one hand, a lot of people are only working with a 500GB PS4, so The Last of Us Part II will take up about 20 percent of that. On the other hand, it’s the end of a console generation and of course game installs have swelled now that we’re closer to PS5 than PS4. So, I guess this is a public service announcement. If you’re playing The Last of Us Part II in June, make the necessary accommodations to rearrange your hard drive space.
