Xbox One Launch Lineup Install Sizes Revealed

The design for the Xbox One console

There are a lot of games scheduled to launch alongside Microsoft’s Xbox One later this month and gamers that plan on picking up the shiny new console will have a hard time deciding which titles they’ll be bringing home. Once they get back to their respective domiciles, setup the platform, and download the mandatory day one update, there may be a compulsive urge to pickup an additional game or five. Luckily, users can simply download any of the launch titles from the Xbox Games Store.

All of this sounds great in theory, and the Xbox One’s 500GB hard drive can hold quite a bit of content, but gamers will have to be cautious with which games they choose to purchase at the digital storefront. As it turns out, certain pieces of next-gen software can take up a lot of memory. At least, this became instantly apparent when Moonlightswami, a gamer who got his Xbox One early as a result of a Target shipping error, posted a list featuring the file size of every available Xbox One launch title.

Check out the entire list of Xbox One launch titles and their respective file sizes below:

  • Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag — 20GB
  • Battlefield 4 — 33GB
  • Call of Duty: Ghosts — 39GB
  • Dead Rising 3 — 19GB
  • FIFA 14 — 8GB
  • Fighter Within — 9.2GB
  • Forza Motorsport 5 — 31GB
  • Just Dance 2014 — 22GB
  • Killer Instinct — 3.4GB
  • Lococyle — 13GB
  • Madden NFL 25 — 12GB
  • NBA 2K14 — 43GB
  • NBA Live 14 — 9GB
  • Powerstar Golf — 3.9GB
  • Ryse: Son of Rome — 34GB
  • Skylanders: Swap Force — 15GB
  • Xbox Fitness — 246MB
  • Zoo Tycoon — 2.6GB
  • Zumba World Party — 24GB

Xbox One games will need to be installed on the platform’s hard drive regardless of whether or not they’re digitally purchased, but it’s not currently known if brick-and-mortar copies will take a comparable chunk out of the system’s memory. A safe bet would be that the retail version of Call of Duty: Ghosts for Xbox One won’t take up a whopping 39GB of room, but Microsoft has yet to clarify whether or not this will be the case. The wait to find out shouldn’t be that long though — especially since the console launches in less than two weeks.

Do the file sizes of those Xbox One games have you concerned, Ranters? Will you be downloading many games at launch?

Xbox One launches on November 22, 2013.

    I’m getting the PS4 first and waiting on getting a One, but these sizes don’t bother me. A blu-ray disc can hold 50 GBs on a dual-layer, so it makes sense the next-gen would take advantage of that space. Honestly the one thing that irked me about the PS3 was they had that much space, but only used as much as a DVD which the 360 used. I can understand 3rd parties not doing it, because you want games like Modern Warfare 3 to be equal on both systems so as not to tick off your X-Box fans, but for Sony not to take advantage of it with Uncharted or God of War perplexed me.

    And speaking of 3rd parties, it didn’t hurt Square with FF13. They just made the 360 version multi-disc.
