Battlefield 4 has over 12GB of additional install options on Xbox 360, DICE recommends them

Tuesday, 15th October 2013 11:28 GMT By Dave Cook

Battlefield 4 has a mandatory 2GB install on Xbox 360, and over 12GB of additional installations should you wish to use them. DICE recommends doing them, however.

In an update posted on the EA Blog, DICE confirmed the mandatory 2GB install and added that Battlefield 4′s first disc houses the multiplayer, and offers an optional 6.6 GB of content, while the second campaign disc holds 5.8 GB of content.

You can choose to run these off the disc, but the blog continues, “We highly recommend performing these additional installations to make sure you have the best experience possible in Battlefield 4.”

Better start clearing your hard drive space if you want the best experience folks.

I wrote my impressions of the Battlefield 4 beta here.

    It’ll need em. Textures in the beta were almost non-existant half the time.

    Which is the point.

    Downloading a ~1GB beta > Downloading a ~3GB beta.

    They strip out what they can to make the build as small as possible, and with as few bugs as possible.

    Wtf are you on about? The beta was around 5GB in size. The 360 and PS3 versions contained everythingthat those consoles can handle. They did not take out anything from them what you sore I what your going to get. Why on earth would they try to make the beta less buggy when th sole purpose of a beta release is to find those bugs and fix them for the final release.

    Remember they will probably make the current gen version look bad on purpose to make the next gen version look more appealing getting people to buy new consoles.

    @3,You are wrong the Ps3 beta is 1.6gb I am going to say the 360 version is the same or close.

    @3 I am sure Dice did it because of file size.
