The size of game installs has been a topic of interest especially this interest as high numbers are required by some. Looking at my install list on the PS4 shows Wolfenstein: The New Order taking 53GB of space, over a tenth of the console’s capacity. Killzone Shadow Fall is another high one at 45GB. That’s two games taking roughly a fifth of the PS4’s 500GB, so data management is something we’ll have to do more of.
So it is better news that Driveclub will require a 17GB install when it releases next month. This information came via Paul Rustchynsky, the game’s director, through Twitter earlier this afternoon.
With #DRIVECLUB having gone gold I get plenty of questions about the install size. We managed to compress it to just ~17GB in the end :)

Paul also said on Twitter that load times are on average around 10 seconds. If you’re ordering the digital version of Driveclub pre loading should be available from next week, though this excludes the PS Plus copy. Driveclub will be out from October 7th in North America, with the UK disc release happening on October 10th.
