Star Citizen will weigh in at 100GB

— 8:33 AM on March 12, 2015

We took a look at Star Citizen's damage model earlier this week, and we now know how much disk space it's going to take to deliver that kind of visual fidelity. In a post on the game's official forums unearthed by Polygon, one of the game's developers says to expect a client download of about 100GB.

Holy cats. For reference, recent titles like Assassin's Creed: Unity and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare occupy about 50GB of space each. The pain doesn't end with Star Citizen's client download, either. The forum post also indicated that patches for the game may end up being 14-20GB each.

So, yeah. Get ready to clear out your SSDs and upgrade your broadband connections. Hopefully, the price of solid-state storage continues to fall ahead of the game's 2016 release.
