Batman: Arkham Knight to Weigh in at 45GB


Batman: Arkham Knight is going to be 45GB in size across all platforms. While 45GB may seem very large for some of you, this size is becoming much more common these days, with games like GTA V being 65GB and Battlefield Hardline being 60GB in size on PC. 

Batman: Arkham Knight will release on June 23rd, less than 3 weeks away and is expected to be one of the most popular games of this month.  

While the increase in a games storage requirements usually comes with larger, more detailed textures, and a generally larger, more detailed looking game, this trend is placing a lot of strain on gamers with a limited amount of storage space, particularly on the PS4 and Xbox One consoles which currently have 500GB Hard drives inside. Using an SSD for games is becoming an increasingly difficult task for a high end PC gamer, but the solution is simple, to place older games on larger, but slower, mechanical hard drives. 

It will definitely be interesting to see if the price of solid state storage can continue to decrease and become a viable storage medium for high end gamers again. 


Looking at all recent Gameplay footage, Batman looks like it will be a very good looking game and it will be using Nvidia GameWorks features, hopefully this game will run well on all PC at release, but we will be giving a performance report on this game regardless.

Right now is is rumored that Batman: Arkham Knight will be ported to DirectX 12 after release, but right now this remains unconfirmed by the developer.

I for one personally don't mind large games, just shows decent textures are being used, with the cost of 4K gaming slowly decreasing just means the envelope for high fedelity gaming is being pushed!
