Titanfall has over 35GB of uncompressed audio

40 sec read

PC gamers who have had their eye on Titanfall are probably well-aware that if they didn’t buy the physical copy of the game, they’d have to download the installer which is a little over 20GB in size. That and combined with the fact that game takes up about 48GB after installation is a little astounding, especially since the Xbox version of the game is around 17GB.

Titanfall‘s PC and Xbox One versions have wildly different install sizes, clocking in at 48GB and 17GB, respectively. Respawn Entertainment has now addressed the community’s biggest question: why? Lead engineer Richard Baker came forth and stated that a majority of the install size, 35GB to be exact, is tied to uncompressed audio. This approach was taken to ensure that low-end PCs could still enjoy a smooth Titanfall experience. “We have audio we either download or install from the disc, then we uncompress it. We probably could have had audio decompress off disc, but we were a little worried about min spec and the fact that a two-core machine would dedicate a huge chunk of one core to just decompressing audio.”
