Revealed by the @PlayStationSize Twitter account (opens in new tab), Battlefield 2042 will supposedly take up 42.389 GB in the US and 42.717GB in the EU. This file size is also apparently without a day one patch, where it is expected to jump up. 

Battlefield 2042 is due to release on October 22, 2021 however, as the tweet also mentions, those who pre-ordered the game will get to play it a little early on November 19. If you pre-ordered the Gold or Ultimate versions, however, you get to jump in on November 12. The same goes for Battlefield 2042’s pre-load which starts on November 17 (standard) or November 10 (Gold/Ultimate.)

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
