I see on the System Requirements that it says:
Install: 15 GB
Download: 6 GB

Does this mean that I can expect to be downloading 6 GB of data before I can start playing? I only have 3 MB service, so this will take 4 hours at best to download if that is the case. Or do they mean something else?

I brought this up in another thread and was discussed before i think. Some people think it will be 22GB right off the get go. Others think it will not be and they just have the 6GB in there so you have room for further updates and what not.

I think at absolute most, the download/patch/update after install will be 6gb. I'd hope it will be smaller, but what can ya do. Don't be to surprised though in the coming days to first few weeks of release that we get pretty large updates to fix bugs here and there. It will settle down eventually. Smiley: jester

The game was proclaimed as being 99% finished about 3 days ago? (Source) I would assume the disks were manufactured at least a week ago if not longer. So whats on the disk is not the final game. I think there is a good chance there will be a hefty download to complete before we get into the game. Hopefully not 6 GB but I would expect It will be. It does say on the site 6GB Download.

I do not expect to be able to play on release day due to server problems and downloads.

well i guess the torrent thing would prob be available right?? If its patching it would be the same thing no as we have been doing?

So basically run the client. then go into the documents folder and find the torrent file and just patch it through torrent??

My i got alot of "?" marks sorry xD

hopefully we can use torrent as we have been doing @_@

if the entire game on DISC is going to be 15 gb, then i dont see any way in **** for there to be 6gb of download initially, im am near certain that the "Download: 6GB" is what they reccommend you have availible to keep up with updates longterm. I am basing the theory soley on logic so dont quote me as official.

look at it this way... if the entire game is 15GB, and update of 6GB on the launch day means that there is an additional 40% of the total data that is not included on the CD's.... seens nigh impossible that this would be the case as they have spend years to get that 15gb done, so how would there be an additional 6gb that they would add in the last couple weeks since production of the CD's

There will deffinately be some updating going on upon initial install, but as to how large that is anobodys guess, but DEFFINATELY not gonna be 6GB i wouold guess somewhere around the 300-500mb range

Happy Travels!
